General Information:

These cost effective feeders exemplify durability and ease of use. Two different discharge lengths are available including ED and XED. Our Signature Series friction feeders are powered by an 500 watt (one horsepower) brushless servo motor which is one of the best in the industry. This makes our feeders strong enough for the most demanding application, with the reliability to provide years of uninterrupted service.
