Direction and Placement on Hub
The image shown here illustrates the Raptor G4 Wind Turbine Blade Assembly. Please be sure to read all of the notes below to ensure you have installed them in the correct direction.
All Raptor blades have a flat tip that must face the wind. On the Generation 4 (G4) blades, the words "Raptor USA" must be showing when assembly is complete. The bolts are meant to be snug in the hole, but if the bolts fit too tightly, you can re-drill using a 1/4" drill bit. Use the provided self-locking nuts or the blades could come loose.
The blades are flexible and you might receive them slightly bent. If this is the case, install them anyway. They will self-straighten in the wind after a couple of weeks and stay this way permanently. ONLY tighten the blade bolts to 5 foot pounds of torque or the blade handles will crack!!
The wind turbine hubs come zinc-plated and do not require painting. The wind turbine blades have a 25 year UV protectant and do not require painting.
WARNING: The Raptor G4 blades turn very fast and can cause severe bodily damage if you come into contact with them. Never place a wind turbine near power lines or structures. Place wind turbine high enough to be out of reach of children and inexperienced persons. Missouri Wind and Solar, LLC assumes no liability for injury or damage caused by these blades.
