  1. Oh boy, here we go. The 5 dirty words "..best type of combo machine".

  2. They may not have been able to keep up with demand and fuel/time costs ate all the profit. Combos require constant attention. If you decide to move forward, I would suggest at least trying to talk the location into drink only. Also, if the laundry is coin-op, set your vendor to "Force Vend" or all your quarters will end up in the laundry machines. You'll have a lot of $1 bills but no product sold.

  3. I originally asked because there used to not be a combined manual, but just found one. https://rc.cranems.com/Uploads/E-Model%20Series%2090%20Single%20Price_SIID%20Service%20Manual%20760.11.pdf For more detail on the single price electronics (not this particular machine but single price is pretty much the same no matter the machine or brand) https://vendiscuss.net/files/file/114-dixie-narco-series-90-service-training/

  6. Avoid any of the imported combos, such as Seaga. Poor quality with no parts or tech support, often using non standard components as well. AMS or Crane combos are OK, but be aware as was already posted capacity is poor, especially drink capacity. That is unavoidable when you shove two machines into one cabinet. Spending too much time restocking machines hurts your profit margins deeply. As for apartments in general, some can be good locations and some are terrible. Mostly depends on the types of tenants they cater to. College age or family oriented can be good; but locations that cat

  7. Is that 2 machines in each laundry room or 1 combo per? If it's 1 combo per room, you will likely spend more time and resources keeping those machines filled than the value of your time. Combos don't hold a lot so the have to be filled often. Apts tend to be tough on equipment as they're not well secured and tend to get trash and debris forced into coin slots and bill accepters shutting your machine down. Service calls will be pretty constant for stuck coins and vandalism. Not saying it's an absolute but definitely worth considering. If possible, find out who had the location before
