The complete windmills, measured from the top of the fan to the bottom of the stand, are approximately 8, 11, 15, and 20 feet tall.
These are approximate dimensions:
Windmill Head — Fan Diameter
8 — 30 inches
11 — 40 inches
15 — 47 inches
20 — 60 inches
Rustic Fan — Fan Diameter
8 — 30 inches
11 — 38 inches
15 — 47 inches
20 — 60 inches
Windmill — Footprint
8 — 32 x 32 inches
11 — 44 x 44 inches
15 — 50 x 50 inches
20 — 62 x 62 inches
We build our 8, 11, 15, and 20 windmill stands and water towers with treated yellow pine. Our windmill heads have been used on cedar stands, painted wood stands, and metal stands, just to name a few.
The wagons are also built with treated yellow pine.
The fan blades, wire ring, and rudder are made from galvanized steel. All other head components are made from steel and painted black.
The 8, 11, and 15 windmill heads use a durable hub with sealed bearings that do not need greasing.
The 20 windmill head uses a heavy duty hub/bearing assembly, and is greased through the spindle and packs both the front and rear bearings simultaneously. The dust cap has a rubber plug that can be easily removed to repack the bearings, we recommend once a year. The same hub/bearing assembly is used at the pivot point where the vertical and horizontal shafts meet.
The windmill heads do not have a brake, but the 20 windmill head has a break in the horizontal shaft allowing it to be rotated 90 degrees parallel to the ground. This causes the rudder to prevent the fan from facing directly into the wind.
The fan blades have red vinyl tips. The rudder can be plain (galvanized steel), or can have a vinyl state flag of Texas for no additional charge.
No. If you would like a custom rudder, we recommend purchasing the head with the plain (galvanized steel) rudder, and then taking the rudder to a local paint or vinyl shop for customization.
For windmill heads that are shipped, assembly is required. No additional welding or drilling on any of the head components is required. The tools required for the head assembly are a Phillips screwdriver and pliers. For the 20 windmill head, a rubber mallet and grease gun are also required.
The cheap garden windmills cannot be compared to our high quality windmills. Our windmills are made of heavy duty components and are built to last in an outdoor environment.
Yes, the fan turns and the head pivots when the wind blows.
These windmills are decorative only, and are not designed to pump anything. Any modifications to the originally manufactured head components will void the one-year warranty.

Yes, the windmill head includes easy to follow step-by-step instructions for building the wood stand yourself. Included in these instructions are tool requirements, lumber requirements, and templates which can be used to make sure the angles are cut properly.
We recommend driving rebar through holes drilled in each leg at a diagonal near the base of the stand. Additionally, you can drive an auger into the ground below the center of the stand, and connect a steel cable to the auger and to the top of the stand, placing a turn buckle in the middle so that the cable can be tightened.
