The all new compact HRC FF are Maxwell’s horizontal versions of the latest innovative new vertical RC6 and RC8 automatic rope/chain windlasses. The new HRC FF are packed with original and proven features including patented rode management technology developed by Maxwell.


  • Simple bolt down installation ensures effortless and rapid on-deck installation and set up.
  • Guaranteed trouble free rode transition from rope to chain, by means of an innovative, proven and patented pressure arm system, within a safe enclosed design.

  • Now incorporating Maxwell's automatic free-fall technology. Simply activate the windlass Free Fall lever, operate your down control (helm station or footswitch) and the windlass will freefall your anchor. Ready to lift the anchor? Activate the up control and the free fall device automatically disengages allowing you to power up your anchor.
