Made a new feeder from scratch this year. Added a little plexi glass window so I can see the corn level from my blind. Bought a American Hunter RD-Pro spinner along with a solar panel and varmint zapper.

Always like the little Windows to see corn level, place widow towards blind to see with scope.

Thanks guys so far it's working great, varmint zapper is keeping the coons off saving me lots of corn.

Looks great, or the legs short enough for stand and fill?

You did a fine job on that one.

Yeah I made them so I could load the corn from my pickup, it worked great.

The last few seasons I've been telling myself "man a window would be nice" and the coons keep killing me on corn, so this year I had enough.

Very nice set up. Just a bit of advise from personal experience with the same spinner set up. Replace the battery every so often with a full charged one. The solar panel doesn't keep up with a the draw of current that the spinner and zapper together puts out. However, it does make the battery last longer. With mine once the battery died the coons got to the spinner and judging by the the game camera pics. It took them 4 days of messing with it to rip the spinner off my feeder. I went to fill the feeder 1 day after they tore it off. Needless to say, I had to buy a new spinner set up.

Add some 4" PVC on legs, that will help also.
