Have one of the TWS feeders. Coons don't get in it but, they do eat the corn under/around it. Easy to come up and fill. Works well. No hogs on our place so can't tell you anything on that. If/when we do get hogs I'll stake it down with some T-posts.

I LOVE my HB stand and fill! Will be buying more of them. Have some pics of coons TRYING to get in em. They were unsuccessful. I won't ever buy another feeder that isn't stand and fill. Timers and such have been flawless. T posts to anchor and a feed pen to keep the hogs off.

I've got six of the HB feeders and I'm always puzzled as to why there's never much mention of them on this site.
I put eliminator plates on all of mine and have been amazed at the amount of corn that is saved due to the design of these feeders and the plate. I'm actually buying another one this month.
I honestly feel like they're the last feeders I'll have to buy. IMO they're much better than the All Seasons because no corn drops directly below the spinner box and they're welded steel.

If your ever in San Angelo get a West Texas Game Feeders stand and fill. Save some $$ and a great unit. I think I have 7 of them now.

I went with the TWS feeder, mainly because it came complete with the solar panel, battery and eliminator spinner plate and it was $110 cheaper than the HB.

How much are the HB 650# ? How far does it sling corn?

The 650# EZ Reach models run around $800.00 I believe. For about $100.00 more you can go all the way up to 1000 Lb. feeder.
All their feeders come with the large 12V motor, solar panel that is attached to the box, and "The Timer" also.
Mine fling corn out to 20'+ depending on how long of a spin cycle you have programmed, and at the end of each cycle, the corn slides down the angled steel and falls outside the unit. Nothing goes directly under the spinner .

Just noticed the TWS feeder looks like it carries the Texas Trophy Hunters logo. Any affiliation?
Hope not.

The HB feeders are more expensive due to them being all steel, and the heavy gauge wire they use on the cages.
There's nothing lightweight about them. I compared all brands before I bought and I've been extremely happy with them.
I used to have all Monarch products, but they have changed hands a few times in the last 10 years, and the guys that own it now aren't keeping up with the Jones' as far as new products go.

Looks like you've added about a foot to the height. Probably a pretty good idea up
