I have had terrible luck with BA Products. I have had 2 short out in 2 years. Biggest pieces of carp I have ever dealt with. I would get a Moutrie but they are 6 volts. Who makes a good 12v timer?

Strange, I hear a lot of complaints about timers going bad but I have never had a problem. I have been using an Academy Game Getter timer for nearly 5 years and never had a problem. I bought an extra one just in case and never had to use it.

I've only used the On Time Elite. This will be my fifth season using this one. They take 10 AA batteries. I change batteries twice per and I feed all year too.

I am beginning to think that the motor has some problem that is shorting out the timers. Brother is going replace the motor. I suggesting load testing the current motor to see if it is pulling too many amps or something. We have an EE on the lease and he has not figured it out.

HCR, sent one in after 11 years, they repaired it for me....put in new battery clip. $2.00 charge can't beat that.

Texas Hunter makes a very good timer. Been using them for years with no problems.

All seven of our feeders have Texas Hunter timers. We have been using them for years and as long as the feeder stays upright and the coons don't tear them up, they last a long time. We probably average having to buy a new one every year to year and a half (because the feeders don't always stay up right and coons are @$$h0!e$ bang) they are only $99 when we do need a replacement. Plus they are very user friendly and can feed up to 9 times a day. I am not real sure why someone would want to feed 9 times a day, but if you so desire...
