I have the 500 on my 8000 lb J/28. Works as advertised. Double check the chain/line specs meet your needs, they are specific to the windlass. For example, I think the 500 requires 1/4 chain and 1/2 line. I would have preferred to upsize one size.
There is a maintenace item, a plastic pressure arm. Haven't replaced it yet, after 3 seasons. Other required maintance is straightforward, cleaning & greasing.
