The RS2000 is renowned by boatbuilders and sailors alike as being a reliable manual reefing system, distinguished by a high degree of functionality and exceptional design.

All components used in the construction of the drum axle, drum guard and toggle are stainless steel, with the high-strength bronze length adjuster and stable plastic drum, result in a smooth operating, compact and durable system.

Available in five system sizes designed for yachts from 10m to 30m and represents the third generation of Reckmann manual furling systems. Its one-piece aluminium foil sections feature higher torsion resistance with a weight saving of 25% over previous versions.

Due to their special construction, all systems in this series are corrosion resistant, virtually maintenance free and easy to disassemble.

With the electric EF 90 reefing systems, trend-setting design and peak efficiency are combined in an overall high-capacity system.

They are designed for yachts of approx. 36-70 foot in length and for wire forestays from 8 to 16 mm in diameter (alternatively rods -12 to -76).

A newly developed gear technology and sophisticated bearing technology lend the smooth running EF 90 an unprecedented functionality. The self-braking worm gear is nearly maintenance free.

Comforting to know that in emergency situations it is easy to switch over to manual operation. In order to guarantee secure and simple operation, loads from the sail are completely absorbed and hence cannot affect the winch handle.

The integrated length adjustment is likewise easy to operate and works even with tacked sail.

Because of the high furling speed, even large sails can be furled very fast

The custom deck spacer ring allows a deck thickness up to 62 mm

The furler is protected against corrosion and can be mounted in the anchor locker

Reckmann offers a range of stay connectors.

The RF90 is a hydraulic high performance reefing system for headsails built to be virtually maintenance free and with superior gear technology these systems offer maximum performance and longevity.

The integration of spiral-mesh gearing, sophisticated bearing design and a self-braking worm gear, result in a quiet and smooth running system, which meet the highest industry standards.

A special emergency manual drive fitted to the RF 90 offers complete safety to the user. Through the simple insertion of a standard winch handle the hydraulic drive is uncoupled and switched to manual operation. Thanks to a special gear mechanism, which prevents transfer of the sail load to the winch handle, the reefing system can be operated easily and safely even in manual operation mode.

All systems in this series are equipped with an easy to operate length adjuster for optimal trimming of mast and sail.

The hydraulic supported length adjusters are available starting with model RF90-4.

Carbon foil option is also available.

All powerpacks
Power pack size 2 is a small, powerful hydraulic unit with an anodised aluminium reservoir. By using anodised aluminium throughout we have achieved maximum corrosion resistance and a weight of only 48 kg (106 lbs) with five functions.

The unit is suitable for controlling roller furlers, mast furling systems, foot outhauls, hydraulic winches from various manufacturers (e.g. LEWMAR up to 54 HST) and many different kinds of ramps, doors and platforms. Note however that this unit is not suitable for powering larger winches. In this case please select a more powerful unit from the Reckmann range (e.g. power pack size 3).

The standard version provides control for 5 functions, which can be extended to 10 functions if required. The unit is supplied fully wired to an electrical control box (circuit board) and can thus be controlled via simple push buttons.


POWERPACK III
PP3_01

All powerpacks
Power pack size 3, in contrast to size 2 unit is equipped with a twin pump system and can supply twice the volume flow within the 100 bar pressure range. Hence this power pack is a very powerful yet compact unit. By using anodised aluminium throughout we have achieved maximum corrosion resistance and a weight of only 55 kg (121 lbs.) with up to ten functions.

The unit is suitable for controlling up ten applications e.g. roller furlers, mast furling systems, foot outhauls, hydraulic winches by LEWMAR up to 88 HST, hydraulic winches by ANDERSEN up to 68 STH, windlasses and a wide variety of ramps, doors and platforms. If you don't find your desired application in this list, please ask us.
