Marlec 913 , 513 seem to attract little criticism but are not cheap.
can anyone recommend a wind turbine in the 100-300 w range ?
Ac or Dc or voltage not important , just a turbine that works !
Appreciate all turbines are site dependent , just want to eliminate the rubbish..........

Hi George,
       The AirX is good but you need the good site.
 There is a Chinese yoke called an Fd200,
  It is a rather primitive looking baby. Heavy duty that can deliver 200watt almost anywhere, usually the prop has to be reduced to  approx 1500mm.
          They are often for sale S/H

Thanks Biff -will look........
Had an airx once , was slow to start up , needed good wind to start blades (cogging) but when running would scream.......
Put bigger blades on it and killed it Sad

We havenít heard from Billy in a while. He bought what was a quiet small turbine for his barge. However I canít find the post. I seem to remember the name being similar to Dzus.
I would think that marine WTs are the type to look at. The AirX was said to scream though.

These are the turbines I used to sell in Greece. The 450 and 750 watt models. Completely quiet and ran trouble free for years.  http://www.swea.nl/

Aye Stann.
       I think Billy,s was LE Turbines or leading edge. Not sure but it was  600watt jobbie and he seemed well pleased with it. I used to scroll through zflezbay looking out for Yengzho Shenhzho 120volt babies and after I has acquired enough spares to keep me going for a good 100 years hysteria, I stopped.
I have a spare 24v x 500watt yang/shen turbine for 350 euros if you are interested George and if not maybe someone else might go for it. It is a very heavy duty lump and suitable for exposed sites no plastic. 40mm shaft, hollow fiber blades, alloy hub. Tail + fin.
      It is very heavy.
       Biff
But to be honest ,, you would nearly be better going for a futurenergy w/t. They have s good name for after sales service. They start about 800watt x 24v.
