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 special!
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 status.
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 expected life.
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 land-based systems.
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
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
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
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 and
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
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.
