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).

The deck hand has worked OK but I have had some issues with the spool of line. Since there is nothing to distribute the line evenly when you are retrieving your anchor, the line has a tendency to jump off the spool and wrap around the motor shaft tripping the motor out. After tearing it apart 3 times to fix it, I ended up cutting about 15 foot of line off so the spool wasn't so full. Seems to be OK so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stealthman60 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bluesman22 great value
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
