Rated 5 out of 5 by 0utL4w Great Feeder I purchased 3 of these feeders 2 years ago for deer feeders. All 3 still in great shape. I am about to purchase 2 more for my hog hunting season. The free Varmint zapper works great too. Theres nothing funnier than watchin racoons on trailcam stand there lookin like what was that after the zapper zaps em one times. June 8, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ericzink Poor Product This is a very bad design, I bought two of these when they were on sale. Both only lasted a few months before falling apart. The bracket that holds the legs are only spot welded and they rust and fall apart, also the metal is very thin. Spend the money on a better unit and you will be much happier. December 9, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by sporthunterflorida DO NOT BUY I purchased 7 of these with 3 buddies during the last fall sale. The analog timers are not going off they work sometimes and do not other times. we changed the batteries had no effect they worked 40% of the time. I would not recomend these to anyone. The varment guard will kill 6 volt battery in 3-4days with or without a solar charger. They all were the same way very undependable..... December 6, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jphick Terrible, just terrible I wanted a different feeder but they were out of that feeder so I wound up with this 1 instead. setup was easy, and everything is very sturdy. the problem is it only throws corn 8 feet, this is unacceptable I expected a lot more. so I returned it and ordered the 1 I really wanted. I would not recommend this product I was very very disappointed July 15, 2011

A:It seems to be that the motor is not strongh enough for all the tension that a full load puts on it. Mine did this all the time as well until the whole motor assembly broke off. They have a new motor and assembly that works better. I am not sure of the name but it is rectangular shape.
