So I mostly just read what everyone else posts here and generally really enjoy the site. I had a winch style barrel feeder today snap as I was cranking it up with only 100 lbs of feed in it. Granted these feeders are 9 years old and have been well maintained, but they have always been coon and squirrel magnets and are difficult to fill and keep running.

I want a feeder I donít have to climb a ladder to fill or winch into place. Basically a stand and fill feeder. I live in DFW and would like to reach out to the collective knowledge of the group for their favorite feeders that fit this bill. I need 3 of them. Iím tired of climbing ladders on some feeders and winching others. Ultimately, I just donít think it is really safe anymore. Please advise.

Google capsule feeders. Sit on the ground and use an auger to move feed up to the spinner. Monarch has a shorter one but not exactly stand and fill.

I have a few All Seasons 600 lb stand and fills and have zero complaints. Most reliable feeders Iíve had.

I've owned and still own most of the feeders mentioned above:

I would rank in this order:

Alamo
Capsule
All Seasons
Ramball
Hang m High
Monarch

Alamo is far superior to them all, the main difference being the varmit protection. Coon cages are out of date and inefficient. They knock down your feed and pile it up around the base of the feeder. The Alamo throws out a perfect circle of evenly spread feed so multiple animals can feed without crowding each other or trying to dominate the feed piles from other deer there to feed.

Noticed Ramball has a new varmit protection design like Alamo on his new models that don't have coon cages. So those models I would rate above the All Seasons.

Just bought three this season and they are flawless, thus far. If you don't need a 600, the 300s are lower to the ground and even easier to fill.

The only reason I went with the 600 lbs is the price difference from where I buy is like $50. Not worth it IMO to get the smaller model, especially for the resale value. I feel like I paid 525$ OTD for my 600 lb (motor/timer/battery included) and the 300 lb were 479$.

Someone above mentioned hang em high feeders. I have three of these as well and they are nice and very well built. However they are more expensive than the all seasons and you still have to crank them up. Also weíve had the wind take one down. Havenít had the wind mess with an all seasons yet.
