Off topic, but does that hopper have a lid or is it always open?
I'm 5-10 & have a good 4 or 5 inches on Charlie.
Yes, the hopper has a steel lid with gasket & it is always on except when filling.
I've seen him fill it before his invention. His stairway is (was) two steps. I'll measure his hopper height next time I'm there. I know one thing though, you do NOT fill it without a step or two up. If memory serves me right (but it seldom does LOL) the new hopper style is 10 inches shorter than the old style.
