I’ve been feeding the fish by hand for a few years now. It’s not been consistent and I often forget. Also, I have to call on someone when we go out of town for more than a few days. So, I decided that it’s time to put up a feeder since we’re going on vacation for a month soon. This is what I decided to do and how I constructed it. I hope you enjoy the build. This build would also easily feed corn to deer. It holds a lot of feed!

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent
On the funnel should of used insulation tape foam
Where did you purchase that feedcaster? I couldn't find it on Amazon ?or Hydroponic Gardener.
This is just the video I was looking for! Thank you!
That's a great job! Thanks
Looks like you could have just used a 2” shop vac fitting or plumbing fitting no melting required
Should be How to "assemble" a fish feeder, ANYONE can go out and buy the parts to "assemble" a feeder. Or anything for that matter.
You must not have raccoons, they would rip that top off in 3 seconds. They have ruined many a feeder of mine.
Where did you get the funnel
This was so much fun to watch. Thanks for giving the detail on it.
I love your paint job. It matches up perfectly with the whole view of your pond.
I wasn't expecting the food to go out as far as it did but your fish food flinger sure can fling that food!👍
Another fine engineered contraption. Looks like it does a heck of a job too. Pretty cool that it will do your work for you while you are gone!
Great video! I have been wanting a way to feed my fish while I'm away but never looked into it at all. I looked up FeedCaster and they have about a 5 gallon bucket version for less than $50. My fish are well trained by hand but this would give me the title of fish master.
What a great build video, that thing is awesome I especially love the paint job lol I sure was surprised to see how far That sucker throws the feed. I wonder How long that battery will last on one charge. How many times a day do you feed your fish? Thanks fur sharing your build video with us and as always keep building👍
Looks pretty sweet! I was shocked at how far that feed want! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
