8N still looks good Colin!

Don't let that wagon push you down a hill!

We use a similar gravity box to store feed for calves.

We have a little wooden box with a tin floor we set under the door.

Set two 5 gallon buckets in the little box and open the door to fill them.

Then carry the buckets in to feed and empty the box in the feeder too.

Thanks, Royse! For not being shedded, I'm pretty please with the Van Sickle paint. It's fading but has held up pretty well.

No hills to worry about, thankfully. If you look closely, you can see a wooden box below the gravity box shoot. It's big enough to hold a bucket and about 150lbs of feed. I use a grain shovel to fill my buckets and then off to the chickens.

A little trick I use is clear enamel if the paint is still good but faded from being out in the sun to long. It's really amazing how much better a tractor will look if it has a little shine! A couple of spray cans will spruce up a tractor quite well.

Something that works for me

Took a couple pieces of 1X6 or 1X8, I forget which, angled the end cuts to match the angle of the chute to the bed, bolted them to a couple pieces of angle iron and bolted that to the chute, tapering it down from the door to 6" or so opening at the end of the chute...a feed funnel. Hopefully your chute is tall enough a 5 gal bucket will fit underneath.

While I still put my buckets in a washtub while filling, I don't have to clean up near as much feed.

Course you gotta unbolt them if you need to raise the chute.
