Default Best 1000 lb. Broadcast Feeders?

Since it is almost a six hour drive to the lease and I'm tired of having to fill feeders every time I go, I am looking at getting two 1000 lb. broadcast feeders for each of our spots on our deer lease around Junction. I've looked at several and have kind of narrowed it down to either All Seasons Feeders or Lamco Feeders.

Which one would y'all go with, or if any of y'all have any input on what is the "best" brand of feeder to go with feel free to speak up.

Thanks!

I highly recommend the Lamco low and throw feeders. Set them up and never worry about them again. They are coon proof too

I bought the 1000# lamco before the season and have had zero issues with it so far. Bought it for the same reason as you. was tired of going to fill every 6 weeks.

Iíd love 1,000 pound feeders !

Problem I have is black bears ripping the spinners off.

I have to have the base of our feeder 8.5 feet from the ground and about 4 feet of chain so they donít shimmy down and lift the lid off.

I purchased 2 of the Lamco 1000# feeders last year from Buckstop and love them. They are not the low and throw one but they are not tall at all. Filling them out of a Ranger bed is no issue at all.

Very solid feeders and over a year later there is nothing about them I do not like.

I fill feeders twice a year. Labor Day and after season when I turn then back down.

Looks like Lamco is in the lead right now, but I did pm Krivoman. Figured I would try to support a TBH brother first. Anyways, keep the feedback coming. I'm liking what I am reading!

I've got the HB 1,000 pounders. They are built really solid. Should last forever.

I own 5 of them and love them, only thing is the gap at the bottom should be a tad smaller so the squirrels don't get in.I am shrinking mine with some different coupling nuts

Looked at those, but don't like how they aren't sold with the actual spinning units. Or at least that what I saw on their website.

Lamco 1,000lb Low and Throw. Easier fill height than our 600lb AS Stand & Fills and the completely encased controls on the outside are nice. Both are well built though so can’t go wrong.

Lamco feeders are built to last. I just bought a 600lb stand and fill and I think they are the best out there in the market right now. Ranch Kings are nice but over priced imo.

Lamco for sure. They use West Texas feeder supply electronics which is the best by a long shot!

They are sold with everything you need but the battery and the corn. They come with THE TIMER. Not sure where you saw them without the spinners.

how easy/hard are the Lamcos to maintain/work on? Seems like oiling the throw plate or replacing the motor on those would be a pain in the butt.

Also, how thick is the metal over and under the throw plate? Could ten coons hanging on it or a cow bend it?
