Was wondering if anyone has used the Spin Tech feeder with the drop down plate? If so what are some reviews on it? Think about buying one.

I bought 4 of them about 5 years ago and 4 of them still work great and one of them has caused me trouble all year long with not dropping down when it spins. But all in all I like them pretty good !

I've gone through two. Both times the spintech mechanism quit coming down and locking back up tight at about 18 months. So the varmints ended up cleaning feeder out. When this happens u can replace the mechanism . I would not buy them again. Much happier with my Texas Hunter Product 12 volt feeder. Three years, zero issues.

I have one 6volt that I used last year, no problems except it froze up in the ice storm. Really saves the corn from wind/varmints. Lets see about long term reliability.

I spoke with a feeder dealer and he sales both the Spin Tech and All Seasons control units. He told me that the he has known of the Spin Tech spinner to seizing up. If that happens one of two things is going to happen. Either the feeder isn't going to spin with it being stuck in the up position or stuck down in the open position. If the spinner gets stuck in the down position the feeder is going to empty all its corn at once.

If it were me I would buy the All Seasons Evolution control unit. It comes equipped with the Eliminator scatter plate.
I have one on my stand and fill feeder and couldn't be happier up

I have several of the Primos Vault's that use the same plate. I just spray them with lithium grease twice a year and have had zero issues.

I lubricated the two i had every other trip as well and they still eventually went bad. They are great when they do work with saving corn, longevity just not there. I'm lazy so I'm really not into feeder maintenence if it can be avoided. If you are the type that would be happy to replace the spring mechanism every now and then go for it, it is good for not wasting corn just will not go forever like a Texas Hunter Product or All Seasons.

Thanks for the feedback... I sure don't want a feeder that may not work most of the time. With my lease being 4.5hrs away in Ozona, I need to get a feeder that is pretty reliable. Currently I am using the Moultrie Pro-Magnum 6volt and it has worked without issue going on for 2 yrs. I wanted to upgrade to 12volt feeder. Have not had any real issues with coons, so I don't really need the drop down. I will be looking into the Texas Hunter or All Seasons..

I have run 4 of them the last five years and i have had zero issues. I mount a solar panel directly to the box and never had one seize up. Possibly because of constant high power not sure just speculation.

I have the drop down plate on my road feeder mounted on my lifted golf cart. It works great.
