Lamco Low and Throw is the best. There’s several tied for 2nd.

Lamco should pay you to be a spokesman.....

Anyway, lots of great options now at various price points. Consider ASF, Ranch King, and many others in addition to Lamco.

I have HB 700 EZ Reach, HB 400 EZ Reach that I bought new and never had any issues.

I have 2 x crossfire 1000 that where on the new acreage when I got it only had battery issues with them.

All those are solar and 12volt.

The other feeders on the ranch suck so not mentioning them.

I've got the Lamco and the ASF (not the bucees one but they seem good for the price). I like the ease of filling the Lamco but the design makes it harder to work on. Had the spinner plate come loose from the shaft and had to disassemble the bottom to fix it. ASF uses a regular feeder box but is tall enough a shorter guy might have to lift the bags overhead. Ive used capsule feeders as well. I'd take the lamco.

Lamco Lo and Throw 600 for me.... I also have a Bucees ASF 600 and a 600 lb Woods2Water directional to compare them too.....the Woods to Water directional is slowly becoming my second favorite but it needs the **** battery gauge on the timer to work before I bump it up. So far so good on the feeding side after removing the rheostat..


Not sure either would ever surpass the Lamco though. In fact if the W2W ends up not working out, it will be a Lamco 600 to replace it.

And there is something to be said for a stand and fill you can dump the bag of corn off your tailgate into the bin versus having to pick up and hold over your shoulder and push over into the ""stand and fill"..

If they wanna pay me Iíd take it. The OP asked which one was the best so I answered him.

Ranch King, Greengo, ASF, are all good feeders. Iíve had them all or had hunting buddies with them. Out of all those mentioned ASF would be last on that list. Itís not a knock against it. Lots of folks recommend ASF because thatís what they have. Itís not as well built as some of the others. The one who made the comment about Lamco being harder to work on is correct. Thankfully they donít need work very often.

So TRUE. When i set my woods2water directional up i test threw and it showed 1 bar after and i put a full charged battery on it. So i drove back up a week later hoping it wasn't dead and it still showed 1 bar but was throwing corn so i put a new fully charged battery on. I didnt realize it was just an issue with the timer

Yup...mine reads 0 and 1 bars at times. I pull the battery off to test and its reads 12.8V running like a champ. I think we are figuring out why they were sold cheap this spring. I guess we should be at least happy they work but it will be tough to know when the batteries are going bad eventually.

I just hope it doesn't cost me a few hunts at my favorite blind being dead out of the blue one season ...Being 5 hours one way will **** a fella off. Never had it with my others that i can monitor somewhat.. I'm probably going to change it every 3 or so years like you and fend it off.

I have some atascosa 600lbs feeders, has the timer and a regular feeder box.
Heavy duty cage to keep the racoons out, but not birds.
I ran one for a year or two to test, now upgrading feeders to the atascosa.
The only downfall is if your a shorty, might need a boost or a tailgate to load it.
I'm 6'3" and no issues from shoulder to hopper. My boy is around 5'8" and can barely get it in, but he's only 13.

Yeah on our Texas wildlife supply feeders we've gone 4-5 years without a battery failing. Hopefully the solar panel does its job and i ride off in the the sunset with a 180" buck. (I should probably hunt somewhere else to get that but a man can dream)

Texas Wildlife Supply is likely the toughest, best built feeder made. Solid steel. Eliminator plate. Varmint cage. On skids.

I have the Texas Wildlife Supply line, 2000 pounder and really like it so for, got them for 2022, they seem well built and with that much capacity we donít have to refill that often. We are hoping only a couple times a year.

You have the right to be wrong.



TWS are very well built though. There’s no need for an eliminator plate, or varmint cage on the Lamco. Hence it’s better built. Plus you don’t have to get on your knees to adjust the timer like you do on the TWS feeder. Lamco throws corn farther too because there’s no cage knocking it down. Both feeders have skids.

Negative.

The Texas Wildlife Supply eliminator plate and Varmint cage only make it more fun for the raccoons. I called and left a VM but they never found the time to call me back.

Hard to tell from those pictures but that doesn’t look like a Texas Wildlife Supply Stand and fill. Do you have any better day pics of it?
I was thinking off the pics that it looked like a Texas Hunter Products feeder but I may be completely wrong.

And the Lamco is definitely easier to fill than the ASF. Idk about harder to work on because Iíve never had to work on one yet.

When I first switched to stand and fill years ago these ^^^^ were the two best made imo. I gave the nod to Lamco because it’s easier to fill. Can’t go wrong with either one though

That’s not even the feeder I’m talking about. I don’t know that they have ever made anything smaller than a 600 lb.

This is what I’m referring to. They won’t get a drop of corn out of it. This one is 1000 lb. I have a 600 as well.

So who ya gonna believe? Trophy8 or some dude that doesn’t remember the name of his feeder

I donít want corn outside the pen. And you sound like smart. Canít bend down every now and then to look at the timer. Maybe youíre adjusting on it too much

Lamco makes good stuff! How do they hold up to Aoudad and goats etc? Iím assuming they will beat that narrow gap shut over time?

You gut hooked um huh lol
I think they are nice feeders,, I just don't like the location of the feeder motor. To low to the ground and exposed to hogs or varmints that wanna jack with it.
I don't wanna have to get on my knees or bend over to check timers/batteries. Don't like the cage around the thrower either.

They are built out of great materials, just needs alittle tweaking before I get me some.

This is one of my main requirements for a top vote on a feeder. We change the feed times and check the system/battery/solar too much throughout the year to be bending over and getting on our knees each time. We are 5 hours away so we have to stay on top of it. The timer and battery must be on the side or top inside and have easy access.

My original ASF time protein feeder had the box, timer, battery, motor and everything tucked up under feeder. What a horrible design and a colossal pain in the ***. I bought it used and cheap so I called ASF to see if they would sell me the side box they were putting on the new models. They did and for $40 bucks and a little rewiring, it went from PITA to perfect. If I had the ASG corn feeders with the cages that look like my protein feeders, I would have the same control box installed on them.
