The hooty Owl sits astride the arrow (they will perch anywhere) He measures 350mm tall and 190mm wide, N,S,E & W directionals are 590mm across and the Arrow he’s perched on is 700mm. The total height of the weathervane including thes haft is780mm. These Weathervanes are Australian Made.
How It Works
The arrow and figure revolve on a ball bearing over a stainless Steel Shaft. The weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
A Stainless Steel mounting plate is available for fixing to the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a Stainless Steel gable bracket available (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.
