Sail-World.com : Winchrite - for lazy days or extra muscle-power
Winchrite - for lazy days or extra muscle-power

'Winchrite'    .

Our product of the week, WinchRite is an affordable, light-weight, safe, cordless electric winch handle designed specifically for use on sailing boats on those occasions when you are lacking a little muscle-power - or just wanting a lazy sail.

The design is, naturally, weather resistant and it has a good extended lithium battery life. This product is unique in that it is a 'clean sheet of paper' design, specifically designed for the job, rather than a conversion of an existing power tool. It is therefore durable and toughened for the marine environment, ergonomic to use and perfectly suited for the job. Winchrite tows up to 25 - 30 kg., corresponding to the strength of an average person.

How does it work?
The cordless Winch Rite handle produces great torque at variable speeds and was designed with safety in mind. The winch cog contains a unique drive to prevent failure in both rotation directions and will not unthread or snap the retaining screw. This electric winch handle works on all single and two speed winches where a standard eight point handle is utilized. Operate the WinchRite handle at the lowest speed of your winch to ensure maximum pull and the lowest battery consumption.

It also has an integrated rubber inlay for anti-skid prevention and a weather resistant cover for increased durability and protection.

Winchrite can operate more than one winch if your sailing requires it -  .. .
