    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.

          Re: RPM

          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.
