“The First 316 Stainless Steel Marine Gearbox on a Drum Anchor Winch in Australia”
Don’t be fooled by the name “MICRO” or by its size, this is one of the most powerful electric drum winch for its size and was designed to fit into bow riders, tinnies, walkarounds, bass boats and any boat with restricted anchor well space or even none at all.
When it comes to speed the Viper Micro is no sloth, it still houses the famous Viper 1000W electric motor (hand polished 316 stainless steel) and rotates its drum at speeds of up to 45mtrs per minute (fall rate) ensuring you get onto your GPS mark each and every time!
Now includes an Emergency Manual Release Safety Feature.
This feature enables you to deploy your anchor if your boat has lost all power and is heading for a cliff, sandbank or a bar crossing, you can lower your anchor without power.
Making sure you can safely anchor your boat avoiding dangerous drifting into a hazardous location. The winch will allow the anchor to release to the seabed.
Once the anchor is on the bottom, tie your rope to a bollard to be safely anchored. Then you can call the coast guard or your local emergency marine service.
With unsurpassed Viper reliability, it has more torque than a conventional drum winch, 3 support bearings hugging a 1 piece solid shaft and a 90 degree welded housing bracket which closes up the gap between your drum (preventing rope jams) and does not require any additional guards.
Constructed from 8mm plate 316 marine grade stainless steel (hand polished to a mirror finish) & comes std with a bullet proof 5 YEAR Viper performance warranty, you can’t go past a Viper.
Now supplied with everything you need to install it, including a 5mm stainless steel sandwich plate, all required stainless steel bolts/screws/nylocs/washers, 2 face plates depending on your dash space and even your rope chain and even swivel are included.
