Good product.

Date:November 27, 2012
Has been working great. Upon receiving, I went to our local hardware store and bought 4 one inch long nylon spacers and 4 longer screws to replace the half inch long spacers and screws which come with the feeder. Changing these allows more room for the rice bran to come out. I also did not like the way it sets so low to the ground(has to be to keep bran from blowing though), thus causing the legs to be close together. I attached a piece of sheet metal underneath the outlet and screwed it to 2 legs. This metal is angled outward and directs the rice bran towards the outer edge, thus allowing deer with large horns better access to the bran. This is a great product and can be used without these improvements, but they definitely make it better! Even though I had to improve it, I gave it 4 stars, because it is a great idea and a real timesaver for those of us who feed bran.

Powder Keg

Date:January 20, 2011
I filled the hopper up and when it got about 1/4 empty it just stacked up on the sides and quit coming out. Also it is so low to the ground deer do not like getting under it. And if it is any higher off the ground the powder is blown away by the wind. Where I live, deer will usually eat 30 pds of rice bran in a day, it only holds about 50-60 pds. I think putting in on the ground is alot better than this feeder. I give it a one star just because it is a good idea. Dont waste you money.

For the hunter who has everything!

Date:September 30, 2010
I purchased this for my boyfriend who bleeds camo and safety orange and we LOVE it. It was easy to set up and easy to use. Even I can do it!! We like being able to control how much we can put out instead of just dumping it on the ground. Plus I called customer service at On Time with questions on what all this unit can feed(which is just about anything!!) and they were so nice and helpful! It was nice to get a real person and not a recording. The only down fall is the now my dad and brothers want one to for christmas!!!!!! And we are looking into purchasing more.

The feeder will work fine if you add about another 1/2 inch spacer between the bottom of the barrel and the despensing plate at the bottom. The factory spacer in my opinion just does not let enough product to fall out when the motor is turning. You will have to add longer screws for added spacer.
