That all depends on how close you have the spinner to the down spout. In my experience, I will get around 1 lb for a 3 second throw.

Hold a five gallon bucket under it and run the test.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

It can vary greatly. It all depends on how far the spinner of the motor is from the hole the corn comes out of.
The best and easiest way to truly find out is to set it off while holding a 5 gallon bucket over the motor. Then
weigh the corn and divide by the number of seconds that you ran the motor and that will tell you how much
you are throwing per second.
Or you can count them. One pound of corn consists of approximately 1,300 kernels. LOL, I would weigh them,
but then, that's just me.

Likes been posted already it all depends on the battery and the distance the plate is from the funnel. I have 29 series marine batteries on my feeders with roughly a 3/8” gap and I throw about a pound a second. Mine will throw approximately 15 yards in each direction and I throw 8-9 seconds each time.
Use a bucket and set it off to measure it, I feed a lot clap but I keep a ton of pigs around to blast to lol
