Has Anyone come up w/ a cheap Corn auger for loading Feeders. I have seen 2 commercial ones $800 & $1700. And a few u-tube specials that appear to be workable but not well executed examples.

one version looks interesting take a weed eater Blower and long hose feed corn in via hopper and blow it in the feeder ( not sure how well this works)

Cut the legs off on your feeder till you can fill the feeder while standing in the bed of a truck or UTV. That is what I did.

looking for something for multiple hunters on a lease with various height and style feeders.

cutting legs is a great idea. if the feeders were all the same or even all mine.

Neighbor uses the leaf blower and PVC with a sweep on the end. He said it worked.

I'm gonna fire up the welder and make my one feeder attach to a cable that runs t
up to a pulley, and over to a boat winch. Lower it to the ground, fill it, raise it back up. But that could add up to some money for several feeders.

Just use your truck. It has multiple heights for different feeders.
1. Out of the bed.
2. Off of the bed rails.
3. Off of the tool box.
4. Off of the top of the cab! Only use this height when you are desperate and driving an old truck. grin

No pics. I think he has a tee down by the blower, with a foot or two of pipe pointing skyward. He stepped up the pipe size to make a funnel to pour the corn into, from the ground.

A sweep is a 90 degree turn, but with a larger radius. It's what's used in plumbing drains.

We're switching everything to crank up tripods, or better yet Diamond/Judge feeders, stand on the ground
