I was a little hesitant on buying this feeder based on some of the other reviews, but I went ahead and bought it anyway. After putting it together I put silicone on all the joints to keep moisture out. Its been up for about 6 weeks now and hasnt missed a beat. So far it has worked perfectly.

I own 4 of these. The batteries last 2-3 weeks before dying. I throw the timer away and install an all seasons timer and they last all year on one battery feeding twice daily 4-5 seconds. With that being said, the cost of the feeder is now $180.00. I do like the varmint guard and the funneled design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rlh43 Worst Feeder Ever
Last year I read the reviews and bought two of these feeders. I also purchased two solar panels supposedly designed to go with these feeders. The solar chargers are designed to mount to the side of the unit with the wiring running down the outside of the feeder to the battery compartment.
Two problems: 1) Unless you hang this feeder from a dead tree (a live tree would have too many leaves and would block too much sun light) branch as shown in the description picture, the feeder will spin in the wind and you wont get enough sunlight to the solar panel to maintain the charge on the battery. 2) Because the wiring is designed to run external to the feeder, the raccoons rip it apart. I had to drill into the side wall of the feeder, then the bottom of the feeder, then the spinner guard, and finally into the side of the battery box to reroute the wiring so critters would destroy it.
So here we are, less that one year old and both feeder motors are dead. Solar panel is charging, the battery is taking and holding the charge, and the timer is working. But the motors are frozen.
I have to say, these feeders were the worst purchases I've ever made from BassPro.
