Re: Wind generator
Yup , I sure am the vender who designed and makes the generator for BOTC
we have over 3000 units out in the GOM with no failures
comparing products side by side , BOTC is a great product and it is made for specifically harsh marine enviroments.
if anyone has any questions they should contact me at anytime
Having been to the actual production facility that makes products for Sunforce. It is a good product , they are made at the same factory as Coleman products in south China ,and they have a good warrenty and product information , knowledgeable staff and phone support from the Canadian Sunforce office.Sunforce makes a good product and they are a respected company.
The Main bearing is a basic non sheilded bearing and inner lubricate used is basic CPC products .For off the grid usage with low humidity and limited enviromental salt and water contact such as a Ranch , cabin or farm it is a great product.The 600 w unit is a large unit for a Sailboat under 50ft set
with a combination of panels it should do everything needed to get done
