Wait 10 years you will have 2 of those a year. 15 years you will have 2 of those a month. Personally can't comment past 15 years.

Dad has an 09 f250 power stroke, it will top fancy gap ( about 7 miles of 6-7% grade) at 62 miles an hour pulling 14,000 pounds. I wouldn't have believed it if I wasn't driving.

Why? Powerstrokes are awesome trucks! I had a 6.0 for a few years and man did it have the power. I wouldn't have any other diesel truck other than a Powerstroke. I love Ford, and I like Powerstroke; I like Cummins, but I hate dodge; and I like Chevy, but I hate Duramax. So Ford is the only way I could go to get a win/win. Now a Ford truck with a Cummins in it (more popularly known as a Fummins)...yeah buddy!

Well, I actually didn't buy it, my neighbor did. But his 650B and all of his reloading gear and components live at my house. He hasn't used any of it once yet. He tells me to just buy anything I need and he will pay for it as long as he can come use the equipment any time he wants- which has so far been never in the past year. I'm cool with that.

I think you can do 1000+ an hour.

I wonder if he would mind if I moved up there and brought his stuff with me?

When I had a lot of brass to trim with the RCBS Trim Pro I would just remove the crank handle and chuck up my battery operated hand drill on low speed. Works like a charm. For 100 cases though I probably would just do them by hand.

Grizzly is DOWN ! Dunno what happened but somthin gave up the ghost big time.
Riding dow the st last night with both kids and it starts screaming and squalling and smoking before shutting down . Tried to restart , seized , tried again , got it , slapped in gear and made it about 75ft before it stopped pulling and started pouring smoke out of the belt housing , hope its just a trashed belt but it dont sound good , luckily a neighbor was out peeing and towed us back home .

Might just strip the drive train out of it and slap it in the golf cart .
ANY engine swap is possible with a complete and healthy disregard to structural integrity .
