I have two of them and have been pleased with them. I would recommend you stake them down as they are thin metal and if they get knocked over will warp out of shape pretty bad. I do think they are a step up from the plastic Remington type feeders. Mine have been running for 2 1/2 years with no issues (other than hogs knocking one over and me spending an afternoon bending it back in shape)

We have had two of them running for several years (5 I think) we knew to T-post them down good and have not had problems with them except..... get rid of the alligator clips and use a good quality butt connector AND the solar panels that were designed for them (but were an additional cost) both stopped working after about two years.

Hope that helps, they are worth the price when not on sale IMO.

Looks like you get what you pay for. Better have a good pen around it or hogs will destroy it for fun and feed.

Had two of them up for a few years and the pigs have not damaged them. I have a T-post on all three legs....

Just bought one a week ago, went to set it up on Friday and found that I was missing the center section on all three legs. The legs are 3 pieces, They packed 6 of the tops Sections and three bottoms. The number they provide in the manual for customer service is useless, they refer you to the Chinese manufacturer.
After talking to three different reps. They are shipping the center section in 5-7 business days.
I have two of the GW 300 lb. box type feeders that have 4 legs on skidded that have worked flawlessly since putting them up in the summer. I secured them with a t-post and have not had any issues with hogs knocking them over even though there are plenty of muddy hoof and nose prints on the box.
The varmint cage is solid too.
The silo comes with a double thick varmit cage, which looks stronger than the one on the box feeders.
