  • carpet covers

    Hi Guys,
    I have been using carpet covers from Tress-Up in Metairie Louisiana. I am getting ready to order a new set as these are shot. Does anyone have a strong opinion as to which covers are the best? I do not want to use the hard covers. I like being able to throw them into the washer...

    Re: carpet covers

    How much are you paying for your carpet covers?. I recently tried out a thing from Pin Movers, its no clothe and its urethan and man it was a good deal 49.00 for one and man does it require NO Maint. not only that but the pins are clusterd at the pin wheel so fast its great you could run your machine with 18 pins and bearly no the difference.

      Those are just belting material like the carpet belts off an AMF 82-70. They will get dirty unless you get under there and scrub them. Get used to cleaning pins by hand.

              We have the cotton ones, some black ones from Quality or Brunswick. And, the last ones we got were the pin pushers from EBN services. I personally like the ones from EBN services. They have the wide velcro and really do push the pins toward the pin elevator wheel. For whatever it is worth.

                    I would bet that you are trying to figure a way to put the carpet covers on your plows. Since you have 16 machines , you would certainly qualify for the more than 10 order [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]
                    Or, are you trying to say that if you place an order of more than 10 covers, you get "screwed" [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] by EBN ?

                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I must be thinking of something else. One center I briefly worked at had this belting material from Pin Movers out of Arkansas, I think. We had to use screws and fender washers to hold it down to the board. They worked fine, but cleaning them was virtually impossible once the dirt caked up on the rear. And this place was dirty.

                        I also tried a Pin Mover. Really hard to keep clean, and scratched the pins. Had to hand clean the pins in that lane once a week. It was a black belt like material, that was screwed to the pit board. I pulled it off!! Went back to just plain pit carpet cover on that lane.

                          I installed Quality urethane HD carpet covers about 6 years ago and I like them. They do require cleaning several times a week , but any cover will need cleaning, its just faster with the urethane covers because you don't have to change them out and wash that set. Just spray and wipe away dirt and grime. Also, for easier install and removal I installed 2 inch velcro along the sides and center of the covers. We do have to clean pins ocassionally.

                              well, I e-mailed a guy about sending me a sample of his "wonder cover. He didn't even bother to respond, so I can assume he is not interested... It's a pity since our chain has almost 900 lane beds. I guess I will try the Quality cover.
