I spent most of the day wrenching on the old forage wagon. Ugh. I'm thinking the further I can stay away from bearings, grease zerks, chains, and shear bolts the better off I am. A few extra trips with the home made nifty feeder is sounding better all the time.

This might be way bigger than what you had in mind.

This is the only photo I have of the "Pellet Puker" my son built. It has a gas operated power pack to run the hydraulic motor. Used all new materials and he isn't cheap. Cost $3000. It holds 3000 lbs of grain screening pellets, would hold more weight of a denser product like DDG's. The only change I would make is a 6 inch auger instead of the 4 inch we installed. You have to be in 4 wheel low to make a big enough row.

Oh, and drive in a circle when you feed them....... :wink:

Neighbour built a big feeder out of an old air seeder cart. Holds lots, and was super cheap to build. Not sure if he pulls it with the truck or not.
