    I have a pw 800+ loader which is dropping short amounts on all shot drops and requires a excessive stong pull of handle to drop loaded shell. Any help appreciated. Ready to pull hair out thanks

    Something appears to be preventing the machine from fully cycling. The excessive pressure to eject a loaded shell could be a symptom of a problem at one of the other six stations. I would look for something that is preventing the shot/powder bushings from fully cycling, assuming the gears are properly aligned. Now, there is not enough information for even our expert, Whiz, to diagnose the problem or problems.

    Did you buy it new? Has anybody had it apart? Did the problem always exist or had the loader worked properly before?

    Does the loader operate the same way without any hulls in it?

    Clean out the shot and powder reservoir area. I'd even recommend removing the two shut-off plates and thoroughly cleaning in this area as well.

    Only three things make the handle hard to pull:<BR>
    <UL><Li>1.  Rack Gear area where residue is present in and around the black plastic shot and powder gears<Li>2.  the Shell Seating Post is set too high<LI>3.  Primer Seating Shaft is set too high</UL>

    If you haven't already, click my above link and download my "Maintenance & Lubrication" pamphlet.
