Chain Gypsy Launched

A hydraulic Chain Gypsy has been added to our range of hydraulic winches and equipment. 

Designed to simplify the lowering of an anchor chain into a locker, the new mild steel Chain Gypsy is designed for a 14mm chain but can be specified with a drum to suit any size of anchor chain.

The unit features a devils claw and a manual brake with an emergency release and is suitable for a variety of fishing and fish farming applications.

The Chain Gypsy joins our extensive range of winches and other hydraulic equipment suitable for potting, beaming, scalloping, trawling or mid water fishing, examples of which will be on display at the exhibitions we are attending this year.
