Missouri Wind And Solor wind generators
« on: June 21, 2012, 10:33:39 AM »
i bought a 1600watt wind generator from these guys as a replacement of my 10'hugh piggot design.[big disapointment]
it was a 1600watt 24v version. i have never seen more than 7amps out of it in a 30plus mile an hr wind.
it would take 4 of these so called 1600watt units to equal my 1000watt home made one.
they do sell solor pannels that are reasonable priced. though.
 
i talked to dan and the waiting list was to long for the insurance company. i was going to just buy another 10'er from forcefield.

should have put the insurance company off in order to get a real machine.

live and learn   and  dont be in a hurry!!

I tried a set of their Mach 5 blades. From my observations they don't end up making as much power as my DIY three blade set. The Mach 5's spin up in lower winds than my DIY blades but seem to stall as they get the RPMs up enough to start charging. My peak wattage so far with the Mach 5's is 2/3 of the peak power I've pulled with my blades. Which is a whopping 100 watts for the Mach 5's and 150 for mine. :) Help, help! I need a dump load QUICK! :0

Getter,

I was making a joke about the puny size of my windmill. I have a 1200 aH bank and so my mill could put out it's max even if the batteries were at full charge and not harm the bank.

Maybe I should have skipped the joke and just said I'm not impressed with the blades.

If someone has a report here there is probably something wrong. Note the electrician in New York reporting his 300 watt AirX does better than a "1600 watt" MWS mill on the same tower.

frankly their crap is a joke just look at their product most looks like a fan off an engine glued to a truck alt. if people had bothered to look at the real turbines they'd quickly see how bad they are.

Sad they keep geting away with it.

The reason they "get away with it" is because those little car alternator wind turbines are incredibly popular with hobbyists.  Hobbyists don't necessarily need a "real" wind turbine - they just want one that goes around and puts out a few amps now and then.

There has been some off-gridders I know who have bought them that are happy with them.  And others that complain that they don't produce any power.  I think the difference is that the ones that are happy with them have decent wind sites and have them on a tower that is in a decent location.  Most of these little things are put on a piece of pipe on the end of the house, or sometimes on the roof.  They aren't going to produce anything there, just like any other wind turbine won't.  But put it on a 90 foot tower, like I know one guy that has one has, and the turbine actually works.
