It's 30 gallon...


A couple people used them at an old lease and seemed to work well. No real issues

He can almost double the capacity with a 55 gal drum. That is what I use and I only have 15+ acres to hunt now. I have very light deer density, in fact my neighbor who also has 15 acres has a 55 feeder, yes, the deer make the rounds, but I still only get about 1-2 months of run time. On 40 acres I'd have a 55 gal just to avoid constant re-filling, if you throw a lot and have the deer to clean it up.

As far as the product, sorry I have never tried that one.

I would recommend a 55gallon drum and an all seasons unit.

How much do you want to spend and are you willing to pay for quality/longevity?

What Rick posted above, or contact TXAg on here, I bought a 12v timer for the barrel I had from him and it is super. Here is one of his threads with his webpage link.
