We have the one step also. In theory it sounds good, but in reality it throws you off balance when stepping on it to throw the rock. We ended up spending more and got a battery operated one. Costs a lot more, but is great to use. Load a stack of rocks and just press the foot/hand switch. You can add a rotator or wobble at any time.

I have a Do all trap Double thrower the has a 3/4 cock and is their professional series...That can throw almost any type of clay...rabbits...etc. I was about $170 IIRC but it works really good has a seat and a 2" square tube for a reciever hitch...two differt arms which you can send 4 clay birds at the same time or one 2 seconds behind the other. Here is a picture of it behind my daughter...sorry that is the best picture I have right now. Have better ones at home.

I also have the Do All 3/4 cock thrower with the seat, and it works great. It reduces the cocking force by quite a bit, and the seat is a real plus for the person throwing the birds. It has a lot of flexibility for the angle and height of the birds. The only thing easier would be one that is battery powered.

I have used all those that have the legs that you push into the ground, and they all suck. This is the best one I have ever used... Easy to cock under no tension at all, an you step on the lever to throw, so it stays put.

I ended up buying a DoAll and have spent the last two days modifying it. I'm going to mount it on my trailer deck bolted down on a new stand I built. Plus I changed out the hardware for all thumd screws so no tools are required. I drilled both pivot shafts for a grease zerks and installed a bicycle tube over the spring and adjuster. I will receive my base plate material today and will drill it for multiple patterns so it can be adjusted for aiming and it will still bolt tire a wheel. It should be good and solid/quiet sine it's all welded together(no bolts/frame pieces).

I received my shotgun back from Ruger, and the big shoot is planned for the 16th! I got the base plate done this weekend, it will bolt to anything.

I bought one about years back that was the least expensive (cheap) and mounted on a wheel and tire from a ton pickup. One idiot (me) cocking and loading then standing, load gun, pull cord and shoot. Do that 25 x's or more and you get a work out. I could handle 3 sets of that a day.

More better was the seated witha partner to trade off with. Eventually we found having a young and dumb along did wonders for our relaxation, until they grew old enough to realize.....

Reality of having a fully automatic self feeder at a range is the best, shame you get old before discovering the joy of that.
