Have five that are going on 11-12 yrs old. Very few issues, and when they do arise, call ON TIME, discuss issue, send them about $6.00 for shipping and handling, and they send you the new parts free of charge. They stand behind there lifetime warranty. Easy to program, easy on batteries(one set will run unit for a year or close to it), plus very reliable. Paid $80-$90 apiece for them, but worth every penny. Would buy no other brand. My .02 for what its worth.

That's what most of mine are. I've had to rebuild a couple from time to time, but it isn't hard to do. I send them the dead parts and they send new parts. It costs me the shipping of the dead parts. Batteries do last a very long time - far longer than any other corn thrower I'm aware of. I keep a working spare, so there's never any long downtime.

Ok, errored in my first reply, sort of. Have five, but only four are used every yr as feeder motors. Four used are all analog, have a dial clock, like a wall clock. #5 is a newer style, digital unit got from a friend in a swap. Makes a good backup unit on the analog, but have only had to use it once when a trigger(limit switch) went bad on one of the analog units(which ON TIME, replaced, for only shipping). It is easy to set, has been very reliable and makes a good spare. It only requires 10 AA batteries, as the analog units use 11, 10 for motor operation, and one for the clock(just like a wall clock) . Usually only run our feeders about 6 myths a year, but check each unit operation every yr for at least a month in the shop, before installing and filling feeders for hunting season. Again, just my .02 worth.

I hd one way back in the early 90's, it ran until I gave it to a friend when we moved (at least 8 years) Have had the same luck using the "Sunslinger timer, the one I have now is 12 years old. I have friends that got me into the Sunslingers that have ran longer with just minor issues (battery changes and spinners)
