- Power rating: 430 lbs. (196 kg)
- Power supply: Manual, non-electric
- Retrieval rate: One full stroke (forward and back motion combined) yields about 1' of chain
- Chain size: 1/4"HT, 5/16"ALL, 3/8"ALL (ALL = HT, BBB and PC)
Note: Chain only gypsy (gypsy does not accept rope rode), Capstan accepts rope rode, Manual (human) powered
Note: The above chainwheels are designed to fit short link chain only; BBB, ISO spec, etc. to maximize the number of pockets and gripping. Chain is manufactured by many sources. It is critical to match the chain to the chainwheel, therefore please be careful when sizing. Defender only offers short link chain, BBB and ISO Spec. Do not use NACM spec chain as these have longer links and will not work in a windlass. Non-ISO chain sizes like NACM spec or miss-matching the chain and gypsy may allow the chain to skip in or jump from the gypsy pockets.
