We would go through 100 pounds of sunflower seeds every 1-2 weeks.
After installing over 3 weeks ago, we have barely put a dent in our 100 pound bag. Instead of having to fill daily, I only have to fill the white feeder ever 3 days. The others are much less often.
I enjoy the squirels, and have to scatter for the Morning Doves anyway. But at least I now control how much the squirels and chipmunks get.
It is basically a big screw on the bottom of the post. You pick a spot... not over any gas, electrical, water or septic... etc... call diggers hotline and have them mark if in doubt... because it screws down into the ground pretty far. You need 1 strong person, or 2 people. Lol
Thanks for an awesome product! I highly recommend to everyone!
Update: September 1, 2019
The squirels and racoons officially hate us!
We will be getting another next Spring so we can hang a couple extra large platforms for our timid Morning Doves. They use our current hanging platform, but have difficulty getting on it.
No more squirels intimidating them and the other birds.
Cleaning it up each year and applying some Rustoleum paint will be a pleasure after all the peace and happiness this has brought us and the the birds.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Update October 2019:
The deer are standing on their hind legs and eating the bird seed out of the feeders. The only one they cannot eat the seed out of is the mesh style feeder.
We also realized we will have to keep the snow clear from around it a good distance to keep the critters from easily accessing the feeders.
Still loving it.
I read many reviews and saw the recommendations to spray the pieces with rustoleum and definitely did that as soon as it arrived. It is easiest if you have a place to hang the poles to dry, I used shepherd hooks I already had outside. The only hard to spray piece is the one that holds the squirrel stopper itself.
Once it was dry I was able to assemble it myself and the directions were very straight forward and clear. You will want to make sure the post that goes into the ground stays level. The first time I twisted it into the ground it went slightly skewed and I didn't even notice until I attached the next pole, so make sure you have a leveler with you as well.
The hooks are great and evenly spaced. The poles are well supported with the brackets and it holds some of my very heavy feeders. You do want to make sure that the weight is even on each side or it will lean a little bit.
My complaint is really just an oversight on my own part. I did not take into consideration that although it will hold many feeders, the type of feeder plays a big part into how you can hang them. For example, I could not hang two larger traditional feeders (like those with roofs) side by side as they would knock into each other. For my preferences, a traditional and a long tube feeder would be better. I ended up doing suet and tube feeders in combination with the traditional feeders so that I could still see all the birds. BOY did I start seeing the birds. While hanging the feeders I had birds trying to land.
As for its stopping abilities. I have sat and watched squirrels try time and again to get up the stopper and they simply cannot. It would also appear that at some point the raccoon tried and was also unsuccessful since I found some surface scratches on the stopper that are too large for a squirrel. So far the rustoleum is holding up and even with the Florida rains, the parts show no signs of rusting.
(2) The two arms could have been longer so the inside feeders wouldn't be as bunched together so tightly - I'll have to get thinner feeders to those spaces. Having 8 in such a small perimeter makes it all too jumbled -- I may end up with only 4 feeders (defeats the purpose of getting one to accommodate 8).
(3) The 8 tiny hooks for the hangers are very fragile - I don't know they will hold up over time; they could have been made thicker - stronger.
(4) The baffle pole just sits over of the pole below it and the pole above just sits over the baffle pole -- no screws holding them to be secure. Anyone could easily just raise a pole and remove it with no problem -- not sure that this is a positive thing -- wouldn't have taken much to secure the poles (the baffle works with springs inside so that wouldn't make a difference if the poles were more secured).
(5) The slim baffle looks much better than those big round ones -- this is a positive!
(6) Make sure when adding feeders, with heaviest ones, balance out the weight on all sides
(7) This is a large feeder pole, very attractive and so far, the curious squirrels haven't found a way to get to the feeders.
(8) It's pricey but if this resolves my issues of squirrels jumping to the feeders and keeping birds from eating, it will be well-worth it and will give recommendations to my friends and neighbors.
