American Windmills Logo

We specialize in the original Chicago AERMOTOR Windmills with a rebuilt motor that has oil seals and roller bearings. THIS Aermotor windmill is the BEST motor you will find on the market. My Aermotor will start up in the slightest PUFF of wind. From the outside, the windmill blades and tail will look like it's been up at your place for years, but the motor guts and the internal spinning parts will be brand new. Since you can't see these parts, it will LOOK old with a beautiful patina. Most of these Windmills come from California where there isn't ANY rust. We put a FULL 20 year warranty on these windmills.

These windmills have the top-of-the-line gear boxes. Paul and Ron have come up with an oil seal, roller bearing model that not only will turn on the slightest puff of wind (3 MPH), AND they are guaranteed NOT to leak for 20 years. I even have a gearbox that doesn't require oil if you're not going to pump.  If you're tired of maintenance or oil on the tower, look into this windmill. These windmills have the original blades and tails. There aren't ANY prettier windmills and towers anywhere with the authentic parts AND warranty. I have pumpers or future pumpers, spinners or non spinners...let me know what you would like on YOUR property.


American Windmills can rebuild YOUR windmill with these oil seals and roller bearings. Give me a call @ 530-295-7795 or email me.

Windmill and Wood TankWe have new AERMOTOR windmills and towers.  Give me a shot at pricing the new one.  My "new" prices are cheaper than purchasing from the factory. I guarantee it.

We carry handpumps, which are now on sale, towers, pump cylinders, pump rod, adapters, replacement parts and manuals with parts diagrams for Baker Monitor Windmills, Dempster Windmills, and AERMOTOR Windmills.

Do you need wood tower plans?  I have them for a 25' tower up to 47' for $100.  

I'm chock full of knowledge about the water pumping system. This IS your ONE STOP Windmill Store! We also have a machine shop dedicated to making hard to find Windmill and hand pump parts! Please take a minute to Bookmark this site, please.

Did you know that Windmills can pump a total head of over 1000 feet "up" and they can pump for miles and miles in a straight line? Call me and see what else you've been led to believe!  How about this…most AERMOTOR Windmills don't have seals!  If they leak, that means they're worn out and need to be rebuilt with new babbit bearings…or it could just be a dirty oil collector which is a 5 minute, $10 fix.  (Did you see the rebuilt AERMOTOR windmill WE sell…it has the oil seal and roller bearing!)

Paul and Ellen of American WindmillsIn my travels, both throughout the country and on the net, I've found others that claim to be in the Windmill business.  They say that they're selling a Windmill that is "rebuilt" but it might not even be rebuilt at all, just painted or a few parts exchanged.  My advice to you is the old adage; "you get what you pay for!"  My dad always said "You're never sorry if you buy quality". At AMERICAN WINDMILLS you will ALWAYS buy quality AND all of my rebuilt products are backed with a FULL 10-year guarantee! If you like this web page and it helps you, then you'll love my customer service and product. I answer the phone 7 days a week, 24 hours a day (almost)! Be nice; PLEASE don't call before 8:00 AM pacific time in California!

DON'T just rebuild it, make it better.

You NEED to see the new 6' windmill on a redwood tower that stands 19' tall and costs $5,000!  

Did you see my redwood tank page?  I have the prettiest redwood tanks...some old and some new.  It's the old growth heart redwood that you don't find anymore.  I have a 10,000 gallon redwood tank right now and a few others.

Towers come in all shapes and sizes.  I have and 4 and 3 leg towers.  I also have the wood tower plans for $100.

Remember that the 10th anniversary is the TIN anniversary.  THINK WINDMILLS!

I added a page called Windmillers' Hints.

If you need to install a Windmill, tower or hand pump system, or any part of a system, then look at my How to install the Windmill, Tower and Hand Pump page. This is full of great hints!

On my Sales Page you’ll find a list of the windmill products I sell.  There are many links from the Sales page to other pages.

Wood Rod and Guides

Here's what the wood rod and guides will look like inside your windmill tower!   Notice the AERMOTOR ladder loops on the corner post.

Ellen and Salesman Sample Windmill

Have you ever heard of a Salesman Sample Windmill?  I got one for my birthday and here's a picture of it.  It’s an exact replica of the real thing, down to the small nuts and bolts, in 25% miniature.  Very cool, very rare.  It's an open-geared Samson Windmill made in Freeport, Illinois by the Stover Manufacturing Company.
