    Does anyone have a video of their Spolar equipped with a PW autodrive? Seems like a reasonable deal to add an autodrive to my existing Spolar. But I have no sense of the speed or the operation of this unit. I got the hands on tour at Spolar when I picked up my loader, so I know exactly what to expect from their hydraulic unit, but no clue on the Autodrive. Thanks!

    The more current Electric-Drive has a push button on the control box and you have to push that each time you use the foot-switch. To me, that sound a bit counter productive. I'd think the reason you want the foot-switch is to free-up BOTH hands similar to the hydraulic foot-switch.

    I'm sure one can figure out a way to circumvent the push button, but I ain't telling'. Factory says its a safety issue. Their attorney in gun shy in my mind.

    Here's a video on the toggle switch model running flawlessly. You can click the link up under my e-mail and watch it run. They guy, whoever he is, did a nice job. My thanks to him.

    With that setup, all you need is an auto wad feeder, and then go watch TV! I have a great idea for that feeder setup.
