Wondering if there were any better than the rest. Thought I had read somewhere or seen something on the tube about a brushless motor that would last longer than others but can't seem to find anything on it on the web.

[align:right][/align]The big motors with the 1/4” shaft and 2-pin SAE plug are better than the little ones with the 1/8” shaft in my experience.

For example:

I’m not aware of a brushless motor as they are more costly and require commutation electronics to drive them (unless it’s integrated into the motor). They generally do last a lot longer.

I use the 12 volt 1/4" shaft motors from West Texas Feeder Supply. They seem to work great for the most part, I did have 2 out of 30 or so crap out pretty soon after rigging up to some feeders. Most all of these motors come from the same place anyways

Yeah, they're just about all made in China. Just purchase from a reputable retailer and let them worry about supply quality.

As Ramball said go with 12 volt and 1/4" shaft no matter which brand they are the best.

We use “On Time” feeders, with life time warranty. Have five that are close to twenty years old, if not that old already. Have had a couple issues, emailed them the issue, they sent parts to repair, just had to pay shipping. Would never use another brand. Four are analog, and one digital,
