American Hunter RD-Kit Feeder Timer Kit
i use two of these timers. people on other reviews say that corn gets stuck in the spinner. fact is , if you use a solar charger (like i do) or full batteries it slings corn like nothing else. also a little ingenuity would keep critters from tearing them up. i mean you are putting these feeders in the woods adapt to the situation. i love american hunter feeders and timers, great deals and good products. if you are just a little smart with how you use them and take care of your stuff you to will be satisfied. these timers really are great to use , just take care of your stuff!

Not Very Good
I have been using this feeder for about two months and I cannot get the timer to consistantly work. I think the corn gets the unit stuck. I can hear the timer click on and off but no spin. I think this product is junk and not worth the money.

I had the analog version for about 4 months. It worked ok until some raccoons demolished. I think I had a little bit older version that had real thin plastic posts where the feeder part of it is. All 4 posts broke. It was definitely from raccoons because I had a game camera up and slowly watched them break it.
Also, out of the 4 screws that hold the feeder to your bin, 2 of the insert in the plastic were broke.
So the feeder itself worked fine, but too much plastic. It won't take any abuse. I recommend getting a different model with metal posts.

60 Dollar Give Away
I had the analog version of this feeder and was very happy with it for a few years. For Christmas 2008 I recieved the digital version as a gift and finally got around to swapping the units out in Mid-February 2009. By mid-April 2009 (2 months) the motor on the digital unit would barely turn fast enough to spit out corn and then would not turn at all a few days later. I reinstalled my analog unit and have had no problems since. I would stay away from this product!
