There is no such thing as a fool proof deer feeder, they all break, I know. Your answer is this thing called a deer feeder helper; you can change your timers in 2-3 minutes. You spent 12-15 hours working when it could have taking you only 6 minutes.

I have been running the magnum 12v systems with solar panels for the last 9 years and have not touched them, I now have 4 of them on homemade tripod feeders....I have never even changed the battery in the first one....

Spin Cast or Smart Timers, my spin cast is going on 30 yrs old and I have changed the PC board cause of ants and the housing got damaged by some hogs that turned my feeder over once. Both trouble free!!

Itook the simple route andwent gravity feed. They are $20 bucks a pop at Academy. No batteries to replace and the deer get their corn. I've thought of switching over to the auto feeders, but don't see the reason to do so.
