Please help me Identify this old wind generator

Have a part you can't identify? Did your parts get mixed up in the shop? Curious if that chunk of metal is a part you should keep? Not sure what kind of wind generator you have? Post photos of the mystery object here for the community to help identify.

Please help me Identify this old wind generator

Post by matfox »

Good morning all, i have acquired this beefy looking wind generator. It has no markings on it to tell me what the make or model is, it has aluminium blades that are 1400mm long each and a mechanical variable pitch prop, just wondering if anyone out there can assist as I would like to get it up and working again, thanks in advance, I can supply more pics if required.

I bet Windcharger Mike can help! I'm curious too.
Memory plant.... Change or clean the air filter in your air compressor! Mine runs 1/4 as much, and tools run better.

My guess is Dunlite, an Australian made machine. http://www.pearen.ca/dunlite/2kw/2507-B.pdf

WOW you guys are awesome I cant thank you enough, as in the pics it looks like someone had mounted the engine upside down. Dunlite F55 Wind Turbine 110V 5 Kilowatt I have attached the Manual I found for those interested. Now I can work out were all the bits go, so cool now to build a tower and get her up and operational

My question is Who or what controlled the variable pitch blades?

I have a Quirks Dunlite 32 volt with solid state control , turntable, aluminum blades. and tail, located on the KS / NE state line near Burr Oak, Ks. It has been inside 35 years since I have owned it. I'd have to check on it's wattage. Email for information: windpower4jp@ruraltel.net John Parsons
I have 2 10 kw Jacobs one has upgraded inverter , one blade needs a repair.
Time has used up my productive years-- hurry.
