I believe a used hydraulic unit is only worth around $500. The reason is the P/W Auto-Drive electric unit is quickly becomming more popular. The Auto-Drive is only $800. It is very quiet and does not generate any heat. It also will not leak! P/W understands this and that is why they are closing out the hydraulic unit.
Don, I used to load 28's and .410's on my 900 too. The 800 Plus makes it easier to change gauges. With the Auto-Drive I want just one loader bolted up to the Auto-Drive. Each time you put a different loader on the Auto-Drive you have to re-adjust the linkeage.
Thanks for the info, no paperwork in origional box, yes dark blue leeson 1hp motor with black resevior. Same setup as picture in ponsness catalog 2010. oldtimer purchased for ancient 800c PW loader never installed. I purchased whole package thought about making sausaage stuffer out of it. Or just sell her, thanks again
I load around 3000 .410's per year on my 800 Plus with the Auto-Drive. I can stop and back up to straighten a folded wad petal without double charging. The Auto-Drive has a brake so it stops instantly. The control is very precise. You can move the loader in very small increments forward or backwards. I prefer the joystick control because it lets you change direction instantly.
