We recently relocated a tall 75′ Monitor windmill tower from Janesville, WI 60 miles to Shullsburg, WI. The base of the tower was over 14′ wide so we took the bottom half apart for transport. Once at destination, we re-assembled tower and installed Aermotor style stub tower so the rebuilt B702 Aermotor 10′ head could be installed. With the new stub tower, the tower grew in height to 78′! With only inches to spare, the tall pick had our crane at maximum reach!
We manufacture and install aeration pumps (aerators) onto traditional farm windmills. When used with membrane diffuser(s) and weighted air line, the system can reduce or eliminate algae, add necessary oxygen for fish, keep pond open year-round. Aerator unit develops up to 6cfm and operates at approx 25psi (depending on depth of pond). The system is designed to be operated by old fashioned, farm type windmills*. I can supply complete aeration system for your windmill or I can provide complete package, including; windmill, aerator, diffuser(s), air line, and all fittings. Installation is of course available. This is a very heavy duty rig and will outlast the cheap farm store aerator windmills by many, many years. The system is reliable and requires minimal maintenance.
*Aeration unit works best when used in conjunction with Aermotor brand windmill, 8′ diameter head, model A602 or A702, set on the short stroke (5-3/4″).
This 12′ D702 Aermotor windmill atop 47′ tower pumps constantly to keep a 2 acre pond full. We are using a 2″ open top cylinder set about 200′ down. Mill is on a pretty good hill above all wind obstructions. Does nice job of keeping pond full.
This tall pick was a little tight due to all the overhead wires, trees, new well head, etc., but we got it done!
Completed this rebuild of an Aermotor A702 windmill a few weeks ago just West of Altamont, IL. It was pretty cold but because the ground wasn’t frozen, I used my gin pole to raise the head instead of my crane. No one likes unnecessary ruts in their yard.
