Handle Effort and Stroke


Recommended Posts

I have a 550 which I operate seated.  I'd like to pick up the pace.

I have a 1050 which is plenty fast for my needs, but I have to operate it standing which my worn joints make sessions short.

 

Question:  How is the handle effort and length of stroke on a 650/750 compared to the 550?

If I can't run it seated like the 550, I had just as well splurge on another 1050 and load ten minutes at a time.

 

No, I don't want a motorized loader.

What about a lower bench? it may be cheaper. I had my 650 on a strong mount the case feeder was 3/4" from the ceiling but I was able to lower my bench. Im not sure what your reloading area looks like But you dont need much for the bench itself. you could make something out of 2 2x4s and a little bit of plywood if you fasten it to the floor or wall.then you can run it at whatever height is comfortable

 

 

Stroke is pretty close to identical to 550.

I can run my 1050 sitting or standing.  I use a 28" stool and I'm quite comfortable.
