Just dropped one 2 weeks ago at my lease, so far it has done well. Very well constructed, easy to set up and no exposed wiring or extra work needed to make it truly varmint proof.

I tell you, I've looked at them but have a hard time spending my money on a product that yes, might be assembled in Texas, but everything else is made overseas. You can't get around the electronics on a lot of stuff these days, but that needs to be US steel or at least steel that was handled here in those feeders, from the breaking and stamping of that steel all the way to the packaging.
Just my opinion. There's plenty of feeders out there that are "home grown" from start to finish and it shows in the workmanship. Buy cheap or buy quality, buy from your neighbor or from across the country (or another country), its a personal choice.

Not really anything to do with the original post. Every ounce of material in 95% of vehicles, every piece of furniture and appliance you have, and every electronic is all made and outsourced from overseas. Doesnít even enter my mind because itís unavoidable. Kinda silly if you stand up for one and use all others.

I've got one and it's been virtually trouble free for over 3 years. The solar panel was wired incorrectly and they gave me a new one, no questions asked.

Heck yeah! Thanks for letting me know that.
Iím definitely a ďbuild-it-myselfĒ guy when it comes to feeders, but my sonís feeder got destroyed a few weeks back and we bought a junker that day because he was having axis showing up and he was devastated when he found his broke beyond repair.
I was driving by the lease yesterday with work and his junker was not working very well either, so I went back in town and picked him up one of these and got it put out yesterday. We are scheduled to do some brush clearing and stand prepping this weekend, so itís going to be a surprise for him when we drive up. It looks to be pretty well made and he will be on Cloud 9. Heís 14 and a great kid and has really taken to hunting this last couple years. Heís been working his butt off all summer so I figured he deserved it. Iím pretty sure itís the first feeder Iíve ever purchased and didnít build, so was hoping it would last for a while.

These don't even look like the same feeders?

We got one about 2 years ago from Lowes in Rocksprings there are well built better than some other brands out there. The only issue we had was the sight glass to see if how much corn is in the feeder leaked and some of the corn got wet. Easy fix just caulk around the sight glass other than that no issues. Would and will buy another one. We have cows and some good sized pigs and they haven't messed with or moved it.

The one I got Gus has been running strong. Absolutely zero complaints.

I have 2 and have had zero issues. I have the 650lb and they were only $399 at the Lowes Supermarket in Freer and Rocksprings. Got one from each location. I liked it better than the ASF EZ Fill that Bucees sells.
