    Does any one know what the RPM of the kicker assembly is?

    Re: RPM

    Not really sure... if I had to guess, I'd say ours are in the range of 180-240 RPM at the kicker wheel. (guessing about 3-4 revs/sec)

      Put a one sided football kicker roller on a machine.......turn it on.......put a rag on it because you have to clean kickers if you have them....HA HA......count how many times the flat side goes around in 10 seconds.....multiply by 6.

          Thanks guys...the reason I'm asking is that I'm working with a chemist and an engineer to develop a new kicker using today's technology. It was one of the questions that the engineer asked. I can't really check mine with a rag as per Queens instructions due to I have my kickers running on a 5” congress drive pulley.

          JJ.....”yes” what? [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img]

            Ed, I'll go one step further and teach you how to figure it out yourself. :p

            The basic formula is (D)rpm=(AxC)/(BxD) x (A)rpm

            A is the BE motor drive pulley in inches
            B is the big carpet pulley in inches
            C is the small carpet pulley in inches
            D is the kicker wheel pulley
            (A)rpm is 290. Found that in the AMF manual

            so if A=3 B=6 C=2 D=2
            (3x2)/(6x2) x 290
            (D)RPM= 145

                JJ.....you are much too intelligent to be just a tech.

                Ed....IMO..........I would redesign the starter pad and front fill assy. to make the ball get into the lift easier.

                        umm... ok. But I guess your center runs pretty dam good there JJ to think up that formula. But i yet to see why u need the speed of a kicker roller to design a new one? What you need to do is invent a super soft but non degradeable kicker roller.

                        Well thats just like your opinion man...
