Yes!!!!

10 bags lasts us almost 3 months.

Keep in mind, this is losing 0 to coons or squirrels or any dropping off the spinner

I have 3 of the big 650lb game Winners. All of them have been great feeders. The 6v slings the corn a long ways.

Going out in 2 weeks. I am taking the Dremel and think that I am going to cut some of the critter guard. A lot of corn hits the guard and falls straight down, never getting through.

I just bought the smaller version and it went together in about 30-45 minutes. Just a lot of bolts in the steel parts. Very heavy construction for a $249.00 feeder. Gonna place a solar panel on mine this afternoon.

we've got three now. I love the design. Timer is in a separate unit from the motor so the cage doesn't need to be removed to adjust timer. No real reason to unscrew the cage unless you need to change the thrower height. If the timer does end up filing, it's easy enough to replace with "the timer". Plan on slowly replacing all of our feeders with these.

Is it possible to add one of these feeder controllers? https://westtexasfeedersupply.com/pr...r-solar-panel/

Not really. The motor and spinner are the only thing on the bottom inside the cage. The cage is screwed onto the barrel so it doesnít come off easily. The timer and battery are in a box inside the barrel.

Iím sure you could rig one like that up. But it will be difficult to adjust times due to the screwed on cage. And it wonít get any sunlight on the panel. Not sure it would even fit inside the cage.
