Can I reach the bottom?
The front height of our feed bins is 850mm (includes castors), this is identical in height to a 44 Gallon Drum, However the floor will be raised a 100mm. A good way to test your reach is to put your arm in a 44 Gallon drum, if you can reach the bottom with a scoop you are good to go. Alternatively if you don't plan on moving your feed bin, the castor wheels can be removed.
Do the walls bend/bow?
No, the walls are braced and the feed bins are designed to comfortably hold 200kgs of feed.
Are they completely sealed?
Yes, all Millennium Feed Bins come with a 24mm cushion seal that prevents water and dust from entering the bin.
Are they easy to fill?
As easy as filling a 44 Gallon Drum, a little more care needs to be taken if filling a divided compartment as they are narrower than a standard drum.
Do they come in other colours?
Yes, Millennium Feed Bins can be custom ordered in a variety of different colours, any custom colour order will incur a $80 custom fee.
