Hello, I am after a proven 6kW head and tower if anyone has one for sale, UK wide, ideally in the south west. 

Thank you

Yes, I was able to help Jonathan in this case.

We can both attest that taking apart a 2 section 10m Proven tower is not the easiest thing to do, but is a long way from impossible.

Ted,
I'm actually looking for the top piece of a hutchinson tower. It is the top section with the spigot that the turbine mounts to. Only 1.5/2m long. I think it is unlikely that I can source one so will probably have to make one. If anyone has a spare 6kw tower from any of the manufacturers (even if damaged) it would be very useful.


Regards,
Justin
