Freefall drum winch answers industry call

Muir Winches Australia has launched its latest product – an auto Free Fall drum winch – which will be released at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Queensland between 20th and 23rd May.

Designed and made in Australia (under Muir’s worldwide Free Fall patent), the new drum winch is suitable for boats up to 12 metres in length requiring a user-friendly drum winch system.

Managing Director John Muir said the new stainless steel Free Fall drum winch was unique as the auto Free Fall, power up / power down combined with manual release Free Fall were standard features.

"And its innovative drum brake prevents over run of the rode on to the drum during Free Fall,” he said.

"With the mechanical design Free Fall, there are no electronic components exposed to sea water that could fail.”

"In summary, it’s anchoring at the flick of a switch made easy, fast and reliable.”

Mr Muir said the winch was designed in answer to specific industry needs.

"We are very pleased with the result that follows an extensive research and development program,” he said.

"The new product range represents the very latest thinking and was the next logical step for us to take in relation to our drum winches.”

All Muir Free Fall drum winches are supplied with circuit breaker, reversing solenoid pack, helm control switch and fascia panels.

They also feature an easy 30 second adjustment from auto Free Fall to manual Free Fall and power up / power down options.
