I recently purchased a Silent Wind gen
from Spreco. Wish I could give you a first-hand review, but it's still in the box, and won't be installed for a couple more months at least (all the water
is too hard up here right now). I can tell you build quality seems excellent, but that's all I know for sure.
I did spend some months researching, reading reviews
and getting personal feedback before settling on this option. I was looking for something that:
- Is rated a good performer, particularly at lower wind speeds.
- Is "quiet", although that seems to be a highly subjective factor.
- Good build quality.
- Not too heavy (our generator
is sitting out on our boomkin)
- Ease of installation
I would probably have gone with a D400, but it too heavy for our setup. I also seriously considered the Airmaax, but when I attempted to get more info from the company I was met with no response. Too bad, b/c they look good.
Anyway, I believe we've made a good choice. I plan to write a full report back here after we've had it whirring away for a few months.
