The UniPower is a single-speed winch that combines the advantages of a low-profile manual winch with the power of a 12- or 24-volt, low-amp-draw motor. What makes it unique is that the motor is partially imbedded inside the drum, so that it extends only 4 1/8 inches (105 mm) below the winch base—a critical feature for small boats where space under the cabin top is limited.
Winches come in durable lightweight aluminum or mirror-finished chrome, with white or black composite tops, self-tailing jaws and skirts. High-strength composite self-tailing jaws and skirt save weight. Composite roller bearings reduce friction under load and don’t require lubrication. The stripper arm and load-carrying gears on both aluminum and chrome versions are 17-4PH stainless steel for strength and durability.
Winches include a waterproof switch and a one-speed control box with built-in current controller to protect hardware by electronically limiting the winch’s maximum pull to 900 kg (1984 lbs).
