  • The RC6 features Maxwell’s revolutionary and patented new Wave Design chainwheel. Refer below for more information about this innovative feature.
  • The in-line, vertical gearbox and motor mean quick and easy installation by either the boat yard or the DIY aftermarket customer.
  • An inexpensive, high-performance, great-looking windlass, the RC6 is built for durability and years of trouble-free use.
  • The RC6 is a Low Profile unit (no optional capstan drum).

Maxwell’s revolutionary new chainwheel.

Maxwell once again leads the market in innovative thinking by introducing their latest Wave Design™ chainwheel. This patented rope/chain wheel incorporates two unique design concepts that significantly 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.

Wave Design Chainwheel

Is fitted to all RC Series windlasses, designed for anchor rodes with any marine grade chain, G4, BBB, Proof Coil and Metric.
