Huh! who'd a thunk it?



Corn Vending Machine for sale

no, this is not mine, but I found it interesting and never thought about something like this ... pretty sizable investment and might take a while before it started making money for itself.

Last I checked, the turkey, deer, and hogs don't carry cash or credit.

ha, right! I suspect this would be set up similar to those randomly located vending style ice machines, where hunters could stop in at any time day or night and get corn. I suspect it would need to be a heavy traffic route for hunters and once they found it, it would take off like hotcakes IF the prices were cheap.

Unless you can prove the coons were stealing with intent to sell and not just using for their own not really admitting it was stolen, there can be no penalty. Deny, deny, deny, and when faced with the facts, deflect and say all the previous raccoons did the same thing bang

Yes sir! Placed on the right highway with hunter travel....Use Indian corn and you'd need a 20,000# hopper

simple math, that comes out to 380 50 lb bags of corn that it holds ... I wonder what bulk corn prices are??? from what I find online, $3.15-$3.47 per bushel (which is about 56 lbs)

That thing must be a lot bigger than it looks to hold 9.5 tons of corn.

We had a guy here in Albany that had two 30 ton overhead bins that took a credit card and metered the corn.
It bombed and he sold it after 5 years.

I have a Corn Xpress Vending machine up for sale. It hold 19k lbs of corn and dispenses four different size purchases. The machine accepts cash or all credit cards conveniently. The machine is a great way to create a conveinence for deer hunters in the area. I also have a newspaper machine which dispenses bags that I will include with the purchase. If you would like to know more please email or txt me at 2sevenzero62five3four92. $28,000 obo


I was wondering about something like this when the ice machines started popping up all around the country. Buying in bulk, charging the same or even a little more for convenience of a local 24 hour source. I think it will float, and soon be a regular stop for a lot of hunters.

This will cut out a lot of labor for the grain dealers, no bags to load and unload, just drive up and auger in up to 19K pounds. You can also charge for the bags, even a small amount to cover costs.
