  • Searching for a good oil

    I just ordered a Kustodian Plus lane machine. We are an 8 lane center with Anvilane (not pro anvilane). We had around 60,000 games bowled over the last 12 months and the majority of this is open play. Does anybody have any suggestions for a good lane oil and cleaner to use with this machine and lane surface?

    Oil - Kegel Prodigy - it cleans easily and does not cause ball calls
    Cleaner - Kegel Defense CX-4 - cleans great - it is a concentrate so you save on shipping

      in that order. All 3 clean easy and won't cause pinsetter issues if used right.

      I am not a fan of the concentrate cleaners. A little variance in the amount of cleaner makes a big difference. Meaning your "cap full" may not be the same as my "cap full"

      I am a fan of Defence/C

      You didn't ask but I'll add, I prefer the blue DBA/Brunswick cloth over the Kegel cloth. I think it cleans a little better.
      Conditioner: Pantene Pro-V Brunette Expressions with Color Enhancer
      Cleaner: Fabuloso Spring Fresh with Bleach Alternative
      Cloth: ShamWow!
      Machine: Johnny 5
      Surface: Melamine-impregnated, phenolic-treated, high pressure pressed craft paper

        Thanks for the tips. I was looking at the DBA/Brunswick cloth. Distributor told me that it works in the machine and it is a few dollars cheaper. I just didn't know if "cheaper" would relate to the quality.

            Kegel cloth is a bit more expensive, but has more feet per roll than DBA/Brunswick cloth.
