The PW Hull feeder is a simple, reliable machine. Early versions got some bad reviews needing modifications, but in the month Ive had mine, its been great. Although I prefer manual operation, having the hull on the post automatically still cuts down on time and makes loading much more enjoyable. The only gripe I have is the instructions are not terribly clear and not illustrated at all. Fortunately, PWs customer service is excellent and they quickly and clearly explained what to do for a simple installation on my 800plus.
