  • 82-70 and ball detector

    We have 82-70's with accuscore plus.
    Is the amf ball detector 244 001 058 compatible with the above equipment. The ball detector is for a pair of lanes or am i wrong ?

    Yes, it's compatible and sold in pairs.
    Think of the detector as a part of the machine. That's the way AMF thinks of it on new machines.
    You should be very pleased with them all the way around.

      Thanks astro, I thought as much. We are pleased with the results, currently we have it on half our lanes.

      I was asking because because we were given a price 30% higher than the list price. I can't understand why. So I ordered the above part, now one of the bosses (who incidentally wouldn't know the difference between a pin and a bowling ball) has told me I've made a costly mistake.

      Making a mistake didn't worry me, it's them being right for once that did !

        hmmmm. where are your ball detects located just wondering because of some problems I've come across with the amf ball detect.

          <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">We have a high failure rate with them. It seems that the odd lane side of the detect head quits reading. Had about 6 fail over 3 years.

            Get Bowltronics detectors.

            They are bullet proof.

              They belong just at the bottom leading edge of the kickback, don't they?

                we put ours in front of the sweep, we had probs with machine cycling if we ever did manual reverse sweep when it was by the kick backs. We have AMF triggers, but I do prefer the bowltronics

                  We put ours directly under the masking unit. We made our own deflector bracket to sit infront of it. Any stray balls bounce straight off it. Incidentally we've never had a problem once with any of our units. They've been in a good few years now.....

                    hmmmm. and Kat I had a center in pheonix that we had amf ball detects and they were mounted to the kickbacks the only problem was that when someone threw a good strike the pins would hit the kickbacks sohard the would vibrate the kickback enough to cause the other machine to cycle. JBEEs helped me to install them to the concrete below the kickbacks with a wood bracket so they could't make contact wi the kickbacks. after that they seemed to work ok. Do like the steltronics bal;l detects they work well as long as the bumpers don't interfere with the beam or block the reflectors like was goingon here from a bad bumper install.
