Anyone seen this yet? Seems like an interesting concept if you could stake it down good enough.

Only issues I see is as you mentioned tipping over, the other is I don’t see a solar panel. You can attach legs to get it a little higher but still be a stand and fill and stake the legs down. Also not sure what switching out the motor would entail.

They should have made legs that face out horizontally and you wouldn’t have to stake it down.

Have to get on your knees to set the timer. There's a company previously mentioned that sells a better design but I can't remember the name right now.

I like it. Most feeders need to be staked down. Just drive two t posts next to it, wrap wire around it and you're there. Deer hunters are resourceful, I see a lot of ways to add solar and elevate it

Put it in a feed pen and no need to stake it down. I looked at these(online)about 2 months ago....my only concerned was with rainfall and getting moisture inside the opening causing it to rust quicker.

In a pen, I'd still drive one t post and wire it up. A few hits with a t post driver and in less a minute it's done. I might just have to get one of these for a hog set up.

If you are in an area without rocks then the 4 stakes that come with the feeder will hold it down inside a feed pen.
