I've got new ones in stock if you don't find any used.

Sorry I missed your ? last night. I was in bed before you posted.

2007 catalog suggested retail is $ 299.95.

They are still on special at $ 290.00. I'll pay the shipping to the lower 48.

I am aware that the website says $ 399.00. I was basing my figure on the published retail in the newly received supply of 2007 P/W catalogs. Go figure.....

The same catalog has the 800+ and Platinum 2000 retailing for $ 669.00. That is down from last years retail of $ 799.00 which was effective from March 1, 2006 until the sale started in, I think, September.

My guess is that those new retail figures have been found to be more realistic in todays market. I'm sure that the 'special' pricing on the website will end sometime soon. There has been a month to month extension of the sale prices since the end of November last.

Great shooting to all.

If $290 including shipping is the correct price, a new one would possibly be cheaper than a used one. I have done business with Doug, and Like Jim C. and Whiz W., he is first class.

I never thought a hull feeder would help much with my hydraulic PE 2000, but at that price I might get one just because it sounds like a bargain.

Pat Ireland,

I have the 800+, and the P/W shell feeder. I have used the AutoMate II, the stock handle, Whiz's bent handle, and another gentleman on here who markets a "leverage" handle, and have hydraulic on my loader now. Would not go back to anything but the hydraulic at this point (but it is Spolar to be honest, for the electronic foot control).

I used the 800+ without the shell feeder just getting the feel of things. While you can probably go just as fast without a shell feeder, that accessory works extremely well, and if you won't miss the money, I would highly recommend one. The feeder just makes loading much easier, with my only concern grabbing a wad and checking the primer drop (never misses, but I still check). I don't recall what I paid for mine, but it was lot more than 290 or 300 bucks. Still, whatever it was, I really like it and would miss it if gone. I think it does allow you to go a bit faster, but I load to enjoy the experience and satisfaction of a quality shell, so speed is not my primary motivation.

The new 2007 Retail price is $299.95.

Of you plan one the hydraulic and the shell-feeder, stop by the local hardware stop and also pick up a wall mount for your TV. You'll hve lots of time to think... ;-)

I spoke to BRIAN AT p/W and he says that the "Sale" will continue for a few more months? It seems strange with the new retail price just $20.00 more than the sale, but who are we to argue. I have a full, instock inventory of P/W machines, parts and accessories, I'm told that there is a considerable delay in shipping from P/W since they got way behind when there main fabricating machine went down.
