Who uses one and could answer a few questions? I'm considering starting protein again. In the past, I lost so much to coons that I'm considering a timed feeder.

I use the Krivoman feeders with hammer timers. Have had them 5 years & they work great. I have them open at 6 AM & close at 6 pm. My protein loss to coons disappeared.

That's what I was hoping to hear. I was considering All Seasons, I believe it operates differently. I've just started looking into these. Thanks.

You will still have a coon problem just not to the same degree. Lamco, Ranch King, Outback, and All Seasons all make them. All do the same but look a bit different with prices to match.

With the All Seasons, looks it could be set to dispense once, at say 0630, 12 lbs and you'd be good for about 6 weeks. I am leaning in this direction.

A buddy of mine uses the all season & has been happy with them.

I’ve got 2 Lamco’s, been flawless for the 1.5 years I’ve used them. In fact, just picked up 3 Lamco stand & fill 600 lb corn feeders to replace 3 turds I bought a while back. Design and functionality can’t be beat.

Only thing to remember is the footprint is absolutely huge….way bigger than I imagined. No big deal until it’s time to trailer them.

The folks at Lamco are great to deal with too.

We are running three of the Ranch King Mighty Buck 1K protein feeders. Been solid and reliable.

If anyone is interested, I have a 900 lb. Crossfire timed protein feeder I would sell. They make these in Cross Plains.

Filled it once, and couldn't bring myself to do it again!

Brand new ,was around $950, bought last year. Would sell for $700

Crossfire website says Uvalde. Do you have any pictures, I assume it's in Mills county, and any chance you'd meet me in Brady with it?

If I have the right "Crossfire", I assume it's the one on their website that dumps into a trough, looks like the trough is about 2&1/2' off the ground?

Could be wrong that they make em in Cross Plains. I bought it from J and L Sales in Brownwood. They make some of their blinds and feeders in Cross Plains, but maybe not this brand??

I looked at the website and this one does look just like it, so your measurements are good. And I believe it is 1000 lbs, not 900 as I said initially.

Yes, in Mills County...about 15 miles north of Richland Springs. I could meet you, but I'll have to wait til I get some help to load the feeder. I can get you some pictures next week.

Ranch King for me. Have been great so far for 2 1/2 years. I use their corn feeders too.
