GQF MFG Digital Sportsman Cabinet Incubator 1502

Average User Rating:
4.66667/5,
  • The No. 1502 “SPORTSMAN” incubator offers an accurate digital thermostat with LCD display of Temperature and Humidity. An on-board computer monitors systems and the environment every second to keep itself updated and to share this data with you. Electronic egg turning control, audio/visual indicators and a standard easy view door highlight a number of standard features. The No. 1502 “SPORTSMAN” is a complete incubator and hatcher. In addition to having three automatically turned racks, it has a hatching tray in the bottom of the incubator. So if you are just getting started with a small flock, all you need is this one incubator. Set the eggs each week or so and then hatch the oldest setting eggs at the same time. Settings are rotated among the three turning trays so that the hatching tray can accept the eggs from one of the setting trays each cycle. Constructed from high strength plastic board making it well insulated, quieter, and easier to clean.

    "love it!"
    Pros - Easy to use, easy to clean, very reliable! true set and forget
    Cons - Control box is all the way on the rear of one side.... makes it more difficult to reach
    I have 3 of these units. The oldest has been pumping out chicks for me for 3 years now. They are excellent. The settings are intuitive. The operation is simple yet effective. I have never had an issue. I did have to adjust the calibration of my oldest unit initially by .3 degrees but that's minor. I called GQF, left a VM and they called me back with instructions within 2 hrs. I would recommend this unit to anyone.

    I also have Dickies and Brinsea. I have no complaints on either, but the GQF is my go-to!

    "A Nice Incubator"
    Pros - Easy to use, Steady temperature and humidity,
    Cons - Price, bottom tray can be slippery
    We wanted a nice sized incubator, that was easy to use, and would keep a steady temperature in our old house (in which the temperature isn't steady). I have been very impressed! This incubator is very easy to use, clean, and I am yet to have a poor hatch. If it's fertile...it hatches!

    The bottom tray can be slippery after washing, which can damage the chicks legs. To prevent this from occurring, I use non-slip rubber matts. These matts are often used for kitchen drawers, and can usually be found at local hardware stores.

    GQF makes hatch drawer liners, that solve the problem of the slippery hatch drawer.
