Suitable for 6mm (1/4″) chain and 12mm (1/2″) 8-plait nylon rope, the RC6 automatic rope/chain anchor winch is Maxwell’s smallest windlass in the vertical RC series and is most commonly used on boats ranging from 4.5-7.5m (15-25′). With more than 12,000 in global circulation, the RC6 has risen to become one of the most popular windlasses in the RC range.
- The RC6 features Maxwell’s patented Wave Design™ chainwheel. Refer below for more information about this innovative feature.
- 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 meaning there is no optional capstan drum. If a capstan is needed in addition to the rope/chain gypsy, then a step up to the RC8-6 would be the next option to consider.
