Does anyone know roughly how much corn per second a feeder set at medium would be throwing? Specifically a game winner motor/timer. I know there’s no way to account for variables but just looking for a rough idea.
I was thinking maybe 1lb per 2 seconds might be about right, what are y’all thoughts?

On 4 seconds two times a day = 2 lbs. a day = 60 lbs. a month per feeder. IIRC

AH, so way less then. Is this on the timers medium setting?

In the off season I try to set the feeders to throw a bag a week. Although all of the feeders have their own personality, 3-4 seconds twice a day is about right for 50 pounds a week for ours. That is about a pound per second and with the top of the spinner plate about even (or a bit lower) with the bottom of the hopper funnel.
This is All Season feeders, I do not know how they compare to Game Winner

It depends on how you have the spinner plate height set.

Easy to figure out how much your feeder throws.

Get a bag big enough to cover motor/box/ spinner to catch all corn thrown.
Set timer to spin 10 seconds, capture corn thrown in bag.
Weigh corn in bag, divide by 10 = how much corn thrown per second.

An empty cattle lick tub works well also.

As noted it depends on settings and height of spinner plate. I generally go through 250# or 5 bags every 70 days per feeder. I set on medium speed, for 8 seconds in off season 2 spins a day. That translates to about 1.8 lbs a spin. First time I've calculated but I think it's close

thank you sir. Ill guesstimate 2 seconds based on all the above to be safe.

Unload a 50# bag with a coffee can or similar container. Do the math. Catch the corn off the feeder in test cycle in a 5 gallon bucket ( works for me). Transfer caught corn into container. Estimate or weigh it.
