    Good Evening.
    I have the obvious (I think) great opportunity to buy a basically new (less than a flat reloaded on it) 9000 12g for $150. I've been reloading for about 3 years now with a 650.
    My question is really about converting it to hydraulic. Ease, problems, etc. Although if anyone really has had problems with them I'd like to know that too.
    Thanks in advance.

    It can be done, but it is difficult and I don't think it would cost effective. The mounting plate on the H model are different than that of the G model. In addition there are support braces that anchor the press to the base for stability. The arms in which operate the turret up and down are different and in reverse. By the time you purchase the pump, hydraulic ram, misc parts you would be better off purchasing a used 9000H.

    If your description is accurate, you ought to at least buy the $150 loader and use it to trade up to a hydraulic/electric 9000. Also, you could likely double your money on ebay, at least. Good luck.

    Agree with the other posts, the price for the 9000G alone is worth getting it. I would also look into getting the Automate for it instead of the hydraulics, much easier conversion and accomplishes the same thing.

    Buy the reloader-then buy the automate drive system. Your 9000g will fit right on top of the auto mate,you'll need to but the conversion kit(cheap),but you'll be wau under what a hydraulic system will be.PerryM

    It was as advertised. I scooped it up! Little bit of dusting and lube and I'll be on my way.
