The pallet change door at the back of the hopper is a great addition, but have you noticed how the wheel gets in the way for placing the bucket in the correct spot.

Well today I had some spare time so I made this chute that attaches to the hopper with some strip magnets, problem solved.

Edit: I thought I would share my plan if you are interested in making a chute.

Just what that chute needs! I missed this mod, very nice. It's now on my list of things to do.
 
good job... could do an easy one outta sheet metal too
 
I thought I would share my plan in the original post, if you are interested in making a chute. Assembled with Quick dry Super glue.

Thanks for sharing the details! as an RC modeler, I've got the materials around.
 
It was only yesterday when I had to switch pellets and spent 5 mins picking up all the ones that missed my bucket. Good plan, might have a go. (or drop in to pick up one :)
Edit: well I can't drop in anyway, have to wait 'till lockdown is over.
 
Here is my solution:

It is made from one of those plastic kitchen cutting mats you get in a 3-pack for 5 or six dollars. Some sticky back magnet strip and you are done.
Easy to store, too:
