Harken Radial Winches are designed for sailors who want lightweight, extremely strong winches with plenty of power.
The drum's gripping surface is shaped for each winch size and drum material and features diagonal ribs rather than textured abrasive materials to maximize gripping power and greatly reduce wear. When easing, the angle of the ribs stops the line from rising, preventing overides and providing a smooth controlled release as the line exits the winch.
Aluminium drums and high strength composite self-tailing jaws and skirt save weight. Composite roller bearings reduce friction under load and don't require lubrication. Load-carrying gears and pins are 17-4PH stainless steel for strength and durability.
Easy To Service and Maintain
Winches can be disassambled and serviced on deck. The socket, washer and screw-top snap-fit together to simplify maintenance and for mistake-free assembly.
Radial winches offer a 20-50 percent weight saving compared to the Classic Harken Line of winches.
