Being frugal, often involves creativity and the help of good friends.
We have been in need of a feeder wagon to store feed for our laying hens and pastured poultry. It is exciting to have our new recycled feeder wagon.
The tank is originally a water tank that has not been used at the ranch for
many years. The tank was then welded onto set of running gears. Inside the tank is an auger attached to the outside wheel for augering the feed into the awaiting buckets. The top of the tank has welded tire rims for a watertight seal and worn rubber tubs to cover the top and hinged with rubber hooks. The feed wagon can be easily moved using a four wheeler.
Many thanks to neighbors and friends, R and B for helping locate recycled
materials and welding expertise!
