It is designed to feed from 1 to 12 times in a 24 hour period. Feedings may be scheduled within minutes or hours of each other for larger amounts. For Example: set the feeder to dispense 5 cups of grain at 8:00 A.M., and an additional 1 to 5 cups of grain at 8:05 A.M. simply by setting the clock accordingly. Once times are set, feeder will dispense each day at these times until settings are changed.
Quick Feed dispenses food automatically. Simply install 2 AA batteries (included) for battery backup, plug into a 110 volt electric outlet OR attach to a 12 volt battery (with optional battery adapter.) Begin by setting the digital clock to the correct time, program the times you wish to feed (up to 12 times) along with amounts, (5 amount choices) and fill with food. Food will be dispensed day after day at the times and amounts chosen.
Easy mounting. Mounts in or outside of stall. The hopper has pre-molded mounting screw holes in the back of the hopper. (Enclosed spout adapts to 2" PVC to deliver feed through the stall wall)
Quick Feed will dispense dry cat or dog food, pellets, and grain products. It is not designed to dispense any food product larger than large chunk dog food or pellets longer than one inch in length as it will stop the rotation of the cylinder, thereby damaging the motor. For farm animals, sweet feeds with wet molasses have a tendency to bridge above the dispensing mechanism not allowing the feed to drop down into the chute.
