American Hunter R-50 Pro Hanging Feeder
I bought this feeder 2 seasons ago and it is still working despite 2 bear attacks and dropping it myself and smashing the plastic cover on the bottom. The whole outside shell has been reconstructed including the bracket that mounts to the bottom of the bucket. Everything functions-motor, timer, battery despite the abuse it has been through.

R-50 Hanging Feeder
I bought one of these feeders, and absolutely drove me crazy. It does do the job but the timer will not go past the 4:00p.m. it just sits there. So every day i have go out in the woods and turn it past the 4 so it wil start to turn and make the correct time.

Great feeder for the money. Has a very long battery life and is very durable.

My son-in-law and I both purchased the R50 feeders and put them up in October. It is now past Christmas and they continue to work perfectly. During this time here in the Upper Penisula of Michigan we have experienced rain, snow, sleet, wind, and temperatures from the 70's to below zero. The feeders have worked flawlessly. The only thing we did different was to use Lithium AA batteries for the clock as they will withstand cold temperatures better than akaline. We'll be buying more R-50's next year.
