Well it ain't a vertical axis one and that is for sure.
  Somebody could have a very good installation with that.
  Would be ideal in exposed areas. No worries about storms etc just make sure you have sets of spring to go with it.

The voltmeter seems to show 20, 40, 60 so like Biff says probably 48V.

Aye, it’s a 48v one at an ‘off grid’ scrap yard in Yorkshire, he was trying to sell it a few years ago. I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole. Looks to have the early wooden blades and that particular model of tower was prone to cracking at the base.
