I've been working on a new design for a feeder with some other guys and this is what we've come up with. 500 lb capacity, all internal motor and wiring, and 5' to the top of the barrel. The bottom discs are 26" diameter. Even that low to the ground, we're getting a 45' diameter throw with the 12 volt unit.

That is looking quite interesting. What is the distance from the bottom of barrel to the ground?

Must be nice to have a shop like that, make anything you want. Looks very interesting. Looks like about 6' to the top rim. Might be a struggle to lift 50# bag.

5' to the top, 15"-18" from ground to bottom plate. I'm going to try one this winter as a directional as well

I like it. Simple and should be real reliable and varmint resistant. Good job thinking out of the box.

Did you put some sort of housing over the motor? I would be afraid the corn dust would clog up your motor, short it out, etc....

Neat idea.

Have you had any problem with corn will building up inside between the bottom plates?

Maybe replace solid bottom metal with expanded metal. I thought about the same thing.
