  • Bruns machine - NO GEARBOX

    Have any of you guys seen this pinsetter? They removed the gearbox and turrett drive and run the deck up and down with a cylinder and turn the turrett with a small hydraulic motor? They say 70% less parts!
    It was at the BPAA in Vegas this past week.
    It looks like someone scavenged expensive parts from an A2 and another guy said he could make it run with hydraulics.
    The company is in Michigan - Grand Rapids area.

    Are there any installed anywhere?
    This post is not an unpaid promotion of my business.

    I would hook up a gerbil wheel and put a large pulley on the would be cheaper.

      I saw that POS at the Bowl-expo! Chromed deck was nice to look at... and it had a rolling pit! But as I told the guy at the booth, " Impress me. Let me see it run" They had left the electrical box back at the motel!! How can you come all the way to the biggest show in the bowling world and not have your product up and running?
