Windmill Head Rocking

Windmill Head Rocking

Why does my windmill head rock back and forth?

Usually, this happens when you have low wind speeds or winds coming from multiple directions vs. a head on wind.  The rocking back and forth is due to the backpressure on the system.  If you have your diffuser at 12’, then it will take about 5 pounds of pressure to push air thru the airlines.  To build up 5 lbs. of pressure it might take a 4, 5 or 6 mph wind to get the head to turn.  This is a normal part of operation, especially at low wind speeds or if you have inconsistent winds.
