Moultrie Pro Magnum Game Feeder Timer
Would have given it a zero if I could!!!
I bought this with the "Feeder Powerpanel". There is not a plug, to plug the power panel into. So I called Moultrie. Moultrie says my unit is not compatible, even though it says so on the box. Then they tell me I have a pre 2007 unit. Just purchased the unit (2014) in a store that's only been open a couple of years. But the box is a new box. The unit is also pre drilled for the plug, with rubber grommet, not so on the pre 2007 units. I was then told I needed to buy the power panel with alligator clips on it. But the only problem is the alligator clips will not fit through the hole. Moultrie does not support their products. And to top it all, they then told me "FYI there is only a two year warranty on the Pro Magnum Feeder Kit." The box says it has a Lifetime Warranty and the stores advertise it with a Lifetime Warranty. I would recommend a different brand of feeder. Now to what I actually got. The spinner plate fell off while attaching unit to the drum. I had to disassemble the varmint guard to put it back on. The screws are very cheaply made. I could not get the plate to hold in place with the screw that is with the unit. I was able to tap the hole and install an allen screw to repair this problem. Then to reinstall the varmint guard. There are 25 pieces to this. It wasn't so bad, you just don't need to be out in the field when doing it. Once again the quality of the screws is terrible. They will have to be replaced the next time it has to be taken apart. So far 2 1/2 weeks into the project and haven't spun the first kernel of corn through the thing.

Excellent Feeder Kit
After having this installed for a year, I can say that I am very satisfied with it. Since June 2010 it has hung in my hunt area, in Florida, in the swamp and has performed flawlessly. Since installation I have only had to change batteries two times! No other feeder I have tried has done this well. Raccoons and squirrels climb all over it and it has held up to the punishment. It has been out in the swamp for over a year now (stays out year round). Excellent product.

Not very durable
This feeder works well until subjected to SW Floridas wet summer;and then you can expect about a 30 day mortality. Either they are being penetrated by rainwater or the combination of
humidity and condensation defeats the design. In any event after a short while they start to experience electronic malfunctions.;such as erroneous battery readings and clock errors.

Used this feed for 2 months only and now a piece for recycling. I watched squirrls bend the cheap varmit guard and get in on the spinner plate. This bend the motor shaft and pushed the end out of the motor. If squirrls can do this to a "quote" Pro Magnum feeder what would coons do to it.
