The Lofrans Vertical X Range = X1, X2, X3, X3.5, X4 and X5 all feature as standard:

  • Watertight stainless steel ball bearings in the base for maintenance-free, reliable performance
  • Technologically Advanced Clutch Design manufactured from two conical discs fitted onto the main shaft by two flat parallel planes - avoids the use of keys and spreads the load more evenly
  • Factory-fitted sensor in the base together with a magnet in the gypsy enables an external chain counter option.
  • Models X1, X2 and X3 have a rope/chain combination gypsy
  • Independently operated rope drum for warping (with drum only)
  • Manual override - the spring-loaded ratchet fitted in the gearbox has two main functions
    1. enables the windlass to recover the chain and anchor in the event of electrical failure
    2. provides a safety mechanism so that chain jams do not damage the deck
  • Models X2 and X3 are available with Mirror Polished Stainless steel AISI 316L casing as a special order upgrade

X1 - included in the box with the windlass unit: manual winch handle, dual-direction solenoid (= built-in control box), drilling template, fixing screws and a CD manual.
