  • via powerlifts

    Has anyone had the new via powerlifts before? I'm getting ready to take over a new center and they have these ball lifts. I have worked on every other ball lift on the planet but have yet to come across these. just wanted to find out if there is any drawbacks from these lifts
    They say that the **** rolls down hill but the smell always starts at the top.

    I think that there is a GFL manual now available.
    Pinspotters do not break down when they are not running!

        I think that the VIA and AMF C90 powerlifts are the same style, but still very different. AMF actually buys the S rails ( I call them C tracks ) from VIA, so they are identical. The VIA/AMF C tracks, IMO, are probably the best available, they have lasted at least 10 years on average for me. All the electronics are Chinese, I think, so that area of the powerlift is very different and may pose a problem when needing spare parts. VIA also uses a different motor than AMF. I have never seen the VIA powerlift in action for any period of time though, so I do not know it's durability or longevity.
