: Almost brand new Lofrans
1200W 12V windlass motor
for a Progress II Windlass
(Part 418a #LWP8251). May also fit other older Lofrans
models (uses a 3 point bolt on configuration).
It has only been in use for 3 months. We installed it because we thought it would help with a breaker tripping issue... It didn't because the actual problem was a corroded bearing. Unfortunately we weren't able to replace the bearing as the rope
drum and locknut had seized up on the shaft and the windlass literally had to be sawed in half to remove it from the boat
. So we're in for a new windlass and you can get a bargain on an almost new motor!
New cost from Lofrans is $1150 USD. We are currently in Darwin, AU. Can ship, but it's a heavy little beast and will probably be expensive. Will also be cruising Indonesia
and SE Asia
in the next 12 months, so could meet up if you're in the area.
