We have one of the triples, it advances much more smoothly than the Siemens feeder and is easier to load. It is a well designed feeder, the drive mechanism uses some kind of plastic gears - but we haven't had it long enough to know if how well they wear.

Hey Brian how are you doing? We also have one of these feeders and it works great! The best feature is the being able to reverse the feed wheel to backfeed parts. Just talked to the guys at Hover-Davis yesterday and they have had feeders in service for 7 yrs. now with no problems with the plastic feed wheel.
