Sencenbaugh 1000-14 Wind Generator

Here it is - one of the most robust Wind generators to come out of the seventies, and is still running! A smaller version of the Jacobs, but without the blade governors, these passed the big wind tests at the Rocky Flats Test Center in 1977. This particular one was at a Vermont residence for over 30 years when I purchased it. It was restored with new bearings, slip rings, etc but it probably needs a new set of blades, or someone to refurbish the old ones. Three six foot sitka spruce props, 1200 watts peak @12 volts, 290 peak RPM before offset tail vane governor activates, 3 to 1 helical gear transmission, with 3 phase a/c alternator. I have one complete restored unit (with worn blades), and another spare unit for spare parts (but without a tail vane or control panel, but with a set of worn blades). I'm guessing that the generator/gearbox weighs in at around 150 lbs.- half the weight of a Jake (Jacobs). These units are recommended to be used in conjuction with Rohn 25G guy wired towers or Rohn three legged self supporting towers. OK, local pickup would be preferable, but shipping is possible. At $1199, this unit is highly discounted compared to the high RPM low quality wind machines flooding the market these days. The Real Thing! For more information, contact Joe at 831-726-1139 between the hours of 8-9 am or 6-7 pm Pacific Time Thanks!
