Welcome to Savwinch Boat Anchor Winches!

Enhance Your Boating Experience with Savwinch’s Fast Fall Unit

What is the Fast Fall Unit?

The Fast Fall Unit is an innovative add-on for conventional electronic drum winches, specifically designed to significantly increase the speed of your anchor drop. This advanced component enables your anchor to drop up to 2.5 times faster than the standard speed, thereby approaching the efficiency of a free fall system. Consequently, this enhancement is particularly beneficial when anchoring in deep waters, high currents, or when frequent anchoring is required. Traditional drum winches often lack the necessary speed for these demanding conditions, making anchor deployment slow and cumbersome.

By optimizing the motor’s speed during the anchor drop and disengaging it during retrieval, the Fast Fall Unit simplifies the anchoring process. This, in turn, allows for precise and rapid anchor deployment, ensuring you hit your mark quickly and easily.

Why Choose Savwinch?

Savwinch’s Fast Fall Unit is a groundbreaking product, exclusively available from Savwinch. No other drum winch manufacturer offers this technology. Additionally, this unique unit uses the motor and gearbox to control the anchor drop speed, thereby preventing overruns and mechanical failures common with other market solutions.

Moreover, compatible with all Savwinch units, the Fast Fall Unit can also be retrofitted to any existing Savwinch drum winch. Our innovation has been recognized with a 2015 Manufacturing and Support Business Award in Victoria, further highlighting our excellence in manufacturing and business operations.
