Andersen has improved their excellent stainless winches by adding a variable speed compact motor. Available in two versions; with the motor mounted below deck with smaller dimensions than the standard motor, and above deck with the motor directly below the winch. The motor is an all-in-one design, with no extra control boxes, and only three wires to attach, resulting in the smallest possible footprint. It uses no carbon brushes, virtually eliminating wear.
