Telescoping post upgrade for the X-Base and Stake Mount 40 lb. or 80 lb. capacity CoopWorx Feed Silo.
Allows you to adjust the height of the feed ports 13", 15.5" or 18" off the ground.
Note: If you see any feed on the ground raise the height of the feeder to minimize the drag-out.
The new post top part is shorter than the old one I had. It would not hold me feeder steady so I had to
Unscrew the tops and swap them to get it to work for me. For the price it seems unnecessary and should have at least been explained. I did manage to get it working though and I’m glad I can raise it now.
Hi Nicole, thanks for the review, I am sorry you had a problem with your telescoping post. If I had known there was a problem I would have been glad to send a replacement.
You are correct, the center post cone on the inside of the original CoopWorx was taller, however we made our new mold we shortened it so it would make a stronger part when the body was rotomolded. I wasn't thinking about you having the older model with the longer tube on top when I sent your new telescoping post.
I am sorry for the inconvenience, please let me know if you need anything else.
All the best,
These Post were very easy to install and having the ability to raise the height on our Feed Silo made it even easier for the Chickens to eat the Feed. And one thing didn't change. The Feeder provides clean, dry food and there is ABSOLUTELY NO WASTE.
