    Add the Automate, runs smoother and is a lot quieter.

    Went through hell converting an 9000G to Automate. Suggest you sell the 9000G and buy a complete new package.

    If you are asking about the cost of the Automate...I think it was about $500.00

    I own a pump and had an opportunity to purchase a used 9000G. I contacted MEC to inquire about the feasibility and cost of upgrading a 9000G to a 9000H and was told it was not worth it because you can buy a 9001HN (hydraulic without pump) for less that it would cost for MEC to do this.

    I have found two sources for the MEC 9001HN:

    http://www.cacassociatesinc.com $463.00 + $21 shipping. (Check/Money Order only)

    http://www.gamaliel.com $540.95 + free shipping.

    Tommy,

    If you have a pump, I have the add on hydraulic unit for the 9000 with a rebuilt cylinder and brackets that I will install for 200.00 + return shipping. If you have any question I can be reached at 423-743-9233.

    thanks
