Am I able to buy an Automate and install it directly onto my 9000G? does it come with all the linkage?

Mine did and the conversion is about a one-hour project that most mechanically-inclined types can handle without much frustration.

Awesome. would you have done it sooner? is it faster than the hydraulic?

Did mine last summer. Simple, just follow instructions like putting together kids toys or a new grill... Got the best price from Connies, so be sure to shop around. Price diff were like a $100 The new ones have an updated motor and take a higher amp fuse. Quiet and as fast as I want it to be. Bob

My mechanical skills are on the short side. That being said I did my conversion in about one hour. Give yourself some room and carefully follow the directions step by step. Take a picture with your digital camera as you go just to make sure you have it right when you go to put it all back together. Write yourself a note or two to make sure you get the washers back in the right place. It is worth it. Great addition to MEC loader.

I have 4 of them- not faster than hydraulics but fast enough. I added the moke-mate foot control to all of mine.

Automate makes for a consistent shell. Well worth it.

I am going to be the one nay sayer here. I converted a well used 9000G and if I had it to do over I would have bought a completely new reloader from Mec already adapted to the Automate. Went through hell getting it to work. Blew 10 +fuses and eventually sent the reloader back to MEC to be rebuilt.
