    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    When I was a kid, I used to pass by a Union Carbide factory on my way to school that handled plastic pellets. If I recall correctly, they came in covered hoppers similar to what you see cement in these days.

    Any 4 bay hopper, with that style of discharge should work fine. I like the Walthers ones myself, but you can use any.
