universal digital feeder timer Jan 11, 2011
By Terry l. Fry
This digital timer is one of two common designs widely available to program multiple timed events per day, then select various days of the week to activate your application or device. I have use both design types for a variety of applications. Some pros and cons for this timer relative to the other --
Pros -- this timer runs off the same battery that powers the feeder motor, not a separate timer battery
-- the display in this version blanks itself after a few minutes of no user activity, reducing the ongoing current drain to about half of the alternate timer design
-- the display is the larger and easier to read of the two, and includes a battery charge level indicator which is useful, along with larger programming buttons
cons --- the output motor drive wires must both be isolated from the battery terminals, even though one might have expected the negative battery terminal would be internally connected to the negative motor drive, this is not true. If this connection is made external to the timer, the motor drive is active constantly, regardless of timer operation. The timer is not damaged, but is also not functional. I used an optoisolator to connect the motor drive to a load that needed to be referenced to the battery negative, and that worked properly.

Manufacturer did not honor warrenty but PW Enterprises did. Mar 11, 2010
By J. L. McNees
This review is in praise of PW Enterprises of Wichita, Kansas
I purchased a Tundra Quest digital feeder timer from Amazon via PW Enterprises on Jan 13, 2010.
The display screen on the timer has gone bad. 13 months after purchase. It was not abused or damaged in any way by me.
On the label and on the "manual" it says "2 year warranty" and to send the timer with $10 check for warranty repair. But there is no address given on either the label or the manual. The toll free number, 1-877-436-7177, says it is "no longer in service," the web site listed on both the label and in the manual of "tundraquestllc.com" is not active.
PW Enterprises stood behind the product they sold and is honoring the warranty even though the manufacture apparently is not.
I encourage everyone to buy items on Amazon that are distributed via PW Enterprises,

Great Feb 08, 2010
By J. A. Henry
Works great at a great price. Good price and has more features than other times that cost more. I like the way you can set extra times for the weekends.

Installed it in a Cabelas deer feeder and it's working as good as can be. Fast shipper and item as described.

TOO Much for Handling Fees !!! Apr 02, 2014
I've ordered the timers on the pretence that all the wonderful hunters out there were correct is there assessment of the "Universal Timer", thanks for your responces. The only problem I have is that I needed four and they wanted $6.00 handling for each unit and I talked to PWS Enterprises and they had no one that could correct the situation, so I ordered two and sent them an emailed them in hopes they could correct the situation, we will see. Most online business's will charge a reduced rate for the second exact item.
