From our history in the traditional windmill business, we understand that quality matters. The pride of American craftsmanship is evident in the tools passed on to us from the generations past.
We believe strongly in building a product that mirrors that same quality; a product that will stand the test of time. As dealers for The Aermotor Company, the last completely American-made windmill company founded in 1888, we are proud to provide you with the best there is. All of our motors and bearings are made in the United States, and all of our manufacturing takes place in Texas.

Finish Descriptions & Options

 

A brand new, shiny electro-plate galvanized windmill wheel directly from The Aermotor Company. The hub in the center is the modern style in Aermotor red. 

A brand new hot-dip galvanized windmill wheel directly from The Aermotor Company. In contrast to the electroplated fan, this has more of the metallic flake look to it. It is more consistent with the windmill wheels from the early 1900’s. The hub in the center is the modern style in Aermotor red.

 

 

A new windmill wheel or vane that has been distressed / antiqued through our special proprietary process in order to look vintage and weathered. Rust spots can be requested as light, medium, and heavy. Authentic bullet holes are available on request, or you can shoot it yourself if you like. Just like old windmills, each one is unique, no two are the same. 

An actual vintage windmill wheel that has done its time in the pasture. We consider vintage to be anything from the 1920’s up to 1980. From 1888 until 1932, the Aermotor model was the 602 that had “V” arms connecting the fan sails together. From 1933 until today, the arms screw into the hub. This model is known as the 702 & 802. These true vintage wheels may be other windmill brands, such as Dempster, Challenge, Fairbury, Baker-Monitor, Flint & Walling, and many others. There were over 100 windmill companies vying to be the best up until the late 1940’s. Many began manufacturing during the 1940’s to support the war effort, and stopped building windmills altogether. Other than The Aermotor Company, the last surviving windmill company heralding from the late 1800’s was the Dempster Windmill Manufacturing Company, which closed its doors in 2012. Thousands of these windmills decorate the landscape across this country, and in many other parts of the world. 

Painted by hand, or powder-coated. Our standard colors are flat black, gloss black, and statuary bronze. If you would like a different color, perhaps to match the color scheme within your home or business, let us know. This applies to your motor box assembly as well, whether that is an open box design or the closed box design. You can search through our powder-coating color chart here.

The pinnacle of windmill ceiling fans. These windmill wheels are true vintage or antique that can be verified as coming from a particular ranch, homestead, or family. Items included are a certificate of previous ownership, a brief write-up on the history of that specific windmill and its owners, and a framed picture of it while it was still on the tower. These are rare finds. 

For some of our customers, just having the windmill wheel isn’t enough. Many people want the complete look of an old or new windmill. Our vane connection package includes everything you need to hang your vane from your motor assembly, as well as the necessary hardware to further anchor it to your ceiling. When in stock, true vintage vanes can be added to true vintage or replicated vintage wheels. We can also replicate a new vane, or even provide blank vanes for you to put your own family name, ranch name, or business name on. 

 

Windmill companies throughout the years have built much larger diameter windmills than the 6′, 8′, and 10′ listed above. The Aermotor Company still builds 12′, 14′, and 16′ diameter windmills for pumping from greater depths and higher volumes. Up until the 1950’s, they still produced a 20′ diameter windmill. Some of these leviathans can still be found turning out on ranches in West Texas and predominantly New Mexico. As a company, we have not yet sold a 12′ or larger. Keep in mind that a 16′ diameter windmill ceiling fan would be pushing 1500 lbs. 

But there’s a first for everything….

 

Our fans come standard with three drop distances, as outlined in the pricing details above. The fans can be dropped considerably lower with an additional solid steel drop shaft and couplings. The information we need to know is your ceiling height (or the height of the structural medium you’re connecting to, ie. a truss lower than your ceiling height), as well as what depth you want the fan to rest at to the nearest inch. All drop shafts are custom cut to the length you need for your installation. If you need the fan to hang higher than the depths given above, contact us to develop a custom design.
