Plow Anchor is also known as CQR Anchor or Plough Anchor. It is named due to its obvious resemblance to the farming implement. Our plow anchor is constructed of high-grade carbon steel and stainless steel 316L for extra strength and durability. Weight ranges from 7kg to 318kg. The anchors have been hot-dipped galvanized for maximum corrosion protection. We can also provide customization solutions according to customer needs.

The plow anchor is a rod anchor with a fixed anchor pawl, a single pawl, and its rod is located at the upper part of the anchor shank, shorter. It also features a quick-setting geometric design that provides stability and great holding power regardless of the bottom condition.

Plow anchor is welded by steel pipe and sheet, and used for small barges and other ships in the inland river. It works well in a variety of seabeds including sand, clay, and firm mud. They also perform better than most anchors in grassy and rocky conditions.
