Jims HT24 Hornet generator converted to the Boast Buster.
Images of the conversion are below
My first windmill was purchased thru e-bay from Hydrogen Appliance.
After the installation of their black carbon blades, I noticed they
lacked in performance and had marginal quality at best. They seemed
to "vibrate" in the wind and did not seem to capture the power of
the wind especially lacking in performance in a low windspeed
I live in Florida where we get typical wind speeds of 5 to 15 mph
most of the year. It is critical for me to maximize my low windspeed
capabilities so I decided to begin a search for a better system or
I enjoyed our phone conversation on the different blades that would
work well with my existing set up. After this discussion, I decided
to purchase the Boast Buster set of blades to put on my split core
HT24 Volt system. It arrived promptly in good condition. The quality
and workmanship in your blades are excellent. It was simple to
assemble and I was up and flying in no time.
Even though I've only had the Boast Buster blades for a short time I
have already seen them start up in a light breeze and perform well.
I have not put a tachometer on them but they appear to start
charging with my current generator at around 200 - 300 RPM. I am now
considering a SC120 generator from Hydrogen Appliance to increase my
low wind performance. They claim a 12 volt charge at 60 RPM and I am
quite curious to see what the Boast Buster will do.
I will let you know what happens next. I might wait a little while
until the severe lightning storms settle down to do this. I also
included pictures of my battery set up, hinge mount pole set up.
Thanks again for your help and information.
