The compact, lightweight HRC6 is Maxwell's solution for smaller vessels than need an above-deck windlass that is feature-packed, reliable, attractive, and affordable.

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.

Integrated composite nylon through-deck hawse pipe for ease of installation and smooth, snag-free operation.

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.

Aesthetically pleasing above deck design, encapsulating the motor and drive in a watertight case, saving space below deck and allowing simple routine maintenance.

Die cast, marine-grade, alloy case is hard anodized for unsurpassed marine protection.

High efficiency spur gearbox incorporating a robust non-backwind mechanism.

High speed, jam-free retrieval of rope and chain controlled from a remote panel mounted Up/Down switch.

Emergency 'free fall' function in the event of onboard power failure.

Heavy duty, dual direction motor incorporating new technology features, including integrated wiring for quick electrical installation, is easily removed for simple routine electric brush maintenance.

Wave Design™ Chainwheel

Maxwell's 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 used in other products on the market. Not only does Maxwell's Wave Design™ hold the rope more securely, it is also kinder on the rope resulting in increased longevity of your anchor rode.
