Ewincher was awarded the 2018 Pittmann Innovation Award for taking the game of electric winch handles to a whole new level of sophistication. With its ergonomic winch-handle shape, the Ewincher allows users to combine manual and electric power for maximum flexibility and efficiency.
With variable speeds ranging between 15 and 140 rpm, and 59 foot-pounds of torque on tap from its efficient brushless motor, the Ewincher can help with everything from trimming headsails, hoisting mainsails and hauling in furling lines to hoisting crew up the mast. It allows users to grind with electric power alone, in either direction on a two-speed winch, or grind both manually and electrically to maximize hauling speed.
The Ewincher weighs less than five pounds, is waterproof and has a removable 25-volt 3,000 mAH battery pack that allows for quick changing of batteries and keeps on grinding when the going gets tough.
