Anchorlift are sharply priced but don't have some of the fruity bits others have. While the fruit is nice, often it's not needed and just adds cost. Made in Norway
The Anchorlifts do have a very high down speed which can be handy. Don't buy the plastic bodied ones, they are being withdrawn and going to be alloy instead. The others are Stainless, nice. Their Auto rope
chain technology is still a work in progress but coming up to speed quickly. Great for all chain though. Finishing on one or 2 could have been a bit tidier but after 6 months on the deck
you probably wouldn't notice.
In short - Work well, low levels of 'fruity bits', best on all chain, good pricing, not the sexist finish but well worth a suss in our opinion. We do like the 5 year warranty, one of the longest out there. Don't 'undersize'.
Be careful about the rope
and chain kits. We asked them just before Xmas which rope they prefer and were told "we don't usually run them as Auto Rope to Chain. Doing that is peculiar to US and NZ only so we don't really know". We are still not too sure what to make of that. We run a Samson
3 strand on them and they appear to be working very well. Haven't done any big ones as R2C's yet.
Note: They sell the "Shark' anchor
, a Delta
clone. We have put the Shark against the Delta
a few times and the Shark wins easily. If you like Deltas buy a Shark instead, works better and built stronger.
