8 ft USWE

Post by MKinKS »

Hi all,

I’ve got an old windmill to sell in Mission, KS. It’s a USWE and the tower is about 20 feet tall and the fan seems to be 8 feet in diameter. It appears to be in fair condition, minus the rust. The “US” on the tail is still visible and the pump has both the company name and city on it. Fan spins great in the wind with a bit of squeaking.

There is a catch: I don’t have the know-how or the tools to take this thing down. Buyer will be responsible for dismantling and hauling it away. It is in a difficult to reach location that may not even allow for a truck to get next to it. It’s very close to a utility pole/lines as well as our neighbors fencing. The only way I see this coming down is to take it apart piece by piece starting at the top, but if you have a great idea for taking it down a different way feel free to bring that along. Difficulty of removal means that I’m happy to let this go for a very reasonable price if you have a safe plan for taking it down.

If you’re still interested even after all of that, please call/text. I’m also happy to send more photos, videos, or set up a time for anyone local to come and see it. Phone number is 636-288-8620. Listing to be posted in a few other locations as well.

Sure would be interested, but Kansas City too far. For me anyway.
Memory plant.... Change or clean the air filter in your air compressor! Mine runs 1/4 as much, and tools run better.
