Need help installing Endurance wind turbine

My company purchased an S-343 5kW wind turbine from Endurance Wind Power, but we don't seem to have the proper documentation or manual on how to install and maintain it. Since Endurance had gone out of business, we don't really know who to ask for this information.
Any information is appreciated, thank you!

Well, a fast search gives this link http://www.angelwindenergy.com/files/EnduranceWindPowerS343.04.2010.pdf which at least has something of a numbered diagram of the parts assembled together.


Everything else seems to be very vague or generic. I would think that most wind turbines would be generally similar. Have you look for owners manuals of competitors?

Yes we've already found that diagram, but thank you. I've contacted many companies that do work for wind turbines but none seem willing to help. We just need some sort of basic instruction manual to install

It would have been nice if it was that easy. I just happened to be online when your post showed up. There are a lot of knowledgeable people on here. Maybe someone even has the same turbine.

edit: I've added your question to the electrical forum to try an make it more visible to those knowledgeable people. Good luck.

I've tried to attach some manuals to this post, hopefully they are the correct ones. I found them on an eBay listing for that turbine

On a side now did you mount it on a 100ft-200ft pole.
And are you getting avg winds speed at the 30mph range at that height.
Aka are you getting 5000W(120kW/day)@30mph or is it 500W(10kW/day)@12mph
