    I have two 9000Gs and am planning to get either a MEC 9000E or 9000H. If it's a 9000E (with the Automate) I will have MEC convert one of my 9000Gs. Which way would you go?

    Thanks,

    Jon Reitz

    Hands down get the AutoMate.

    Quiet, no oil ever leaks and I hear it is just about as fast.

    But, I am prejudiced, since that is what I use.

    Good luck with your choice.

    The electric has fuses set up to blow when something gets in a bind. The hydraulic on the other hand does not have anything to compensate when there is a problem such as something bound up. It can easily bend and destroy parts with nothing to sense trouble. There are people who swear by both.

    Get the 9000E, but also buy the large (after-market) buttons.

    Buy the Auto-mate!!! You can buy the linkage sets and use your existing G's with no problem at all. I'm not sure what Mec would have to do to get your existing G's to even work with the H. Plus even if they can rework them there is the cost of converting and shipping one or both of your G's, "for what" more noise and a possible oil mess at some point. Break-em all. Jeff

    I have a 9000E and I highly recommend it. The idiot proof button placement and quite, smooth operation make it a winner. I easily load 300 to 450 shells at a sitting without a problem. This is my first loader so discount my information based on my experience...
    I would buy it again.

    Get the Automate and set it up yourself.

    I like the "H", no oil spills yet,(knock on wood) two hands and one foot,my speed and I wouldn't have it any other way. Bad back and bad shoulders keep me from trying the Auto-Mate, it sits too high above the bench for me but to each his own...........GOOD LUCK

    Well, all you guys got me figured out... Ain't much shootin and loadin goin on at my joint. Hand was too brittle to insert wads. Garage is heated but never warm like summer. We go out and shoot a few boxes here and there, but the current stash of bullets will last till January. But I like my E a lot. Got some nice pretty red AAs from Bob and will use those for one ounce and keep the greens and golds for handicap. anyone using "VERSALITES" that want to comment on how they verk in AAs or STS? I vary my components to fill the hull and make a good crimp rather than adjusting all the time.

    Depending on what you could sell one of your 9000 for, it might pay to sell one and buy the complete 9000E as the Automate alone costs about $500 and some additional parts.

    I have an Automate and have been very pleased. Had a good friend help me with the linkage to be able to switch from 12 to 20 to 28 on my other loaders. I have several friends that have the hydraulic & I do like their ability to simply move the hose to their other machines which I perceive to be much easier than when I have to switch the Automate.

    Automate is the best thing since the 9000 came out. I love mine.
