RC Rope/Chain Series

Maxwell's all new RC series windlasses proudly follow in the highly successful footsteps of the Freedom, Liberty and HRC fully automatic rope/chain anchor winches. RC10 and RC8 are available in both capstan and low profile versions. RC6 is available in low profile version only.

The all new RC12 Series incorporates Maxwell s latest stylish innovation in automatic rope/chain technology. Retaining the classic open design styling more appropriate on larger boats, the RC12 Series represents the next generation of rope/chain windlass evolution in every respect.

Every Maxwell automatic rope/chain windlass is available
with all the necessary components for fully automatic dual
direction control in a competitively priced package.

Standard Equipment:
  • Windlass
  • Circuit breaker/isolator panel
  • Up/down remote control panel
  • Emergency crank/clutch release handle


Maxwells revolutionary new chainwheel.

Maxwell once again leads the market in innovative thinking with the introduction of their latest Wave Design  chainwheel. This patented rope/chain wheel incorporates two unique design concepts that greatly improve the handling and control of the rope/chain spliced rode. The outer ribs of the chainwheel are angled slightly forward ensuring that the rope and the chain are smoothly guided in the wheel during anchor retrieval.

As the rope pulls into the wheel, the opposite facing inner ribs grip the rope in an undulating manner, securing the rope more firmly in a 'wave pattern' action that is far superior to the traditional 'jam cleat' manner of holding the rope compared to all other products on the market. Not only does this Wave Design  hold the rope more securely, it is also kinder on the rope resulting in increased longevity of your anchor rode.

Wave Design  Chainwheel

Is fitted to all RC Series windlasses, designed for anchor rodes with any marine grade chain, G4, BBB, Proof Coil and Metric.

Features

RC6:
  • The combined stainless steel and chromed bronze RC6 Series utilises 6mm/7mm (1/4") chain spliced to 12mm (1/2 ) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
  • The RC6 features Maxwell s revolutionary, and patented, new Wave Design  chainwheel.
  • Providing most of the features of the larger RC8, the RC6 has been designed with the smaller, trailer boat market in mind.
  • The in-line, vertical gearbox and motor means quick and easy installation by either the boat yard or the DIY aftermarket customer.
  • An inexpensive, high performance and great looking windlass; the RC6 is built for durability and years of trouble free use.
  • The RC6 is a Low Profile unit (no optional capstan drum).
RC8:
  • The all new stainless steel RC8-6 fully automatic rope/chain windlass is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 6mm/7mm (1/4 ) chain spliced to 12mm (1/2 ) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
  • The larger stainless steel RC88 can be used with 8mm (5/16 ) chain spliced to 14mm (9/16 ) three strand or 8-plait rope.
  • The ingeniously designed rope/chain gypsy (chainwheel) is able to accommodate a wide range of chain pitch differences within the specified chain size diameters suitable for use with the RC8 Series.
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a MAX-grip  capstan drum version, with drum made in chromed bronze, are available.
  • Simple two piece installation saves time and money and allows easy retrofitting without disassembly of the windlass.
  • Unique spacer tube design allows installation through virtually any deck thickness and the multiple mounting positions and self aligning gearbox ensure optimal location of gearbox and motor in virtually all installation situations.
  • The RC8 features Maxwell s revolutionary, and patented, new Wave Design  chainwheel.
  • The heavy duty stainless steel pressure arm is designed to effectively help grasp the rope/chain splice, giving the RC8 an unparalleled level of performance. In combination with a heavy duty, large wire diameter, stainless steel pre-loaded spring, the pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure.
  • The RC8 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes.
  • Huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Full disassembly capability of the topworks utilising only the handle provided and an Allen key.
  • Manual override and Free Fall, using the emergency crank/clutch handle provided.
  • Sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides maximum output via a precision worm and worm wheel.
RC10:
  • The combined stainless steel and chromed bronze RC10 fully automatic windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16 ) and 10mm (3/8 ) short link chain and 14mm and 16mm (5/8 ) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope.
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a fluted stainless steel capstan drum version, are available.
  • Simple two piece installation saves time and money and allows easy retrofitting without disassembly of the windlass. Unique spacer tube design allows installation through virtually any deck thickness and the multiple mounting positions and self aligning gearbox ensure optimal location of gearbox and motor in virtually all installation situations.
  • Full disassembly capability of the topworks utilising only the handle provided and an Allen key.
  • The RC10 is manufactured from marine-grade 316 stainless steel and chromed bronze for long term durability. The heavy duty stainless steel pressure arm, coupled with the unique rope/chain gypsy, is designed to effectively grasp the splice between rope and chain, giving the RC10 an unparalleled level of performance.
  • In combination with a heavy duty, large wire diameter, stainless steel pre-loaded spring, the pressure arm pivots on a trouble free bearing, thereby exerting maximum control pressure on the rode and splice.
  • The RC10 works just as effectively with all chain rodes for those who desire a Low Profile, elegantly styled windlass on their foredeck.
  • Huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Cone type clutch/brake mechanism permits manual, Free Fall anchoring.
  • Sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides maximum output via a precision worm and worm wheel.
RC12:
  • The RC12 fully automatic windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 10mm (3/8 ) short link chain and 16mm (5/8 ) to 20mm (3/4 ) three strand or 8-Plait rope (RC12-10) and 12mm/13mm (1/2 ) short link chain and 20mm (3/4 ) three strand or 8-Plait rope (RC12-12).
  • With a maximum pull of 1590 kg (3500 lb), and an anchor retrieval rate of 15m/min (50ft/min), the RC12-12 is one of the fastest and gruntiest windlasses in its class.
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a fluted stainless steel capstan drum version, are available.

  • The elegantly designed deckplate and chainpipe cover are manufactured in polished marine-grade 316 stainless steel, as are the heavy duty pressure arm, stripper, chainwheel and fluted capstan drum.
  • The huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Double cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits Free Fall anchoring. Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement, ensuring safe and precise operator control.
  • The RC12 features Maxwell s revolutionary and patented new Wave Design  chainwheel. Refer to RC6 page for more information about this innovative feature.
  • Emergency manual retrieval is made simple and easy with Maxwell s unique Active Latch Ratchet System operation that prevents backwind of the windlass during manual hauling of the anchor.
  • The Maxwell-designed, all new and innovative black, hard anodised gearbox provides numerous advantages: - Fast and easy windlass installation - More corrosion resistant - Easy to maintain and service - Takes up less room in the anchor locker - 75:1 Ratio (RC12-10) or 100:1 Ratio (RC12-12), single stage design with less moving parts, for smoother and quieter operation - Allows for multi-positioning of the gearbox/motor.

Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper or snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chainstopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully riased position while under way.
