    How hard and how expensive is it to convert a MEC 9000GN to a MEC 9000HN? Thanks

    You might be better off just to sell the 9000G and buy a used 9000H. Parts would probably not make it cost effective.

    You would be money ahead to just find a used H model and buy it. I tried to convert my G to a H. By the time you buy parts to convert it you would be in the hole. The base plate in it's self is completely different.

    They are not designed to be switched over. The old grabbers were, but not the 9000's.

    I once thought of doing this to a Hyd. Mec Hustler, before the 9000H, and was told just the same as CalKidd. It would be less costly to find a used 9000H. They are on here all the time for sale you just have to watch and be ready to buy. Deals can be made.

    It is however possible and feasible to adapt a regular 9000GN to the electric Automate.

    I would just give your old machines to a close shooting friend....say maybe one that lives in Pinehurst... and just get a new one. That is what I would do if I were you.

    I did it the hard way and it works.

    There is a kit for converting them.

    Send me PM and I will send picutures of the kit.

    He's asking about a 9000, not a grabber.

    I also would like to know where to buy the "KIT". I have several 9000's that I could use the kit on.

    P.S. If nothing else, please PM me with info

    They are sold by reloading stores. I am not sure but they may be availiable from MEC. The one I got mine from went under.

    I Google a couple on here that does not look like they ever sold.

    Take care,

    Jim
