Throws corn great. I had a fairly well chronicled beginning. Couldn't get it to throw for 3 trips out, but ultimately was a bad battery and I was getting fooled by a faulty voltmeter to boot. Long story short, hooked it up with good battery and it has been chunking corn in a wide radius ever since. My only suggestion is to cover the motor on bottom so coons can't pull on the wiring. I screwed a $1.47 plastic flower pot over it and it works just fine. See very little difference in it and it's brother (All Season's Stand n Fill) that I paid $200 more dollars for.
