    Shilo,

    I sell them and use them. I personally like the Hydraulic, but the Electric outsells it 4 to 1. The reason I like the Hydraulic.....is that it leaves my hands free. By pressing the pedal with my foot it allows me to use both hands to get the next empty and wad. My customers who buy the Electric over the Hydraulic........they tell me it is quieter (it is), weighs less (it does), and more compact (it is). Some say that the Electronic is less maintanance, but I have never had many issues with my Hydrulic other than adding oil. It is a tad on the noisy side though! If you have any questions, please contact me.

    After about 4 years of using my 9000G, I added the electric automate...what a great improvement. I love it.

    Shilo,

    I forgot to mention in previous post.......If you already have a 9000G, you can buy the Auto-Mate and make it Electronic. That would save you some cash!

    I'm considering the E myself. I saw a video of someone using one. After he released the buttons there was plenty of time to pick up a wad and a hull as the press cycled to the up position. I think the "hands free" argument is a canard. I'd be afraid that if I were moving any faster I'd miss checking the primer drop or something else that would screw up the next cycle.

    Al Chickerneo,

    Yes, there is time with the 9000E to get hulls and wads. It is no problem. Like I mentioned above, people love their Electronic models. It is my #3 top selling loader despite the higher price tag.

    I have used a HydroMec for 25 yrs. I agree with Mr Woodson. I like the hands free,also. Plus,I can pay more attention to what the press is doing to the shells. Noise is a problem,oil is a pain in the butt but the ol' Hustler 76 just keeps on loadin''em. And right next to it is my Dillon 650. To think,I started with a Lee 12 ga hand tool & a Lyman 310 in 38 special 47 yrs ago.
