anyone ever build or buy a hopper funnel that would allow me to pour coal into a hitzer 503 hopper. Currently, small crumbs of coal fall onto the lip requiring me to clean up before I put the lid back on and at extreme temperatures I'd rather be over and done with faster. Also with a funnel I would be able to rest a 50 lb plastic bag briefly while pouring the coal in and eliminate a scuttle/bucket load up.
Attached are samples of what I have in mind - unfortunately these are for concrete mixers - I think aluminum would do but an off the shelf solution would be even better but I'll pay to have one made if I need to.
thanks in advance for any suggestions/experiences
