How does this hold up against hogs being this low ?

No issues at all. It's very sturdy.

I have one very similar made by Outdoor Addiction... very low to ground but not on a sled, has 4 legs. Never a problem with hogs.

It holds up well, but parking it in the median would attract a lot of attention, donít you think !

I have the Buckees version which looks much less solid and 2 years in no mechanical problems. Being that low the pigs mud up my solar panel a lot. You might have to wipe the panel down some.

I have the 300 lb version that I’ve had since 2016 and haven’t had any issues with pigs and aoudad and random kinds of goats/sheep that come through

We ran those and Lamco never had an issue with East TX hogs. Both great feeders.

I bought 3 of these in 600lb this past summer for a new lease I’m on this year, and so far so good. No pig issues … yet (even though I have them on the game cameras)

Well, I’m not using for Highway medians but I am buying one tomorrow. I’ll feel better if I can stake her down but if you guys say they are good, I’ll give it a whirl.

For medians I use 1/2 pack grape koolaid in a bottle of pancake syrup.

I have been running 6 of these for several years on a couple different pig infested ranches without an issue.

No reason to stake it down.

In general no issues but we have had hogs root out holes under them so large they ended up tipping over.

Mine has been great. I did have to tie up the solar panel wire that goes in the timer box because coons could pull it, but that’s it.

The hogs are no problem on ours, but the aoudad have torn them to pieces!!!!! Get Lamco Low n Throw if you have aoudad!

Aoudad are in the area I want to place this, how is the lamco much different?

I still plan to stake it to help prevent tipping.

It will be in Hill Country, lot of rock.

We have 4 Lamco and HAD about 6-7 ASF feeders. The aoudad would ram the ASF feeders till they tore them to he-double l. For months, I had at least one feeder a week in the shop, beating and welding it back into shape. We got rid of the ASF feeders. We still have all 4 Lamco Low n Throw feeders and the aoudad have not touched a single one.

I think, because of the way the control box is mounted under the ASF, that when the aoudad ram it corn easily falls out. As soon as that happens, they just keep ramming till the feeder is empty, destroyed, or trumped over.

They have not even put a dent in a Lamco feeder as of yet, and they have been out there probably for over a year now.

We had the same problem with the 1500# Lamco trough protein feeders. They were ramming them and completely tearing them up. With these, I also always had at least one in the shop being repaired. I finally came up with a solution for that, and in the last 6 months, have not had a single protein feeder damaged.
