The Minn Kota® DeckHand Anchor Winch - Model DH25 features an innovative stow and deploy switch that's integrated into the base of the unit. The DeckHand's auto-drift feature is designed to stop the unit when anchor touches bottom, release rope when slack in the rope becomes tight and locks the winch in place with the touch of a button. The DeckHand Anchor Winch is prespooled with 60' of 800 lb. test nylon rope and runs on a 12V battery (not included). Maximum anchor weight: 25 lbs. (anchor not included).
Minn Kota® DeckHand Anchor Winch - Model DH25
not bad so far
Just attached this to my new Basstracker Pro Team 175. so far happy with their performance. do take the advice of the other reviewer and remove @ 20 feet of cord from the spool to prevent tangles. found it difficult to mount on the front but eventually worked it out. mounted the 25r model on the rear and am able to control from the front. both are working well and i look forward to years of use.

i have purchased the less exspensive trac mates and there is no comparison. minnkota is the only way to go. minnkotta has a clutch system for deployment of anchor. which means that when you release the anchor and it hits the bottom the line stops. with the trac system it keeps unwinding and if you are not watching it it can birdsnest on you. plus the tracs have problems removing the cover for instalation screws are rusted and strip when you try to remove or you break the cover minn kotta is the only way to go

Suprisingly nice product
I was a little worried about the quality it didn't look as robust as I would like. This is my second year with this product. It gets lots of use on my boat. I use a 20 lb. river anchor and it has operated great. It has great power and torque. Simple to operate. Looking to get one for the back of the boat with remote switch. It has turned me into the lazy fisherman. I never have to get out of my seat. I can't think of any problems I have ever had with this unit.

What type of anchor would I need to use with a 16' boat with mostly sandy bottom shallow lakes? Do you have to stow the anchor once its retrieved? I've seen people use these and once its retrieved they just drive away, yet I didn't see a 'normal' anchor at the end of it.
I have no doubt it will work. It has an automatic stall which senses when the boat is up to the bow stop. You may have to activate the winch several times if the stall switch kicks in, but it is an instant reset and does not slow down the overall function of the unit.
