Muir Compact Horizontal Automatic Freefall Anchor Winch



Product Description

The powerful Compact range of horizontal windlasses provides the perfect alternative to vertical models for all recreational, commercial and fishing vessels up to 25 metres.

The Compact series of horizontal windlasses are ideal for installations where chain locker space is at a premium or not easily accessible. These complete above deck units are constructed from durable marine alloy housings enclosing the powerful and heavy duty motor and gearbox, waterproofing and protecting it from the harsh elements. All running gear is designed for durability and performance, manufactured from marine grade bronze with luxury chrome or optional traditional polished bronze finish.

The Compact series incorporates many of the innovative features available across the vertical Atlantic range.

All Compact models can be used with rope-chain anchor rodes.

The Rope Chain Management System (RCMS) facilitates smooth rope-chain operation and is available by replacing a standard chain pipe with the RCMS unit. RCMS incorporates a spring loaded finger arrangement fitted to separate chain pipe to follow and pass through automatically. A stripper/peeler assembly fits around the gypsy hub to prevent the rope from jamming and facilitates a smooth vertical drop into the chain locker. RCMS is an integrated and standard unit on the HR600 and HR700 and should be considered for all Compact models where rope-chain combination is being utilised.

Muir’s Compact range of windlasses includes automatic freefall models. These windlasses provide AUTOMATIC and rapid free fall with a simple flick of a switch from the helm. The freefall can be interrupted at any stage. Ideal for single-handed boating, fishing, or for vessels with inaccessible foredecks.
