Hello, Iíve been wondering if its normal for my windlass gearbox
to get warm after pulling up 250 foot of chain with 50 foot of rode
Iím sure within reason it is. But yesterday at the dock
. I dumped all my chain and rode
450 foot inspected it and pulled it back on with the windlass
. The windlass gearbox
was warm and somewhat hot. I could hold my hand on it as it wasnít to hot.
The electric motor
does not get hot at all. I donít even notice a temperature change with it while I use the windlass.
Iím just wondering if any other quick windlass owners experience the same thing? I donít think thereís a problem, but it would ease my mind knowing that itís normal to be warm after operating.
Quick Windlass Model Aleph - AL1012D 1,000 watt - 55 LBS Rocna
Vulcan - 250 foot 3/8th chain - 200 foot of 5/8th rode
Thank you - Sam
