Rated 5 out of 5 by pickles2 Easy to use Product is fine. The only thing you do not mention that you have to have a special size battery to fit this unit which I had to order from American Hunter. The 6-volt battery I ordered from you will not fit this unit. July 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by cigar101 bullet proof I have bought 3 over the last 7 years and all are still in operation, I run my feeder year round in the florida sun rain and hurricanes and bears. Bears have destroyed 3 barrels but the SunSlinger still works. Solar panel keeps the battery charged and the timer has amazing amount of control over the feeding settings, schedules. I does take about 5 minutes to set it up the 1st time. July 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by OrlandoMgr game feeder The sunslinger is the best value out there. As all my other feeders have wore out we have replaced every station with this unit. The're super reliable and extremely easy to program. My buddies and I swear by them. No more messing with battery changes. June 30, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by RNOR Sold on Sunslingers I own 7 Sunslingers some over 7 years old. I haven't had a failure yet. The original design was solid and I like the timer improvements over the years. Some of my Sunslingers have had impressive abuse and still function fine after some paint and body work. The economics make sense. Original investment then very little maintenance for years. I could go on and on. June 2, 2010
