You need to use your full real name rather than a company handle, it's one of the forum rules.

It would help if you could say which format you're shooting on, there are various sizes of spinning discs

There are a few manufacturers, it really depends on the lenses you're using and if you need to use say a 6.6 matte box or something smaller with say prime lenses.

There's also Fromm, who have a 6.6 model.

If it's for just a small amount of work it could be worthwhile renting one from a rental house, the main companies carry a range.

If wind is your issue, get a grip to hold a 4x double net next to the operator to shield them from the wind. Don't use a 4x floppy or foamcore, it'll create a vortex on the operator's side making the wind worse.
