Can anybody suggest a 12 volt timer and thrower. I already have a feeder and legs, just to upgrade from the 6 volt

I like Triple C feeders. They are made like a tank. Built in Burleson and good people to deal with.

No matter what you buy, keep this in mind, it can be upgraded. Here's what you want.
A box suitable to house a motors, battery, & timer.

A Motor 12 volt obviously, that has a 1/4" shaft. They are much beefier and gooder than te 1/8" small versions, that will mount under the barrel.

A 12 Volt gel cell battery, a solar panel can be installed on the back of the box to maintain the battery but is not a must.

A timer, ok here's where we all start acting like politicians or Ford vs. Chevy owners. There are some cheap ones for about $30.00 wildegame at academy and some gooder ones such as "The Timer" that run around $70.00 bucks I'd say.

With all that said, short of the box it can all be upgraded with very little work effort. I have units that short of having to replace the batteries once, have been in service for 15 years.
My Point is if you are on a budget go to academy and get you a $100.00 unit, in a metal box, and install it just make sure it has the larger motor. That and 12 volt battery and your done. You can always replace/upgrade the timer lter but that will get you started.
Oh yea make sure you put a good funnel in the barrel.

This coming season will be my 10th on my "All Season" feeder units. The only thing I have done is replace the spinner plates last year on each one. All parts are replaceable and easy to work with. Good luck!

The Timer, galvanized box, gold 12V motor, box-mounted solar panel, Eliminator plate, good 7aH gel cell battery. Good to go for years to come.

Texas Hunter Products. Been buying their kits for a very long time. Comes with everything to bolt onto your barrel. Get the solar panel. Very easy to program, I've never had a failure. These are built like a tank. I finally replaced the motor in one that I've been running for about 15 years.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Not cheap, but very well made and will last. Great customer service too. I had a timer that was 8 or 9 years old start acting up, so I took it in to ask about warranty/replacement. The guy told me it was not under warranty, but then he proceeded to take it apart and repair it. It was a bad connection on one of the wires. It's 12 or 13 years old now and still working like a champ.

on sale for $119 right now:

I have The Timer and do like it and also have a Texas Hunter timer that was about $30. and it has lasted 12 years. I would consider buying a box that is attached to the barrel by 4 bolts so I could make or buy one of the varmint plates you will see on some feeders. Eliminator spinner maybe.
