12V 10A power supply???

Where can I get a DC 12v 8-10 amp power supply that plugs into a 110 outlet?

I have a ranch project that requires enough power to operate a 12 v motor (deer feeder motor). Usually these motors are powered by a 12v 8Ah battery. My project requires constant power to the motor. I need a power source that plugs directly into a 110 outlet that will push at least 8-10 Amps.

I have used a 2amp power supply but it is not pushing enough amps to the motor. The low amp is causing a delay and the motor starts off spinning too slow before it speeds up to its full capability. When I plug the motor to the 8Ah battery the motor fires up hard and fast. I need a power supply that will get the motor going immediately without delay.

...the motor is spinning small protein pellets...when the motor kicks off hard and fast the pellets are dispensed properly....when the motor has the delay and slowly begins to spin then the pellets jam the motor and the pellets are not dispensed at all....

thanks for your help!!!!

Use a battery charger.

Battery charger will do but you'll need to have it hooked up to a battery to trick it into charging mode otherwise it wont supply 12v. When the battery is fully charged then it will be supplying the power. A computer power supply will also work. You get ground, +3.3v, +5v +12v, -5v and -12v. Some of those terminals have more watts than others, but the 12 will definitely give you 10 amps or more.
