If you love a feed of fresh crayfish, but don’t like doing the hard work pulling the pot up then the Maxwell Anchormax might be the perfect solution without breaking the bank.
The Anchormax is a versatile vertical capstan which doubles as a one-way general purpose winch, popular with boaters as it is small but powerful, and doesn’t draw excessive power.
For WA boaters it can be used to pull pots or as a davit winch, and can even be used on a tinnie to retrieve an anchor.
Easy to install, the Anchormax has an extremely high power to weight ratio.
It has a maximum pull rating of 330kg and a speed of 32 metres per minute and these qualities have made it one of Australasia’s most popular capstans.
In particular, it shapes as an ideal option for anyone looking to make life easier for the next cray season, especially those getting on in years or with a bad back, or who can’t find a regular deckie to assist.
The 2017-18 recreational cray season opens in October in the bottom half of the State.
