AEROMOTOR WINDMILL
Moved here from the old Miller farm, 16000 W. Cleveland Ave., it replaced the original windmill that once stood on the same existing base.

Its damaged 8-foot wheel and motor were repaired and restored to operate again atop the 40-foot tower by Society member Allen Mueller in 1999

Al said this Aermotor Model 602 was made from 1916 to 1932 and could pump 30 oz. of water from its well on each upstroke of the shaft (connecting the wheel motor to the pump) pumping 32 strokes per minute with a wind velocity of 15 to 18 m.p.h.
The Aeromotor Windmill is located at New Berlin Historical Park on eastbound West National Avenue / County Road ES, just west of its intersection with West Batton Road, New Berlin, Wisconsin 53146.
