    I am considering the purchase of the auto drive system offered by P/W. Has anyone had any experience with this system. It appears to work very well in the videos, that I would expect. I am considering the toggle joy stick for operating. I am not concerned about how long it will take to "pay" for the system. Just looking for some input from fellow shooters. '

    Thank you..

    20 minutes to hookup and setup. 2 1/2 years(55k rounds+)of absolutely flawless performance.

    I have one with toggle and works like a charm for me. Mine is 3 years old I think.

    I have one and it works perfectly on my 800+. What ever you do, DO NOT wire around your red safety button. That would be dangerous and you might get hurt. Just make sure you keep it a convenient two handed operation rather than the pesky one handed operation.

    Send me your shipping address and I will quote you a price including the shipping.

    Orders placed now will not be shipped until mid-January.(These are really popular with the Dillon metallic reloaders).

    P/W makes Auto-Drives for P/W, Spolar, and Hornady 366 loaders plus the Dillon RL1050, 1000, Super 1050, and XL650 and the Case Pro 100.

    The following video shows how the Auto-Drive operates with the Joystick Control.

    Have had mine for 4.5-5 years, bought the first one Jim from Florida sole at New York State Shoot four or five years ago, it's on an 800 plus, used the toggle for one year but soon bought the foot control, love the whole setup.

    The PW electric drive may be the only thing that works perfectly on a PW800 plus setup. At least my does. But, when the whole system works it works great.

    The foot control comes with the safety button as well. If you defeat the safety switch on the box, it would save some time. I have the foot control and I have put a couple zip ties around the pedal so all I have to do is press the red safety button to operate it. Perfect waste of $50

    Like mooster I have the foot switch (rinky dink like the picture above) and it requires stepping on the pedal and pushing the red button at the same time to operate. Waste of $50.
