Default Eliminator spinner plate on a Lamco road feeder

Has anyone changed out the cup in a Lamco road feeder with an Eliminator spinner plate?

If so, any suggestions or modifications that need to be done? Any info would be appreciated.

Do you know the diameter of the shaft on the Lamco road feeder? Pretty sure the Eliminator only fits on 1/4" shafts.

I'd go SpinTech on a road feeder. To much mud and dust for the Eliminator. Word on the street is that All Seasons is going back to Spin Tech on the road feeders. To many problems with the Eliminator.

The eliminator will not work on a lance road feeder since the motor is inside the hopper, so the spinner plate would be upside down.

Yep, I tried to rap my head around a mod for it but couldn't come up with anything worth the hassle.

They do sell a lower until with the eliminator you can attach but that would require welding on additional brackets to attach the until onto the angled hopper.

I had TERRIBLE luck with Spin Tech throw plates. They get very loose after awhile and leave gaps between it and the funnel.
The main problem I had with them is that the metal ears that stick up to throw the corn, all broke off after time. Weirdest thing I ever saw. We have cages around all the feeders so it wasn't varmints doing it. I would just show up, and another ear would be broken off. Eventually, all three would be gone, resulting in corn piling right under the feeder.
I asked the Spin Tech guys and they just blew me off like I was dumb. This happened on 5 different feeders multiple times. I still don't know why it is happening, but it is consistently. I am switching over the Eliminators now.

Default Eliminator spinner plate on a Lamco road feeder

So, Iím still not convinced that either the Spintech or the eliminator would be better than the cup of the lamco.

When I first tried the feeder, I put a little bit of corn to try it out on my ranger. It worked fine. I then loaded up the ranger to gas it up and take it to the ranch. When I arrived at the gas station, I noticed there was no more corn in the feeder. Did it just run out or did it blow out in the wind? I still donít know.

When I arrived at the ranch. I poured a 50 pound bag in the feeder and it worked fine. I drove around the ranch and it seemed like no corn dropped out of the cup.

So, if I move the ranger from one ranch to the other, I guess I just need to make sure thereís no corn in the feeder. But, thatís why I was asking about my options.

The cup type or pro spinner plate works great but while it’s parked in camp at night the coons grab the little ears and break the springs. I’ve replaced it at least 3-4 times. I guess spintech might be what I try next.

My problem with Spin Techs were them gumming up on the cylinder that it slides up and down on and they didn't do well on a 6v system which was the reason I used them as the eliminator won't work at all on 6v systems. The 1 eliminator I had on a 12v system worked perfectly.
I took them to the place that I bought them, local sporting goods store, and the owner said Spin Tech wouldn't do anything about them gumming up. So I threw them in the trash in front of the guy and said I will be going with eliminator on all my feeders then, even if I have to change them to 12v systems.
