Default Heavy duty 600 lb stand and fill

I made a few of these up the other day and they turned out nice. Started with 14 gauge sheet metal for the hopper.

Then added legs cage and some sheet metal to keep the corn from piling up below the feeder.


Then a trip to the powder coated and added THE timer with solar panel!

I did the lid different on both. That's why they look different in the pics

Very well built. If you don't mind me asking, what do you have in it materials wise? What are the dimensions on your cuts? Thinking hard about making something like this.

Wow. Awesome work. Looked at a couple this weekend and couldn't bring myself to spend $1k on two feeders! How many man-hours you think you got in the build? just curious...
