Re: FourWinds II wind generator

Hi Will
I have had a great deal of interest in the wind generator and will put you in line if the others fall through. I wish I had more.

Re: FourWinds II wind generator

Make sure you send him the slip rings and the 2 rings that keep the FourWindsII on the pole. The FourWinds site is offline and Paul's email doesn't seem to be working. These parts (especially the slip ring) are essential and not easily made.

Regards,
Brad

Re: FourWinds II wind generator

I cant believe you're selling this for 125. It cost me 1900$ for new unit + regulator back in 2006. It would be nice to hear if the new owner encountered any problems with it.

Re: FourWinds II wind generator

It was on the boat when I bought it and has performed flawlessly for 10 years. I have many items for sale all at low prices, maybe there are bargains to be had after all , I am happy and the new owner is happy, what more can I say
