WinchRite® ABT by Sailology Cordless Winch Handle
WinchRite® ABT by Sailology Cordless Winch Handle is a light-weight, safe, cordless electric winch handle designed specifically for use on sailboats. A perfect addition to your sailing gear, the WinchRite ABT features an efficient 21.6v Lithium-ion battery, an ergonomic design and comes complete with a holder for when not in use.
The cordless WinchRite features an Advanced Brushless Motor for increased efficiency, greater torque, and less internal heat to give you a more reliable electric winch. The WinchRite was designed with safety in mind, it features an integrated rubber inlay for anti-skid prevention and a weather resistant cover for increased durability and protection. The winch cog contains a unique drive to prevent failure in both rotation directions and will not unthread or snap the retaining screw.
This electric winch handle works on all single and two speed winches where a standard eight-point handle is utilized. It features a chimed soft start speed acceleration and a sealed circuit board. Operate the WinchRite handle at the lowest speed of your winch to ensure maximum pull and lowest battery consumption.

Ratings & Reviews
Winchrite Cordless Winch is ideal for older sailors
by Ted Johnson -
This winch handle has been a godsend for us & it works at least as well as advertised. I'm in my 70's & my wife's in her 60's. I had polio so lack upper body strength. We debated between Power & sail & finally bought a 38' sailboat with in mast furling.
With the electric winch handle we can furl & unfurl both jib and main from the cockpit. We can trim both sails. We can also raise & lower the dinghy using the winches.
After two weeks we're still on the first charge. It has performed flawlessly. The reversing switch is perfect on our 2-speed winches. And the sound prior to starting is clever because it can kick if you're not ready.
Construction is very high quality. Comes with carry case & bracket. Only thing I'd improve is to have it automatically charge while in the cradle. But considering how long the charge lasts it's no big deal.
Sailrite's price is the best I've found.
I have no hesitation recommending this product.

Good product but not so good services.

Item arrived in good time. It works but the trickle charger was left out of the box. Wrote to Sailrite about it. Said they have contacted the manufacturer and I have not heard from them as yet. Something as obvious as this took this long. Just wonder how long if ever a warranty issues will take, if it comes to that.
