Default Which feeder unit for Stand and Fill?

About to build a stand and fill for my new lease. Feeder pens are required so pigs shouldn't be a problem. Im looking at the Ultramatic, All Seasons, and West Texas Feeder supply all 12V with "The Timer" but which plate is best for stand and fill? I dont want a pile under the feeder but I also don't want it slinging way outside the pen!

If you go with the eliminator does this mean you wouldnt need a varmint cage?

I have a all seasons. It has the “flapper” plate. I’d put a cage around it, coons still crawl all over it

How far does that seem to sling it?

Don’t worry about the corn under the feeder.....the deer will eat it. If you feel like your Stand & Fill is too low......place cement pads under the legs to raise it. I did this very thing and the deer get under the feeder easily now. If you have Coons then a cage may come in handy. If you go with the Eliminator spinner then not much to worry about other than it functioning properly every single time. I have one on my road feeder that works well.
