Parts and Wiring Kits

Gain your independence from the utility companies! Wind power makes a wonderful combination with solar or can be used as a sole power sorce if you live in a good wind area. Wind can be used as "back up" power in the event of a power outage; is an economical and excellent source of electricity if you live outside of the power grid and is environmentally sensitive. Install just one system to use as a back up power source or several and power your entire house! It is much easier and cost efficient to set up several of these 600 watt systems than a 3-5,000 watt generator if you want to power your entire home. We had one man tell us that he had his systems all set up and the utility meter reader came by to do a meter reading. He looked all around and could not find a meter. He asked where it was and when the home owner pointed to his wind generators the meter reader just drove away shaking his head. This was a magic
moment for that home owner and he was hooked on producing his own power.
Let us help you gain your independence from the utility companies! Wind power is also great for preparedness. An outstanding resource for your freezer in the event of power outages, the ability to run lighting and small appliances and the best part is NO utility bills to mail to the electric company!

Mikes Windmill Shop - About Us

About Us

Wind Generators Starting from just $450!

Hi, I'm Mike. Our shop evolved from necessity in our having spent many years developing our love of wind power. One day I had to climb a tower in over 80 MPH winds to tie down a wind generator to make sure it would stay out of the winds in order to protect it from damage. I decided that enough was enough designed the Mallard 600D in order to be able to safely pull our generators out of the wind from the safety of the ground during periods of damaging winds. In addition, I also designed a tower that can be raised and lower by use of a winch so that when service was desired one would not have to climb up the tower for maintenance. The result brought about our Mallard Systems utilizing strong metals and heavy duty frames which withstand the elements.

About Pay Pal

Our heavy duty frames on the Mallard 600D System and the ability to be turned out of the wind by using a pole to pull the rings and release the tail offers convenience and safety making this system very simple to pull out of service if necessary. We have designed the high quality 600E for the economy minded. Although the frame is not as heavy duty as our deluxe model, it is still very sturdy. We're very excited to offer you the opportunity to use wind power to improve your life.

PLANS NOW AVAILABLE
Build an Easy to use tilt up wind generator
tower
With these plans you can build a tower for your wind generator that will allow you to easily raise and lower the pole for installation and maintenance. This tower uses a winch to do all the heavy work for you. No trying to lift the pole and hoping that it doesn't fall before getting it in to place. No more hurting your back to put up your wind generator. You do not need to have anyone come help you to raise your tower because it can be done with only one person. We give detailed instructions on how to use materials available at most hardware stores, fencing supply companies and local metal yards, to build this tower. We do have anchor kits and winches available for purchase. The instructions come with several pages of detailed diagrams, materials list, and instructions. Also if you have any questions you can e-mail for more instructions. Instructions are for a 20 foot tower using a 1 1/2" (1 7/8"outside diameter) schedule 40 pipe but you can change the dimensions if you need it to be taller. If you need to use a 2" pipe it would be very simple for you to change the dimensions of the tower by simply placing the two side pieces a little further apart. It will fit many different brands of wind generators. It is designed for 6' or smaller wind genrator. If you are going with a bigger wind generator you would need to use larger pipe. We used to sell these towers but the shipping cost has gone too high so we decided to write out the instructions so that you can build them yourself. Order today and First Class shipping is free in the US. If you need shipping outside of the US please e-mail for shipping cost.

Charge Regulators/ Controllers
Our wind generators are made with unregulated power so that there are not computer parts that can easily break down. We offer charge regulators that can be used with up to 5 wind generators to regulate the power in the batteries. Our charge regulators are made to regulate right at the battery pack, not at the generator. Because they work with the battery they can regulate up to five 600 watt wind generators at the same time or they can be used with a combination of wind and solar power. There is no need to purchase a seperate regulator/controller for every wind generator and every solar panel. We also offer a charge regulator for use with a single 600 watt wind generator if you are using only one for back up power.

Light boards to use as diversion load

You will need to make a diversion load to draw power when the regulator recognizes that the batteries are filling with too much power. We have instructions here that will show you how to build a light bar to use as a diversion load or you can purchase one from us that is already assembled and ready to go. You will need to use either 12 volt or 24 volt bulbs.
Light bar with 5 light kits, each capable of holding 2 bulbs. Bulbs sold seperately. $75 plus shipping
12 volt 50 watt bulbs $40/pack of 10 plus shipping 24 volt 50 watt bulbs $80/pack of 10 plus shipping
These 12 volt and 24 volt light bulbs are for use in the diversion load light boards. They are not an efficient way to get lighting for your home. For home use an inverter and use florescent bulbs.
To make a light bar to use as a diversion load for the charge regulator start out with 5 round plastic electrical boxes and screw them in to a board. We use a board that is 1"x8"x4'.

Light board for use with 10 bulbs
$75.00 Shipping in the lower 48

Next you will run 10 gauge or larger electrical wire through the boxes. Wire the red positive wires to each other and run the black negative wires

to each other. Do this between each box.

The next step is to attatch your lights. Use wire nuts and wire the white wire from the light to the positive, red wire in the box. The black wire will be fastened to the black wire. We use a simple overhead bedroom ceiling light that will take two bulbs.
Next fasten down the light fixture to the box.
Do this with each light. Touch the wires to a battery to make sure that you have everything wired and working correctly. If you are using 12volt batteries you need 12volt light bulbs. If you are using a 24 volt system you will need 24 volt light bulbs. Now you are ready to hook the light board to your charge regulator. We provide instructions for our regulators.

ground. These blades have been tested at over 100 mile an hour winds but as with any wind generator when there are extreme winds it is best to turn it out of the wind. We offer a simple wire tension design to eliminate the need for slip rings and this makes the Mallard 800D more reliable. This method has been used for many years with no problems detected. Unregulated D/C voltage for more reliability and power. If the batteries get too full, simply flip on some light switches or hook a switch to bypass to heater or another load. Or, you can very simply flip the tail out of the wind right from the ground. This system is a 59" diameter generator. Included are 6 carbon fiber blades, hubs, frame, permanent magnet alternator and tail. System does NOT include tower, wires or batteries. All parts are new with the alternators made from remanufactured GM alternators with new professionally wound stators that are specifically wound for wind generators. Also included are new bearings and a very powerful mass neodymium magnet. As the bearings break-in, the system requires lower winds to engage. This is a very economic, high quality system at a low price. Available in 12volt, 12/24volt, or 24/48volt. Please specify which voltage you want. 12 volt is an ideal system for people who live in high wind areas. 12/24volt and 24/48volt systems are great for those with low to average wind speeds.
As with any wind generator take ALL safety precautions. Only work on putting up your wind generator during low or no winds. Use at your own risk.
