HRC10 Rope/Chain Series: Maxwell's all new HRC10 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 HRC10’s flawlessly handle rope up to 14mm (9/16") -16mm (5/8") and chain up to 8mm (3/8") in size, including the thick rope to chain splice. The modern appearance of the HRC10 Series retains the classic good looks of previous Maxwell horizontal windlasses, while incorporating design features years ahead of its competitors. Capstan is included in this listing.
Maxwell’s 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.
The Wave Design Chainwheel Is fitted to all HRC Series windlasses, designed for anchor rodes with any marine grade chain, G4, BBB, Proof Coil and Metric.
The all new HRC10-8 fully automatic horizontal windlass is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 8mm (5/16”) short link chain and 14mm (9/16”)-16mm (5/8") three strand or 8-braid (plait) nylon rope.
The aesthetically pleasing above deck design, evolved from the philosophy of form follows function, encapsulates the motor and drive in a two part watertight case, saving space below deck.
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.
The HRC10 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes for those who desire the added security and holding power of an all-chain anchor system.
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 and anchor if required.
The sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and wormwheel.

WINDLASS AND CAPSTAN SELECTION CHART- (see images)
This chart serves as a basic guide to assist in selecting the appropriate anchor winch system for your boat. Please note: Size, displacement and type of vessel, as well as anchoring conditions, must be taken into consideration when selecting an anchor winch. Vessels of heavy displacement and/or high windage will require larger windlasses. All systems assume the use of a chain stopper, chain snubber or mooring cleat to remove the load when setting or breaking the anchor loose. The maximum pulling capacity of the windlass should not be less than three times the total weight of the ground tackle. Should you require any assistance or information, please do not hesitate to contact the Smart Crew.
* All Maxwell windlasses are RODE counter ready with sensor hole drilled and magnet fitted.
*The use of shortlink chain is essential.
*LIGHT DISPLACEMENT - Refers to a vessel which is relatively light in weight compared to its overall length.
*HEAVY DISPLACEMENT - Refers to a vessel which is relatively heavy in weight compared to its overall length.
*The chart refers to anchor windlass selection only. When selecting a stern capstan for the same boat, Maxwell uses one size smaller drive, or down to a minimum of 50% of the pull rating of the windlass ( unless specified otherwise.)
Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper and/or alternative snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chain stopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
