Battcar systems lets you raise, lower, and reef at any wind angle possible so you can enjoy effective sail shape underway, for a great price. You should choose a battcar instead of an in-boom or in-mast furling system because furling systems can cost four to six times as much as a battcar system. The system doesnât require anything else to work, and wonât need an electric winch if you can hoist the weight of the sail. Is also safer to use by yourself or with a shorthanded crew than a furling system.
The Harken Battcar is made of just one-piece aluminum, with the cars and track lightweight but tough enough to last for years. The Torlon ball bearings move smoothly for a fast sail hoists, reefs, and douses. The captive bearings allows the cars to roll off the track for cleaning and upkeep easily. The CB and sider battcar systems use the same track, you can mix slider cars with CB cars to get the perfect system for your sailboat and wallet.
The different classes of the battcar system go to different sizes of boats. Charts are included on each class to show the sizes each system is designed for.
