Harken 2 Speed Self-Tailing Aluminum winches are designed for sailors who want lightweight, extremely strong winches with plenty of power. These Classic Harken winches compliment the look of their Radial line in smaller sizes with a sandblasted grip. This winch features 17-4PH stainless steel gears for strength and durability.
Two-speed winches enable quick grinding in first gear out of a tack or jibe. When the sheet loads up, the reverse direction gives more power in second gear. Self-tailing winches are ideal for sheets, halyards, and control lines on racing and cruising boats. The self-tailing mechanism means that one crew member can quickly and easily trim or raise sails.
