VWC2500 Vertical Windlass & Chain Pipe 12V - 3/8" BBB Chain Only

The VWC Series is designed for automatic vertical handling of chain-only anchor rodes while offering an independent capstan for the retrieval of a secondary rope and chain rode or to assist with docking procedures.

Features:

  • Fully automatic single or dual direction chainwheel operation
  • High-quality finish on above deck components, manufactured from marine grade stainless steel (AISI 316), for long term durability
  • Integral chain pipe and stripper are aligned for virtually jam-tree operation providing automatic feed of chain into and out of the anchor locker
  • Port and starboard chain pipes for twin installations (Sizes 2500 and above only.)
  • Cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits manual 'free fall' anchoring; Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement ensuring safe and precise operator control
  • Chainwheel locking pawl
  • Clutch disengagement of the chainwheel enables independent rope hauling from any direction, using the Max-grip™ snag-tree warping drum for positive control of all ropes
  • Simple through deck installation by modular design and precise alignment of gearbox to the topworks utilising marine-grade stainless steel bolts
  • Anodized aluminium gearbox and spacer tube on all models
  • Heavy duty, dual direction motor, designed for marine winches
