Again not a real issue with me in this. Really like the option of running 2 batteries if ya want to.
Will this work with feed such as alfalfa pellets? Will depend on the size of the pellets. If it fits thru the hole/slot it will work I purchased a hanging feeder in July for $173.64. Now it is almost $100.00 more! Why? In Oct 2019 I paid $163, so we are pretty close. Not sure why the increase. Price increase from China? With the metal, lifetime spreader (squirrel proof), should never need to buy another if they are in business. Consider just buying the spreader and a 55 drum how long will battery last with 2 short feedings per day? Can't fully answer that question,.... but this is what I KNOW. At present My Moultrie Pro Magnum 30-Gal.,, Hanging Feeder. I am running 2 Moultrie Batteries in it,... I feed 3 times a day. I'm set at 2 feedings are 4 seconds and 1 feeding is set at 5 seconds. At present I have 92 % battery charge left and this feeder with the mentioned settings have been running for 35 days now. I'm saying the batteries are at 92% as this is what the feeder itself is telling me. Hope this helps ya out. So far I'm pleased with this feeder. Does it come with the metal hanging bar? It comes as shown. There is a bar running through the top, terminated with those loops you see in the photo. I hung mine between two pressure treated 10' 4x4's w/ a length of chain & locks on both sides to secure it. We later added a brace across the top between the vertices, to counteract the bowing stress caused by the weight of the feeder. We filled it by pulling up alongside it in a truck. Easy peasy. will this spread dog food or what size pellets will this spread ? size of hole / slot Moultrie feeders are designed to throw whole-kernel corn and other similarly sized feed. As long as your dog food contains feed that is close to that size, you will be able to use the feeder to spread the dog food.
