New AirX 400 Watt Generators $580

I thought some of you would like this info. HomeDepot sells AirX 400 and 900 watt wind generators now the 400watt modle is $587.

I know someone out there will say that is a land base generator but I went to the AirX website and checked the modle numbers and they are the same as the Marine units.

I've had one on a piling on my dock to help with house backup inverter power.
It's been out there in a salt water environment for about ten years.
I did have a corrosion issue with the prop hub and lost blades because of it.
If you use one in a salt environment, be liberal with antisieze and paint protection.
