Lewmar HX1 windlass - any experience?

Searched forum and can find no references to this windlass. Going by specs it looks like a good match for my tackle and seems to be better than the "Pro 1000" version as it is IP67 waterproof, Max. Pull: 2348 lbs. Trying to figure out how they do that with an 800 watt motor.

Re: Lewmar HX1 windlass - any experience?

I've never found very many mentions of anyone using that model. But looking at the specs vs the Pro 1000 gives an indication of where the extra pulling power comes from. It's an 800w motor rather than 700w, but the HX1 is rated at a slower line speed, indicating it has lower gearing. Basically, a given size motor can do X amount of work. So it can either pull a little bit of weight quickly, or use lower gearing to pull a lot of weight, but more slowly.
