  • SUR-PIC REMOVAL

    Starting tomorrow 1-23-06, we'll be saying goodbye to our good old sur-pics. These are the 12 ball Mod IV version. Most of them will be going into the dumpster, except for the parts that I promised to some. Other than that, if you have need of any parts including hoods and what have you, give me a call at 847-949-5700, 9-5, m-f and ask for Rick. The price is right for the right person.

        Re: SUR-PIC REMOVAL

        Why would you want to remove such good equipment?

        I'd love to take them all off your hands, but the shipping would be a killer... and it's a bit far to drive to pick them up.

        My friend is a truck driver that occasionally makes runs to Chicago... Sadly, he hasn't had that run in a while... or there would be a 53' lowboy pulling up to your center to load 'em on.

          "Sure-Pics forever?" Didn't somebody on here call them "Sure-Stucks?"

              I dunno what all the b!tch is about... we have 15 of them, and they are one of the least problematic pieces of equipment in the house. They get cleaned, oiled, and PM'ed a couple times per year... takes just a couple minutes per unit. We'll have a motor quit (repair time 5 mins), a belt break (repair time, 2 mins), or a spring snap (repair time, 1-2 mins) every few years... maybe an undergound due to excessive oil or an extremely old ball a couple times per season.

              All in all, they're very reliable and fairly simple. If our shur-pik FPS spread to the rest of the house equipment, the maintenance staff would be cleaning tables, serving drinks, or sweeping floors more than they would be in the back on the machines, and we'd have one of the best-running centers in the country.

              I will say, though, that our returns were properly installed and adjusted, and kept well adjusted. Shur-piks are a finicky animal... they either run great, or they're a nightmare. There's not much middle ground.
