Looking for some guidance...

I have been using a winch up feeder for years with lots of luck. I really like the winch up feeders because I am not a big fan of climbing any latter, especially with a 50# sack of feed on my shoulder!!! The problem I am running into now...I have a pig or two that have trained themselves (I have plenty of picture evidence) to work one leg out at a time until they can run one of the legs completely backwards and get the barrel on the ground. My feeder (and brand new timer, battery, and Inhognito light) is demolished and I have to buy something new now.

I would like to just eliminate the problem rifle taz but I haven't been successful and with my living situation, I can't devote enough time to kill the little bastards!!!

I am thinking about going with an All Seasons stand and fill 600# feeder and pounding t-posts at all four corners. Do y'all think I will be ok doing that with a pig infestation (like the rest of the state)?

What I see as pros:
1.) Low center of gravity
2.) Easier to fill
3.) 600# capacity. Works great for me since I can't get to the ranch as frequently as I would like
4.) Cost...$549 with timer and solar panel
5.) The cage around the timer looks very stout and like it would keep the coons off of it

My concerns:
1.) Pigs will either get it loose and knock it over and demolish it, or run it down the hill and demolish it
2.)........I can't think of any other concerns

What do y'all think? Has anyone had luck with them when there are a lot of pigs present?

Thanks for your input!

Get a stand and fill on skids and eliminate the single legs altogether.
I'm pretty sure All Seasons makes a model like that, and I know HB does.

Ross if you buy one set a game camera on it. If your nunber one concern comes true I will swap it out for a brand new one. Heck I will deliver it to you and pick up the damaged one too. Call me if you have any questions. Zach w/ ASF 210-288-four 77seven

We have an All season stand & fill 600# feeder. We have plenty of hogs . I put 1 t pole on 1 corner & have not had 1 problem with the pigs moving it. Coons can't mess with it either. It is a great feeder.

That's a great deal. May have just earned another customer, especially since I have pigs too. up

I have 8 of the 600LB stand and fill. I replaced all of mine about 2 years ago with them. To me not a better option and when I bought mine I paid 4K for mine. 500 a piece but I got a discount for buying over 3 at a time.

Enjoy them, coon proof and hog proof......Only thing that gets into them is squirrels. I take care of them with Duke Dog Proof traps at each feeder. Strap a little chain to them at one of the corners of the trap and done!

You can always run some light chain between the legs to stop them from being pulled out. Can't help you with hogs, I have never had to deal with them, knock on wood.

I'm in the same boat except my winch up has stood up to the cows and pigs rubbing on it. They haven't torn it up or knocked it down yet. However I'm going to get a stand and fill feeder. Love the design of the Diamond feeders but some of the guys on our place have the All Seasons and they seem to function well.

How do they hold up to cows without putting up feed pens?

I am looking at getting one too but am just not sure if the cows we demolish it or not with just putting a t post at each corner.

I would love to have one, but my concern is that I seem to shoot a lot of deer through the tripod legs of my feeders. I would hate to buy a feeder that would result in fewer shot opportunities.

Any thoughts on this from the folk who have used this type of feeder? Is it a non-issue?
