You will love no climbing lathers to fill feeders. My son (Little Concho) built ours last year and they worked out great.

Did they hold a 1000 lbs? Did you have some one bend a full sheet so you only had to weld up one seam? I sure like the looks of these feeders. Awesome job!

Need to put the cross member between skids on top. It's going to act as a box blade when dragging.
Otherwise awesome

JDL,
Is that the spin tech "inverted" motor design? Their road feeders have the motor on the bottom but this one looks like it's inside the feeder?
I looked on their site and the only thing I found that was similar was their inverted model?
Did it come with the housing. Name:  IMG_2922.JPG

Great looking feeder but what do you do if your motor stops working and you have a lot of corn in the feeder? I assume you would have to dump out all the corn to get to the motor correct? I run 18 feeders(most are 1000#) and I'm replacing a couple of motors every year and I sure would hate to have to dump out 400-1000#s of corn just to replace the motor. Maybe I missing something and you can replace the motor without dumping out all the corn. Other then that, that feeder looks awesome.

It is advertised that the motor being inside the feeder prolongs the life of the motor. That doesn't answer your question tho

Some of those inverted motors come with the directional housing and some do not.

I ordered them from spin tech and the came with it.

The motor slides in through the bottom and is held on with self tapping screws. So if it were to go out you can swap it out without loosing much corn.
