18 Foot Aluminum Windmill
This is a Large Aluminum Windmill, 18 ft high to the top of the wheel. All Aluminum with stainless steel bolts and nuts. Never needs painting, will not rust. The blade tips and tail accents are heavy duty outdoor vinyl professionally applied to the wheel and tail tips - with your choice of two colors red or green with yellow pin stripes. Unique ground Anchors to secure the windmill - normally without cement so it can a permanently withstand high winds. The windmill base is 54" X54". The 48 inch wheel has permanently lubed bearing that never needs greased and a hub protector. The top is supported by a mast head with a pillow ball bearing and also by a stabilizer mounted lower on the tower that also has a pillow ball bearing. This windmill ships in two packages - This windmill is shipped by freight (FOB) directly from the manufacturer in 2-4 days after your order is processed. There are additional photos and assembly tips HERE on my windmill blog site. Shipping is by Freight and IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE. Shipping is for the Continental United States Only - It is possible to ship these to Alaska and Canada by common carrier please phone or contact me if you need more information. These windmills can be assembled and put in place by four people - you do not need a crane or lift. These have ground anchors so cement is NOT needed or recommended. The windmill frames are more than strong enough to support an extension ladder to climb up to the top.
Almost all of the decorative windmills available are made of poor quality Chinese steel - and are made in China - they all rust and need to be constantly repainted - plus many of the cheap decorative windmills are so poorly made that they fall apart in just a few months. There was at one time an 8 foot steel garden windmill that was made in Iowa that held up well however that manufacturer went out of business a few years back and so these popular American made ornamental windmills are no longer available anywhere nor are there parts available anywhere for them.
These premium quality aluminum windmills are Amish hand crafted and made in the the USA. They are made to be able to withstand all types of weather and wind conditions. They last for years and remain looking like brand new. I have carried this line of aluminum windmills for more than ten years and very rarely are there any customer complaints and even rarer have there been any failures. They simply are a very well made garden windmill - the wheel and tail are designed so that the wheel will not over-speed during high winds. Here is more information about these aluminum windmills and the manufacturer.
The two wheels and tails pictured are just to show the vinyl trim colors and are not from this 18 foot windmill.
