cheers How well does the feed flow out to the ends of each port so the deer can eat?

Looks like tubes at the bottom too long to get good flow for deer to reach.

Once I fill it with protein when it's set up I will be cutting the tubes shorter. I never know how long to make them.

I did a Timed feeder real close to that and I used long sweeps on the 90...I am going to eliminate the sweeps and just put a pan underneath the straight pipe coming down...Looks good up

The question becomes how much weight will that plastic pipe hold?

Keep us posted after you fill it up. up

Stainless wire from each leg to the PVC with some turn buckles will sturdy her up nicely. I have roughly the same set-up on an 85 gallon barrel and the wire/turnbuckle combo works great with my long 53" PVC tube.

Will the pipe really not hold up? I never considered that.

It'll be fine sir. Like I said mine is 53" in length with only 4 self tapers holding it to the drum. Adjust the turnbuckles and make sure the wire/rope/straps are slightly upward and you'd be surprised how rigid it'll be.
