The Lofrans X3 windlass has a vertical drive shaft for the gypsy which results in a compact deck unit with the motor and gear box housed under the deck in the chain locker.

Lofrans X3 Main Features and Plus Factors:

  • Mirror polished, extremely weather resistant chrome finish on drop forged bronze
  • Special watertight stainless steel ball bearings in the base
  • Low profile or with drum option
  • Independently operated rope drum - extremely useful for warping applications
  • Rope and chain combination gypsy 
  • Manual chain release
  • Manual override on chromed bronze models only, not on aluminium models
  • Gypsy connection control - the spring-loaded finger applies pressure to the rope and chain which keeps the warp firmly connected to the gypsy
  • Chain counter magnet pre-installed as standard
  • Lofrans-engineered heavy duty IP67 rated electric motor, 12V or 24V, 1500W or 1700W 
  • Corrosion resistant, anodised aluminium alloy gearbox casing
  • Motor and gearbox connected by a special socket type coupling for easier access and maintenance
  • 3 year Manufacturer Warranty
  • Control Box included (Dual Direction Solenoid)
  • Design requirement - minimum 300mm depth between under side of the deck and the top of any stowed chain

Gypsy Capacity:
8mm chain = 14mm 3 strand rope
10mm chain = 16mm 3 strand rope
12mm / 13mm chain = 18mm 3 strand rope

The 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
  • Clever Clutch Design manufactured from two conical discs fitted on to the main shaft by two flat parallel planes which 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 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
  • Project X2 and X3 are available with Mirror Polished Stainless steel AISI 316L casing as a special order upgrade

X3 included in the box with the windlass unit: manual winch handle, dual direction solenoid (= control box), drilling template, fixing screws and a CD manual

Not included in the box: circuit breaker, switches or chain counters

The Lofrans X3 is available in many different variations, listed below.
