  • Bigger or smaller hoppers?

    I'm getting requests for smaller ( 3" diameter tubes ) and larger ( 6" diameter tubes ). I would like some feed back as far as improvements/changes needed or size changes bigger/smaller. Also are the ball valve and swivel being used or are most of you taking them off and using a direct air line or the control box regulator? Thanks...

    As far as size goes. I'm interested in a small hopper. Not so much the diameter, that part is perfect, just the height. The big opening is perfect for cleaning and filling. I just don't need 3lbs of powder all the time, most times I'm dealing with 1-2lbs at a time, so a hopper that's half the height would be PERFECT.

    The valve I like and plan on keeping. The swivel I can do without. I'm planning on removing it sometime over the weekend and hooking up a hose instead. It'll make things easier and take some stress away from that small area.
