The Solway Mobile Game & Poultry Feeder features a high torque 12vdc motor designed and manufactured in the UK. A wiring loom and handle bar switch allows selection of continuous or pulse feed for periods of up to 10 seconds. The feeder is designed to scatter feed along the length of each feed ride. Save time with careful planning of your feed route and see your birds become wilder with less wandering.
Use cleaned and sieved feed only. Stones and foreign matter will damage your feeder and void your warranty. Do not use liquid based attractants this will block the feed outlet. Powder attractants such as Solway GameMaster Spice and Bird puller can be used.
The unit doesn't restrict the use of a trailer and has quick release fasteners for speedy removal from the rack. The hopper has a recommended capacity of 60Kg maximum and is manufactured from strong polyethylene. The lid is designed to be easily lifted and incorporates an internal bungee and cord retainer. The spinner plate has raised rolled edges to help prevent spillage. The feeder scatters food approx. fourteen feet. The feed rate is controlled by a push button on the handlebars, enabling continuous or pulse feeding. The rate, based on using clean dry wheat, may be reduced when feeding a mixture of pellets and wheat .
The powerful 12vdc motor is powered from the vehicle's battery. A wiring loom and plugs are provided to fit most agricultural quad bikes. If you are fitting to a non standard vehicle, we can make a custom loom at additional cost.
The use of whole maize will require modification, please contact our sales or technical department for more information.
The hopper is attached to the ATV with sturdy aluminium toggle catches, enabling the feeder to be removed in less than thirty seconds.
New for 2022 All Mobile feeders from 2022 will be fitted with the new adjustable deflector plate, enabling directional feeding.
