How many extension hoppers can I run on my Ryedale?
People often ask about the extension hoppers. The “coin cup” on the machine serves as the first hopper, holding about 700 pennies. An extension hopper is a simple square unit that sits on the coin cup, held on with gravity and the weight of the coins. It holds about 700 more coins. It also has a baffle plate installed in it to “bear the weight” of the coins so they do not load the feed wheel directly. I personally run two on my machine, this way I can keep busy with other activities such as bagging zinc, unwrapping raw stock, or just marveling at speed of the machine.
