Maxwell's all new HRC Horizontal Series represents yet another breakthrough in performance and anchor handling excellence. These horizontal, fully automatic rope/chain windlasses have been designed to meet the demands for use on larger vessels up to 16 metres (52 feet), which require a completely above deck installation system. The HRC's flawlessly handle rope up to 16mm (5/8") and chain up to 10mm (3/8") in size, including the thick rope to chain splice.

The modern appearance of the HRC Series retains the classic good looks of previous Maxwell horizontal windlasses, while incorporating design features years ahead of its competitors.


  • Aesthetically pleasing above deck design encapsulates the motor and drive in a two part watertight case.
  • The two part case consists of a die cast, marine-grade hard anodised alloy front section and a rugged and easily removable composite motor cover aft section.
  • This two piece watertight case allows for quick and easy, on-deck, routine maintenance.
  • Simple bolt down installation ensures effortless and rapid on-deck installation and set up.
  • The stainless steel pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure on the rode (rope, splice or chain).
  • The new and revolutionary patented Wave Design™ chainwheel is able to accommodate a wide range of chain pitch differences, within the specified chain size diameters, suitable for use with the HRC10 Series.
  • The unique Maxwell wrap around™ horizontal chainwheel ensures that more than 90° of the wheel is used, allowing greatly improved rope and chain handling compared with competitor designs.
  • Workss effectively with all-chain rodes
  • The integral chain pipe and 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 and emergency crank recovery of the rode
