Treadle feeders are designed to prevent vermin from accessing feed.The mechanism is operated when a bird stands on the treadle, opening a hatch and allowing feed to trickle into the pan. This prevents surplus food from lying around and attracting vermin in the first place, the treadle is balanced so that it is only operated by a weight of more than 500g, so that even if a rat stands on the plate, it will not be heavy enough to activate it. The minimum activation weight also prevents feral pigeons and some smaller grey squirrels from feeding.
Made from galvanised steel, this long lasting feeder holds up to 40Kg of feed and is easily filled by removing the simple lid. Although it is not fully waterproof, it is robust enough to be used in a sheltered or semi-outdoor environment.
Size approx. 70 x 50 x 30 cms.
