Has anybody used one of these? Walmart carries them and they're made in Austin.

They look to be built on the same idea as the Alamo Feeders and EZ Feeders at Bucc ees and the Rockin 2 Industry Feeders.

I'm just wondering how well built they are.

No experience here, but it looks like they have plenty of dealers. I'd go look at them. It should be pretty easy to tell how well they are built. They look good. It would depend on how sturdy they were for me to but one. The timer would make a difference as well. They look like the motor and timer are well protected and no exposed wires. Price is OK too.

I would recommend the Bucc-ee's feeder at $399 and 600# capacity. If you want to buy once/cry once, go with one for Ramball. You'll never buy another one.

I'm just wondering how well built they are.

we are running several of them and they are extremely well made... The buccees one lasted maybe a year and half before varmits chewed every hanging wire, even after we sleved in conduit several times.... Buccees is economical but not well built... If you can find a judge get one.. He only makes a certain amount each year..Cabelas use to have them free shipping...just had to call and ask for them./..

They are the modern design that you want being they don’t have a varmit cage that knocks half your corn to the ground in a pile......Alamo Feeders are the same design except they are built like a tank and you don’t have to assemble anything just back up your pickup and slide it out.....Roger runs adds in this classified section and you won’t find better customer service....

If you are anywhere near pflugerville you can get a better deal if you pick up at their warehouse. Reach out them directly and ask what you can pick one up for if you come to the warehouse.

They are good feeders but not as well made as Rockin 2, with that said Rockin 2 would make it through a cat 4 tornado.... so it defines over built and lifetime or 2

Personally I’d spend a little extra money and get 1k lb feeder.
