> What were you thinking of using the stored hydraulic power to do?

I'd like to experiment with mechanical heaters - specifically cavitation heaters and eddy current heaters - to heat water directly. I have a partially completed thermal storage tank of close to 500 gallons capacity to store the mechanically heated water. Hydraulics (or compressed air to a lesser degree) would give me the ability to vary rpm and torque which would be installed indoors adjacent the storage tank and remote from the windmill.
