Assembly
One person can complete the windmill assembly, but having a second person will make the process easier and faster. Read all instructions carefully and completely before beginning. Refer to the Parts List on the previous page for reference. Check that all pieces have been included before beginning assembly.

Figure 1 Figure 2

Connect the tail assembly by placing the Tail Support Bars (J) on either side of the Tail (I). Align the pre-drilled holes on all three pieces, and connect with two Brace Bolts (L) and Brace Nuts (M).
Slide the fin of the Wheel Arm (K) between the open ends of the Tail Support Bars (J) and align the pre-drilled holes on all three pieces. Connect with three Brace Bolts (L) and Brace Nuts (M). Use Figure 1 for reference.
Attach the Fan Blades (H) to the Center Wheel (D) with the Fan Blade Bolts (F) and Self-Locking Nuts (G). Each Fan Blade (H) will use three bolts and nuts. The side of the Fan Blades (H) with the black edge should face to the front, and the Fan Blade (H) should be attached behind the blade on the Center Wheel (P). See Figure 2 for reference.

Figure 3 Center Wheel Front

Figure 4 Center Wheel Back

Figure 5 Center Wheel & Cap Front

Connect the Center Wheel Cap (E) to the front of the Center Wheel (D) using three Fan Blade Bolts (F), (the short, wide lip surrounding the hole in the center of the Center Wheel (D) will identify the front side. The back of the Center Wheel (D) has a thinner, taller lip. See Figures 3 & 4.
NOTE: The screw holes in the Center Wheel (D) are threaded, and no nuts are provided to secure the elements together on the backside of the Center Wheel (D). See Figure 5.

NOTE: One person can complete the following steps, but having a second person will make process easier and faster.
Fasten the four Top Legs (R) on the outside of the Mast Head (A), by aligning the pre-drilled holes in each piece and securing with a Brace Screw (L) and Brace Nut (M). See Figure 7. (NOTE: If you would prefer the Top Legs (R) to fit inside the Mast Head (A), additional holes may be drilled in the Top Legs (R) to allow a snug fit.) Do not tighten the nuts at this stage.

Figure 7

Begin assembling the legs and braces of the windmill, by beginning at the bottom, and working toward the top. Locate the four Bottom Legs (T) and the four Bottom Braces (P). Align each end of the Bottom Brace (P) with the predrilled holes on the inside of the Bottom Legs (T), and secure with Brace Bolts (L) and Brace Nuts (M) so that the four Bottom Braces (P) are parallel to the floor. Do not tighten the nuts at this stage.
Repeat the same steps for the middle tier of the windmill. Locate the four Center Legs (R) and the four Middle Braces (O). Align each end of the Middle Braces (O) with the predrilled holes on the inside of the Center Legs (R), and secure with Brace Bolts (L) and Brace Nuts (M) so that the four Middle Braces (O) are parallel to the floor. Do not tighten the nuts at this stage.
Join the Center Leg assembly to the Bottom Leg assembly as see in Figure 8. Join the Top Leg assembly to the Figure 8 top of the Center Legs (S).

Figure 9

Attach the Cross Braces (Q) in an "X" configuration in the middle and top tier as shown in Figure 9. The Cross Braces (Q) will connect with the Legs in the same spots as the Middle Braces (O) and the Bottom Braces (P). You will need to unscrew the Brace Nuts (M) at these joints, slide the Cross Braces (Q) over the Brace Bolts (L) and on top of the Middle Braces (O) or Bottom Braces (P), and re-secure with the Brace Nuts (M), as seen in Figure 10.

Figure 10

Secure the Square Platform (C) by sliding it over the top of the assembled windmill legs and braces. Attach the Square Platform (C) to the four Top Legs (R), with four Brace Bolts (L) and Brace Nuts (M). Securely tighten Bolts and Nuts.

Securely tighten all the Brace Bolts (L) and Brace Nuts (M) on the assembled windmill legs and braces.

Slide the Mast Head Washer (B) onto the post of the Wheel Arm (K) and the guide the post of the Wheel Arm (K) and the complete tail assembly into the hole on the top of the Mast Head (A). Figure 11.

Figure 11

Slide the assembled Center Wheel (D) and Fan Blades (H) onto the post of the Wheel Arm (K).

If the windmill needs to be moved to the installation side, remove the Fan Blade and Tail assembly from the Mast Head (A), and carry the Windmill Leg Assembly separately.

Installation
Choose a flat and level surface that is free from power lines, branches, and other overhanging objects to set up the windmill. Use the Ground Steaks (U) to firmly secure the windmill into the ground. The windmill blades will rotate in the wind as the direction of the wind changes. No additional maintenance or adjustments are required.

KEEP AWAY FROM ELECTRICAL POWER LINES. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. THIS IS NOT A TOY. DO NOT CLIMB ON THE WINDMILL.
