- High-grade billet aluminum
- For use with synthetic rope
- Designed for heavy duty winching
- Replaces traditional roller fairleads
Driver Recovery Products' premium hawse can be used as a replacement for traditional roller fairleads. It is less likely to pinch and is designed with a flatter profile. This hawse is made of high-grade billet aluminum, and is suited for use with synthetic winch ropes. Weather-resistant aluminum wont develop surface imperfections such as rust that can fray rope. A polished smooth mouth opening minimizes friction to protect the synthetic rope. The hawse's wide mouth simplifies rope rewinding, even around the drum's edges. It comes pre-drilled and recessed to accept mounting hardware (not included), and mounts using the standard 10" (on center) bolt pattern. It is designed heavy duty winching; maximum capacity, of course, depends on pulling angle and other factors. The hawse measures 11-11/16" wide, 2-11/16" tall, and 3/4" thick with a 7-3/8" x 7/8" opening. It is compatible with most winches and synthetic rope, although it's not designed to be used with steel wire rope.
