I have an old Sweeny feeder in my shed that I;m thinking about taking to the lease for a hog feeder. 12volt motor works great but I need a timer. Will this one work?

The timer posted will work, but for around $60 you could get The Timer.

Have one that looks like that which is at least 7 years old. Good for the price.

I have two feeders with the timer the OP mentioned. They came with the feeder. I suppose they are maybe 5 years old and still working fine. If and when they die, I’ll probably replace them with The Timer.

HCR in Burnet makes a good one as well. You can get one for around $45.

That timer comes with several different brands on it, replaced the old analog timer in a 40+ year old Sweeney this year with one and it has not missed a beat. Have a few other feeders using that same timer and they work. Go for it

Been thru many timer brands since I started hunting in 98. Have had The-Timer but they were more trouble than they are worth.

Bought Magnum Hunting Products timers & have never had any trouble from them since 2003. They work like they’re supposed to.
