Anyone use them? I have 2 and they used to work fine, now I am not sure if they are working or not. I never hear them go off (100-120 yards away) one of them seems to go through a lot of corn (3-4 bags a week or 2), the other one uses very little (half bag a week or 2). They both throw if I do a test. Both barrels are low enough that deer can eat from the spinner plate and I see them in person and on camera eating from the one that I have to fill more.

Used them for years. Had to watch make sure spinner brackets didn't drop open up gap. Spray spinner spindle with wd40, time sensitive on timer. Liked them with all in one. Solar panel seems to get funky looking on top. Bought several extra just in case when on sale then took back bad ones.

If I was still using 6v, I'd have a sunslinger. We bought 4 in 2004-05, all ran 10+ years. Mine was running when I gave it away. Over 10 years I replaced the spinner motor once and added a small solar panel when the built in one got weak. For $60, it ran better than any other 6v we had over the years for sure.

The solar panel is too close to the spinner, when the solar panel is wet from condensation or rain and the feeder goes off, the solar panel is caked with corn dust. Got rid of mine.

They are hit or miss. I put two out back in February. One is still running fine, but the other kept factory resetting itself after a few days and deleting my feed times. I replaced It with a “The timer” setup. Sucks to drive 4 hours to fill feeders and find out you haven’t been feeding.

This too. And they’re shaped weird so a regular varmint cage won’t fit without cutting it.
