The package did not come with a packing slip. The plastic envelope on the outside of the box where the slip is often located was empty and it was not inside the box. It was packed well, but the screws were out of the plastic package and were lose within a compartment. The equipment appeared to come from China because of the English and Chinese symbols on the turbine housing. Visually, the equipment looked good with a nice white painted finish. The wind tail rudder was larger than the picture showed and it appeared very effective. I noticed the unit was heavier than I expected, and it had a rugged quality about it.
There were no installation instructions per say, but they did include a "Wind Turbine Guidebook," which covered five of the HYenerty models. Their Turbine Guidebook was photo copied or they ran it off on a printer that was losing ink because the last four pages were poor quality....some of the words were badly faded and it is difficult to read.
What they didn't tell you in the online sales pitch was that they do not warranty the turbine if you install it yourself. In fact, they specify that you should not even purchase it unless you have someone professionally install it for you. And they must approve the installer, which is never stated in their on-line written sales pitch. They include a four page document with all the reasons why they won't give you a warranty, and all the hoops you have to jump through to have them consider replacing a defective unit. The vendor especially insists that you even have to find an installer who must first contact them for approval before purchase and installation.
I read their Wind Turbine Guidebook, and the assembly/installation process is not difficult and its pretty straight forward.
The above configuration lasted for about a year then one day wind speed exceeded 100mph and the windgen overpowered the jury rigged dynamic brake. End result was my charge controller caught on fire, wires burned open at the terminal board and the windgen freewheeled... at 100mph+ it made a reel nice kite as it straightened an 3/8 eyebolt on a guidewire turnbuckle.. last i saw of my pretty little windmill it was headed east..
I decided not to replace the windgen because if windspeed could hit 100mph once it will do it again. If you decide to buy one of these wire it with #6awg and scrap the charge controller that comes with it. run the 3 phase to a shorting contactor that will short the windings for a high wind shutdown, buy a xantrexc60 or similar charge controller and run a dump load of around 2kw. good luck!
about 50 pounds so it wasn't too difficult to mount. It came with a charge controller included which was nice. The controller has it's own dump load and has 3 led lights indicating what it's doing. Later we will add solar panels to the unit. Once the wind picked up the turbine started spinning wonderfully. The output was better than expected and quickly charged 8 12-volt deep cycle batteries. We had the batteries running into an outback off-grid inverter which handled the output of the turbine quite easily. So far I am very pleased with this purchase!
I checked several sites and found this to be the best priced.
I am planing to get another one in about 3 months.
