Easy-To-Assemble Windmill Handles Big And Little Jobs
The Delta Jr. windmill features an 8-ft. rotor with 24 galvanized steel blades. It is direct drive with no transmission. The "delta" blade design gives the mill more torque at lower wind speeds.
It can pump a maximum of about 10 gal. of water per minute or compress 5 cu. ft. of air per minute at 10 psi, depending on wind speed.
The mill comes with a 10-ft. tower that sits on three footings, which anchor it securely to the ground. And once assembled, both towers tilt down to make windmill maintenance easier.
Windmill and basic tower sell for about $2,000, including either a water pump or aeration kit. You can add another water pump or aeration kit for about $290. If you need a taller tower, you can add up to two additional 10-ft. sections to the lattice tower, giving you a 20 or 30-ft. tall tower. These sections are available for about $200 each.
