Are they the new wave? Do they throw/sling the corn like taller feeders. I am on the shorter side and would love to stand and fill. Just need a little more info about the feeders. Can anybody help me out here?
thanks

They do not throw corn quite as far as the taller feeders. I just cut the legs off on my standard feeder so I can stand on the back of my Ranger and pour corn into it without a ladder. Works great and still throws corn about 25' away from my feeder in all directions.

As someone who both builds my own line of stand n' fills and carries those made by others I will say I am getting more and more inquiries for them. People like the safety, convenience, stability, and varmint resistance of them.

They will chunk corn plenty far. And, if max range is a concern, there are a few tricks that can be put in place to maximize the throw range.

TxAg, how do they stand up against hogs? Do you recommend them be fenced? All my feeders are fenced in, but not hog proof only cow proof.

We have 11 of the all seasons stand and fill's and they work great. Throws corn plenty far enough and will with stand the hog issues.

I've been using the oldtimer from texas wildlife supply in brady for years they are great no fence around them and we run cattle and have plenty of hogs. I highly recommend them.

Why would a lower feeder be more resistant to cattle and hogs? It seems like you would need a pen regardless.

Lower center of gravity. Our 55 gallon stand and fills are pretty resistant to tipping even when empty. The 600 lb'ers I'm not sure a hog could do it if he tried.

Yep, and most are built on skids. This means there are no legs to be pulled out of brackets or bent.

And, with an integral heavy cage there is little risk of damage to the motor timer.

Huntindude-You can run them without a pen if you don't mind hogs eating the feed. Not much they can do due to hurt them, especially if staked down.

If anybody is still reading this, how would you compare/contrast these with gravity feed type feeders?

That's really an apples to oranges comparison IMO.

All season stand and fill is the only way to go IMO. I have really enjoyed them so far and will be the first to highlight any shortcomings

I have several of the all season stand/fill feeders and have not had any issues. They can handle cows, hogs, axis, and deer. Great feeder for the $.

Lower center of gravity. Not as easy to turn over.

Fewer operator injuries. No ladder to fall off of.

Rambal makes cradle for 55 gallon drums to sit on. I have bought a few and the results are good all around.

Here is a picture of a pen the cows tore up but the feeder is still up right and working.
