Fantastic

I was a little worried about the 115 degree heat in Las Vegas NV. This unit preformed flawlessly, even in the thunder storms we get here in July & August.

HIGH VIBRATION AND WARBLING RIGHT AWAY. TIGHTENED ALL SCREWS. WITH ANY WIND THE WELDING ON THE BLADE RING CAME APART AND DESTROYED ITSELF. THE BLADE ASSEMBLY IS NO LONGER ANY GOOD. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. IT'S A WINDMILL, DUH, SUPPOSE TO LAST IN THE WIND, NOT DESTROY ITSELF.

    Comments about SMV American Ornamental Windmill:

    I am happy with the purchase of this wind mill, I enjoy it very much in my backyard it reminds me the town where I was born because it was full of wind mills used to pump water into our homes, this is one of the reasons that I purchase this one.

    Comments about SMV American Ornamental Windmill:

    So the hardware that comes with the kit is cheap. While at Ace and picking up the windmill, walk over to the fastener isle and buy a box of 10-32 .75 to 1.0 in bolts and nylock nuts with plenty of lock washers. About $12 extra dollars to the budget. Go slow during assembly, more difficult w one person, a couple neighbors holding beers will be helpful at critical moments. Little axle grease on the bearing and washers and it's done. The wife loves it, the neighbors love it, it's solid and works well, just upgrade the fasteners and life will be good.

      I really liked assembling this with the help of my four year old granddaughter. After reading other reviews, I spent about 3 bucks for nylock nuts. It looks great in our garden. We like it a lot!

        Bought this windmill as a gift for my dad. Don't waste your time trying to use the screws provided with the windmill because they strip easily. Once upgraded bolts were purchased, the windmill was easy to assemble, appears to be sturdy, and looks great!

          Very Poor Quality

          • Always tightening bolts
          • Blows over easily

          • Stakes aren't long enough

          Best Uses

          • Someplace without wind

          Comments about SMV American Ornamental Windmill:

          Great to watch but within days it started vibrating apart. The first wind we had it fell over even though we had it staked down. Bent 3 fins. We've welded back together but now it isn't as quiet and it still vibrates apart. Poor quality. I'd suggest putting it someplace that is protected from the wind. If not, don't waste your money. We've only had this windmill for 2 weeks.

              This windmill has been providing me enjoyment for over 15 years. It is so well made that it turns in the slightest wind - maybe less than 2 mph. It is durable and with stands the rains of Seattle - and sometimes a bit of snow. It is excellent craftmanship -[...]

              Comments about SMV American Ornamental Windmill:

              We bought one of these 8 years ago. The windmill never stops entertaining us. Through out the blustery winter storms or the gentle delta breezes. It still works as good as the day we bought it. Highly recommend it for those who like to sit in the backyard and figure out where the wind is blowing and how fast.
