  • 90's or 70xli

    Drill, AMF is offering a factory rebuild 8270 with PBL's and new xli kit installed. Is this what you have or does anyone in here have this setup and could I contact you via phone....This is a few of the options we have.

    US Bowling Inc. Offers:
    Reconditioned 8290xl's with 2nd generation chassi's
    2 year warranty parts and electronics
    AMF Offers:
    Factory Rebuilt 8270 with PBL's and new XLI kit
    1 year warranty parts and electronics
    Price is about the same on both and perks are about the same also.

    That is the setup that drill has. I was there when they were doing the install and AMF did a good job. I think DRill has been happy with his move from what he posted in another post. XLI seems to be the way to go.

      Yes but AMF matched the 2 years warranty, AMF will give you a phone number where you can talk to the person rebuilding them before the install. You will have one person to call and talk to if you have any problems and the install is a class act.
      I went with the 70 as this machine has proved itself over time and that was the biggest selling point to me.

        70 is a better machine. Another house here in town has reconditioned 82-90's, and they have been less than trouble free. I have a pair of xli's. Only minor problems, but overall a solid product. 70's with no chassis or electrical problems is a dream come true.

          I still think the 70 is the best option.

            We are looking at the same thing. I cannot help but think to get the new chassis and keep what we have. What do you guys think.

            I am the reneck still running the relay chassis. They work fine but the owner is talking about an upgrade. From the 70 to the 70xl it seems that the most benifit could come from electrical, so why not just put in new chassis?

            Any thoughts?

                  Oh yea, we also took into mind that with the xli chassi we will be able to upgrade our scoring from the as90's to the latest out there at any time. AMF is interfacing our as90s for us also in this deal.
