Sutton Ag is the U.S. exclusive distributor of Zon bird scare cannons and accessories.

Zon Automatic Scarecrows have been used worldwide to scare pest birds and wildlife away from agricultural crops, airports, disposal sites and other critical areas since 1942.

The Zon EL08 Electronic Propane Cannon provides multiple and random sonic blasts to frighten and disoreint pest birds and wildlife.

Powered by economical propane, Zon guns are one of the most efficient means of bird control available.

Blast volume of approximately 130 decibels.

Economical operation
A full 20 pound (5 GAL) propane tank provides approximately 15,000 EL08 bird scare cannon detonations. Ignition produces more than 1 million detonations.

Virtually maintenance free
The only moving part on the EL08 cannon is the valve that controls the gas flow. No more broken springs to replace, no worn out diaphragms - less time in the repair shop means more time protecting your investment! Zinc-plated barrel (megaphone) on the Zon EL08 Cannon resists corrosion. Non-telescoping megaphone is resistant to wear and tear (especially when used on a tripod), and requires less maintenance than the telescoping barrel cannon.

Multiple blast capability
Electronic timer can produce 1, 2, 3 or 4 blasts in a series with approximately 5 seconds between consecutive blasts.

Programmable configuration
Blast intervals can be set between 1 minute and 60 minutes.

Random blast settings
Electronic timer provides 2 different random blast interval settings for the EL08 cannon (1 to 10, and 1 to 20 minutes).

(Older EL08 cannons are capable of 3 random settings: 1 to 5, 1 to 10, and 1 to 15 minutes).

Enhanced timer
There's no need to purchase a separate on/off timer. The EL08 cannon includes a 24-hour timer that can be programmed with up to 4 daily on/off periods.

On-demand ready
The Zon EL08 includes an auxiliary input for optional control by the Push-Button Zon Bird Scare Cannon Activator.

The Zon EL08 comes standard with legs that stand it about one foot off the ground. An optional rotating tripod is available to elevate the cannon and required 12V battery.

One cannon will protect from one to five acres, depending on the shape and topography of the area.

Operation of the Zon EL08 cannon requires a propane tank and 12-volt battery (sold separately).
