  • Bucket ? for the old timers

    This is a silly question BUT. In the mid 80's I worked with some Otis #3XXX machines and of all the buckets that were there there was one bucket on one machine that was army green. Were the first buckets green and could this have been a VERY long lasting original? It was on the less beaten position like 3 6 9 or 2 4 8. Just wondering

    Think that was just another aftermarket. I still have quite a few on at a couple centers that are a rough urethane, dark orangish color that were made be Ace Bowling i believe, and still in good condition, been there since early 80's.

          I believe we have several of the orange deck chutes that brentman1 was referring to still in use. They look like they could have a prehistoric bug trapped in them, like from The Jurasic Park movies! Wonder why they do not make them anymore?
