Premium quality Made in the USA, all aluminum garden windmill. Stainless steel nuts and bolts, Red Vinyl trim on the tail and blade tips. Unique ground anchors that withstand high winds and do not need cement. (in most soils) Will not rust and never needs painting. (the wheel and tail shown is the 22 foot wheel)
This is the next size up of very large all aluminum ornamental garden windmills. This model is twenty two feet high to the top of windmill blades. The windmill base is72"X72" and the wheel is 60 inches. The photos are of the 10 foot model. You can see the 22 foot in the "group" photo. This 22 foot windmill weighs 145 lbs. It is assembled laying down and requires two people to tip it up and place the ground anchors into the four holes dug into the ground. There is a grease zerk in the pivot shaft to grease the ball bearings. There is a plastic hub protector that covers the front mounting nut and grease zerk. The accent trim is red vinyl on the tail and blade tips. The hand made welded aluminum wheel turns smoothly and quietly. The aluminum tail keeps the wheel pointed into the wind. The mast head has a stainless steel shaft so the top can pivot easily. The frame is tubular aluminum and the braces are flat aluminum. These windmills are built to last for many years and only require a little grease twice a year. The manufacturer has an 18 foot windmill outside of his facility that has been up for 14 years and it looks brand new. These windmills are hand made by American craftsmen that specialize in welded aluminum products.
When you look at decorative windmills for your yard or garden the first thing to know is when you see "American Windmill" in the ads or descriptions or printed on the box; this is simply a style and has nothing to do with where the windmill was manufactured. The "American Windmill" is a windmill that has a wheel with blades that face the wind and a tail to keep the wheel pointed into the wind. Almost all of the "American Windmills" that you see on line, in hardware and home improvement stores, as well as in most "big box" stores are cheap Chinese copies of the steel, made in the USA windmills that were manufactured from 1971 up until October 2012 in Iowa. Made in the USA is totally different than "American Style".
Do not be fooled by these cheap imports, they break, the blades fly off in moderate winds and are simply a waste of time and money. Now that the only American manufacturer of the galvanized steel garden windmills has stopped making this quality product the only steel windmills that are being sold are these cheap Chinese copies. There is more information about garden windmills on my blog which can be found with Google. Search for Yard Garden Windmills Blog.
The mini windmills and aluminum garden windmills I carry are all Made in the USA and are quality products that with proper mounting and care will last for many years in all sorts of winds short of tornadoes and hurricanes. The aluminum windmills are a premium, well made product that are a step up from the steel windmills. Unlike the steel windmills the aluminum line will not rust and will never need painting.
The aluminum windmills ship in two packages - one package contains the legs and braces, the second package contains the Wheel, tail and hardware. It takes about two hours to put one together-I have additional guides, photos and tips available to help - you will need two 7/16ths, and a 1 inch wrench, plus a Phillips screwdriver to put this windmill together. It is also helpful if you have a small horizontal / vertical level. You will need to grease the wheel twice a year. White lithium grease is recommended.

WHEN ARE ITEMS SHIPPED
Most orders are processed within 24 hours of receipt of payment. The items that are shipped directly from the manufacturers usually ship within 2-5 business days via UPS Ground after they receive the order. The items that I carry in inventory (smaller items such as the mini windmills) usually ship the next business day after the order is received via USPS Priority. As soon as an item is shipped, either from the manufacturer or directly from here you will receive an email with the tracking information.
The manufacturers are small USA companies so it is possible that during busy times such as Mother's Day, Father's Day and the December Holidays that it may take longer than the normal 2-5 days for them to ship. If you are ordering an item for an event, holiday or gift please order at least 2 weeks ahead of time so you receive the item in time. Overnight and 2 day delivery is very expensive and often difficult to do.
Most items are shipped directly from the manufacturers so local pickup is not possible.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION & TERMS
THIS IS SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
Most of the items I sell and have listed in my eBay store are NEW and MADE in the USA. Made in the USA means the items are fabricated and manufactured in the USA using American raw materials, bolts, nuts, fasteners, bearings and so on. Most of the items I sell are shipped directly from the manufacturers. The items come from small manufacturers who normally ship in 1-3 working days after they receive an order. It is possible that it can take 5-8 working days to ship if the manufacturer has been overloaded with orders.There are times when these small manufacturers get more orders than they can deal with or they run out of stock or get behind in manufacturing and so sometimes an order can take longer than the normal 1-8 days to ship. I email each buyer as to the status of their order, alert buyers if there is a delay and email the tracking information as soon as an item is shipped. Most items are shipped UPS Ground when shipped to the lower 48 states. If you are ordering prior to a holiday please allow ample time for delivery. While it is possible to ship these items quicker ways than UPS ground due to the weight and size this can be very expensive. Christmas, Father's Day and Mother's Day are the busiest times for these items. Try to order at least 2 weeks prior to these holidays to insure delivery prior to the holiday. The manufacturers DO NOT do any sort of special packaging or gift wrapping. It is apparent what is inside the box so if you want these items to be a surprise you will need to make your own arrangements. The windmills and weathervanes have a one year unconditional warranty. (as long as they have been properly mounted) If you have a problem with a product please call or email. It is very helpful if you send photos showing the problem.
