Pewaukee, Wisconsin - All bronze and all chrome winches join Harken's repertoire of popular lightweight Radials, providing owners with even more choices for a finishing touch that will reflect their personal styles and tastes. The new lines join aluminum (black drum/base/top), chrome (chrome drum/black top/base), and white (chrome drum/white top/base) Harken Radials.
"We think it's important to have multiple aesthetic options in our Radial winch line," say International Sales Manager, Davide Burrini. "Owners should be able to control the look of their boat, and our expanded line allows them even more choices to express their preferred styles."
Like all winches in the Radial line, these new entries have outstanding holding power. When easing, the angle of the ribs drives the wraps down, preventing overrides for a smooth, controlled release. The stripper arm completely covers the winch top and does not rotate, so fingers and clothing won't catch in moving parts. Composite roller bearings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and don't require lubrication. Load carrying gears and pins are 17-4 PH stainless steel.
Winches can be disassembled and serviced on deck, with captive roller bearings and snap-fit parts lifting out as a unit. A patented stud-bolt mounting option allows quick installation without removing the drum. Conversion to electric is easy, with the same drilling template used to mount manual and electric winches of the same size.
Available in 1-,2-, and 3-speed self-tailing or plain-top styles; manual, electric, or hydraulic drives.
