    I can see I already dont like these blades. The base is half as wide as the 10.6's I used on the geared version and these start to turn in over 10 mph winds.The 10.6's will start in 6-7 mph.. Oh well they are there to stay as the hub and shaft are married for life..I am going to do the 10.6 's on a direct drive unit next.Then I will go back to geared units..Doing testing for my data.

    what turbine are these blades on ?

    I know you have solid base tower, so how do you get everything put in place on the top of your tower ?
