This video will review the deer feeder motor of boss buck feeders and compare the difference between 12volt and 6volt setups. We will review our experience after upgrading 3 automatic deer feeders to Boss Buck Feeders (12V) over 1 year- ago. Since installation, we haven’t had one jam in any of the 3 deer feeder motors and the deer feeder batteries maintain 100% charge (using solar) making these maintenance free deer feeders! This isn’t our experience with 6 volt deer feeder setups. We experienced many jams from the smallest of debris left in the corn (even after filtering). We also experienced constant maintenance with the 6 volt deer feeder battery even though it was hooked up to solar. We found it hard to find 6 volt solar panels large enough to maintain a full maintenance-free charge. This is not the case with a 12 volt deer feeder battery as 12 volt solar panels are plentiful on the market in many shapes, sizes, technology, and prices.
We found the 12volt deer feeder motor in the Boss Buck Feeders to have a lot more torque, less power consumption, and a farther throwing distance than our 6 volt setups. We also found that a 12 volt deer feeder motor setup has many more options when it comes to 12 volt batteries (shapes and sizes), 12 volt solar options and motor replacement parts.
In our experience, it is cost prohibitive to maintain 6 volt deer feeder motors. After replacing burnt motors, doubling up on 6 volt batteries, and buying under-powered solar products we could have upgraded to 12volt deer feeder motors like our Boss Buck Feeders 3 times over.
Now that we have upgraded to our 12 Volt deer feeder motor we will never look back. We wish we would have started out with 12 volt setup’s from the beginning. Our three automatic deer feeder systems are now totally maintenance free and now we can spend more time hunting!
