The top end kit has been designed with the 'hard to
please' customers in mind. Using all the best quality
components available we have put together an ideal
wind turbine system. This kit has many refinements
over other kits that make it that little bit more
The wind turbine automatically steers away from
potentially damaging gusts of wind, the charge regulator
can handle a solar panel (additional to the kit)
and can charge two individual battery banks if
required. The battery status is displayed on an LCD
screen to eliminate the guess worked involved in charge
The AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) battery does not give
off potentially dangerous gasses when being charged as
it's completely sealed. Gel batteries are designed for
professional or system critical installations. Higher
number of deep cycles are possible and a > 5 year
The inverter is a pure sinewave type giving clean
power to the user, unlike the modified sinewave
inverters this inverter gives out 'true sinewave'
meaning it can power anything providing the power limits
are not exceeded.
Ideal for a log cabin country retreat where
electricity is required to power home creature comforts!

The Rutland FM910-3 wind turbine can produce up
to 250 Watts and has a diameter of 910mm with 6
blades and a 'tail' specifically designed for
In exceptionally high wind conditions, when the
turbine is producing full power and is being
stressed unnecessarily, the hinged tail causes the
turbine to yaw slightly out of the direct wind. This
slows the turbine, limiting stress, ensuring a
longer life span and safe operation.
The Rutland FM910-3 wind turbine is an ideal
candidate for use on land to provide enough energy
to power a selection of home electrical appliances
and/or a lighting ring.
The Tower Kit has been specifically designed to
support the Rutland 913/FM910-3 turbines and will
stand up to harsh weather as it's made up of
stainless steel that will not rust. It is important
to note that if erected incorrectly it could become
unstable and cause damage.
The tower is made up of three 2.13m poles that
stack together with joining pillars and make up an
overall height of 6.4m. The 48mm diameter steel tube
comes ready drilled for assembly.
The base of the tower can either be spiked into
the ground or for a more permanent solution, can be
mounted in a small amount of concrete as a solid
The Tower Kit must be supported in an upright
position using the Tower Rigging Kit.
The rigging kit comes complete with 8 steel guy
wires (4 long and 4 short), shackles, turnbuckles,
pole attachments, ground fixings for the tower poles
Again, the ground fixings can be mounted in a
concrete block for a more permanent structure.
Please note that it is important to have two to
three people helping as this can be rather
challenging for one person!
Power generated from the Rutland FM910-3 wind
turbine is stored in the AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat)
battery in the form of DC power.
The 135 Ah AGM battery has been recommended as
the ideal storage capacity for the mid range kit.
The speed at which the battery is charged is
purely dependent on wind speed. Working at maximum
output, full battery charge should take a minimum of
5 1/4 hours.
The role of the inverter is to convert stored DC
battery power over into usable 230V AC, 50Hz (mains)
The Cotek inverter allows you to consume up to
1500 watts from the 135 Ah AGM battery to power
electrical equipment or a lighting ring.
The Cotek inverter is also known as a pure
sinewave inverter. A good quality power source which
will run fluorescent lighting and small TVs.
