Part 1- How to Lower a Small Wind Turbine Tower

12 May , 2014  

lower-a-wt-thumbThis video will show how to lower a small, 30′ tall, wind turbine tower to the ground, without using a motor or winch. You shouldn’t have to do this too often, but, it’s a good idea to check the structure and wind turbine for maintenance.
This particular tower was made from 3/4″ plumbing pipe and has worked great for about 4 years. I have come up with a system of using a pulley in a tree and a heavy counterweight. It makes it possible for one person to do it quite easily.
A big thanks goes to my 10-year-old son for giving his Dad a hand.
