Review: This hopper works very well, however, ive found that because of the high feed rate and straight agitator arms(you'll see), it tends to break paint far easier then other power loaders I have used. It more of pushes the paint around and the curved surface guides the paint rather then the arms feeding the paint themselves, resulting in common breaks inside the hopper, and this one isn't easy to clean out. (Very paint picky loader)However, this can be expected for the price of $90, compaired to $150+ on other loaders that feed at the same rate, and a good first try for KIngman Spyder. Just don't drop it because the feed neck snapped on mine when it fell into fairly soft dirt in the woods (it had just rained the night before).
Conclusion: I would say buy it if your looking for something with a high feed-rate, but you don't have much cash to spend, otherwise, save a bit more and go for a Halo loaders, as with this one, you will spend more then you might like on paint anyway to avoid regular breaks.
