Been thinking about getting an electric thrower, possibly a do-all brand, they seem to be a good value . Any suggestions

The Do-Alls are nice. Except for the trap house and a few others all of our traps are Do-All at the club up here.

We have a lot of different ones. I think we only have one automatic Do-All, not sure on the model. I know we have several of the ones with seats and quite a few standard single throwers.

This may just be my experience, but the smaller Do All automatic throwers seem to be extremely underpowered. I had bought a Whitewing at Cabela's and the electric motor could barely cock the arm with the spring tension as low as possible. Exchanged it for a different one and had the same problem. Now I have a Champion Easybird Double and I'm really happy with it. The machining quality is much nicer, the motor is very fast, and it throws doubles.

Why not look at a good used machine. The Winchester-Western Self Loading Skeet Machines - Model V1574 and like models where produced in great numbers and parts are easy to come by. Now that every club is going to high capacity target machines , you maybe could pick one up for a decent price.

Ive had 2 red do all auto and the motors went out b4 a box of clays went through either. the company sent me a white one and it works really good. throws it about 65-70 and i cant slow it down anymore. may have to call but the company really doesnt seem to mind sendin a brand new one anytime they break
