Default Old Farm Style Water Pumping Windmill and Hand Pump systems

American Windmills is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and sale of the Old Farm Style Water Pumping Windmill and Hand Pump systems. We specialize in the AERMOTOR Windmills with a rebuilt motor that has oil seals and roller bearings. THIS Aermotor windmill is the BEST motor you will find on the market.

Welcome to the official web site of Aermotor Windmill Company, Inc., where innovative engineering and 118 years of experience set the standard. We manufacture the best windmill, at the best price, made in the USA.

How wind power works

Wind turbines capture the wind's kinetic energy to power a generator that produces electricity. Wind generators have four main parts: blades (also known as rotors), a power shaft, gears and a generator. The wind drives the blades, which turns the shaft, which powers the generator and electricity is produced.

Consumers can purchase wind units for home use. There are medium-size units that can fulfill all of the electric needs of a home, or smaller units that can be used as a supplemental power supply. A wind system typically lowers a home's electric bill by 50-90% depending on the size of the system and the wind patterns of the site.

Wind power systems are most practical in rural areas or for consumers with an acre or more of land. But check with your neighbors and local zoning laws – you may be able to set up a small system in a suburban area.

Depending on the size of your site and your energy consumption patterns, you’ll likely need a turbine rated in the 5-15 kilowatt range to make an impact on your energy needs.

Here is the other half of the system.


This link is for Doodah..

But don't forget the REAL reason those towers
are there...

In order to keep us in line, my Mother used to tell us that those big water towers were prisons for small children. I would always hide in the back seat when we passed them on roadtrips.
