    FOLKS ,
    I have a PW 800 PLUS with the Auto-Mate II -I'm wondering what other owners are using to drop the reloaded shells into a bucket/bin/container . Whiz White has a fantastic setup using pvc , works great if the loader is right on the bench . Problem is the Auto Mate is on a raised platform . The angle is kind of tight . I'd like to see what you folks are using .

    Thank you in advance for your time & help.

    BILL

    The P/W electric drive is twice the unit as the Automate... and I worked on the development of the design of the Automate for both the P/W and the Spolar.

    The Automate has magnetic limit switches that were messing up on me constantly. Furthermore, there are no Automates being manufactured today for either the P/W or the Spolar since Jim Benn sold the Automate rights to MEC.

    I use hydraulics, but (1) they are damn noisy, and (3) $1300, compared to the new Electric Drive at $800. The E/D also has a clutch, which makes mistakes forgiving... the hydro just kept punching through.

    I have received more "thanks" and "general compliments" on the new Electric Drive than on any other P/W item I have sold, save the reloaders.
