  • kicker rollers

    Hey guyes,
    just wondering what type of kicker rollers have you had good/bad luck with? And what kicker belt are you useing. I use the red devil kicker & 8695 kicker belt. So good so far.

    Re: kicker rollers

    Since I've moved to a center with kicker lifts 6 months ago (boy I sure miss PBL's!) I've used AMF's Orange Round (Part #070011435), Yellow Concave (Part #070011635), and Red Double Concave (Part #070011429). The Orange and Yellow have worked ok, but I've had the best results with the Red Double Concave rollers. Those are the ones I'll be using from now on.

      Wow russ, I've never been able to get any of AMF's rollers to work. The best one I've seen is Vantage red full contact. Next best is Qualitys brown one. Lane oil eventually turns it to mush and it works greaaat! Problem is one reactive ball that gets stuck for one reason or another will chew it up to shreds.

        TECH:
        I have a couple of those Vantage rollers on a couple of my lifts. Only God knows how long they've been there, and they're still working great. I do have the "field upgrade" (homemade, if you will) chain tensioners on my kickers...that has helped with the ball returns.

            never use AMF they purposily make them don't work 100% so you will buy their PBLs. This came directly from one of their salesmen.

              Yea, but you can't believe ANYTHING an AMF salesman tells you. I had a friend who was going to upgrade 82/30's to 90's and the salesman told him his old ball returns wouldn't work with 8290's just so he could sell him C-90's in addition.

              GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

                  All I'm saying is AMF will do anything to make a sell.
