Winpower Inc. home page
Winpower was founded in 1925 and produced devices for generating electricity using the wind to power them. Through the years Winpower has continually diversified products lines and marketing channels. In World War II Winpower produced thousands of 1.5 kW DC and 5 kW AC generators for the Corps of Engineers. At the beginning of the Cold War, Winpower supplied thousands of 15 kW Civil Defense generators. Many are still going strong today providing backup power for the Government, small municipalities, and standby for small community wells & lift stations.In the 1950's, Winpower introduced its most successful and enduring line, the tractor driven power take-off (PTO) generator. Farmers found that having reliable backup for frequent power outages was a wise investment. Winpower is a thriving generator manufacturer based in Minnesota. Our core lines are tractor driven PTO generators marketed through distributors nationwide. The agricultural markets, primarily dairy, swine, and poultry, producers are the common end users for PTO generators. We offer tractor driven PTO generators to accommodate tractors in the 20 - 230 horsepower range. Today Winpower is finding another niche market - the small acreage landowner with a 20-40 hp tractor that needs dependable backup power in a small PTO driven generator.Winpower markets the 2.5 kW to 15 kW air-cooled portable generators through distributors and directly to rental and construction supply businesses. The portables have sold briskly to home standby markets as well as through our distributors. The realization by the consumer that the power supply is not always guaranteed has created high demand on existing supplies of generators with Winpower the label.Winpower offers 10 - 500 kW skid or trailer mounted generators powered by diesel, propane, and natural gas engines. The end user for these units are electrical contractors, municipalities, ag markets, and homeowners.We are large enough to handle any size of order, yet small enough to consider your individual requirements.
