    Have a Mec 9000. Just found a PW 800+ for $300. I am having trouble resisting. Buy the PW and sell the Mec?

    That's pretty much a no-brainer!, even if the previous owner has it out of adjustment. Easy to solve.

    youll have to re train yourselfa bit if you are a long time mec user ,i have a 800b that i have been running for years and love it,have friends that only ran mecs,and ran mine, and were not comfortable with mine,and didnt like it. they are tanks that produce great shells when they are set up rite.mark

    If you are sure it's a +, and not an earlier model, you should already own it. Mark

    Sorry Dave, I find it hard to believe you can buy an PW 800+ for $300 unless it has been in a fire or is still hot -----

    A P-W 800+ for $300?????? And you're WONDERING???? I could recommend a good therapist.

    I'd have broken my wrist getting to my wallet. I've got the 800+ and I love it. I admit that there are loaders out there that I'd rather have - a Patriot, or, if money were no object, a Spolar Gold, but damn! The 800+ is a great loader, and the only way to go wrong with it is to pass it up when it's such a bargain.

    Buy the P.W. reloader. You do not get those kind of deals every day.

    No brainer. Buy the 800 and ditch the mec.

    Are you sure it's an PW 800 plus? Look at the label on the front of the machine and make sure. If so, buy it, or let me know and I will.

    Buy the PW and don't get rid of the MEC. Until you are sure the PW will work out for you.

    Listen to Whiz ... buy that loader!

    If you decide that you don't like it ... you can always sell it at a profit!
