It's all relative to your position infront of the loader and the elevation of your shoulders.I've recently purchased a used MEC Grabber and a 650. I've been using them less than 6 months. I'm not sure of either press's age but I was wondering how much force is needed to pull the levers?
Thats my reason for the question. I'm 50 now but as I age what are my expectations concerning reloading shotshells and the effort it takes.When I had my 9000, I got into a rhythm and started with my right hand and added my left hand about midway down. After a few years of tired shoulder, I went with a PW 800+ with electric drive
From my experience, the amount of effort will decrease once all stations are dialed in and shells look good. Too much effort usually means something is out of adjustment or an issue with the mix of components. Also, due to the height of my bench, I find it easier on the shoulder to stand while loading.I appreciate that info!
