  1. I have a crane national 4 wide in a school workout gym. For the whole fall semester not one incident of the kids shaking my machine for free stuff but now this semester already happened twice and not even a full 2 weeks have been done. So my question is what's the best or a good way to secure a snack machine to a wall or something so the moron kids stop shaking this machine so violently. I could care less about product and more the damage of my machine. This also isn't my chips got stuck let me do a little shake. These kids are pulling this machine down to the ground and shaking the hell out of it. Hope someone can help.
  2. I have a crane 171 and need a light for it. Can't find much on what will work, Looked in the manual for some idea but didn't see anything.
  3. What would you go with in terms of reliability and the functions of an all well rounded machine. The 148 I wanted is on waiting list and the place I'm buying from won't have one until some time. So would should i go with a crane National or an AP is there any major difference between the two? Thanks to who ever answers.
  4. Yep that looks like the route I'll be going. Thanks guys!
  5. Are snack machines okay to lay down in the bed of a Toyota tundra or will it get damaged? Thanks again guys!
  6. I am looking to buy a refurbished crane nat from a seller near me in Atlanta. My only issue is moving the machine to my location. The machine I want is a crane national 148 which has legs on it. I used this dolly to move a vendo drink machine and it was really easy to move with the help of the back legs. The drink machine was easy since it didn't hang in the air so I am trying to figure out how to get the snack machine on the dolly to move it to location with ease. Can I stack wood on the dolly to have it hang on it or can the legs be taken off at all? Thanks to whoever answers!!! You guys have been great!
  7. Found a used Vendo snack machine but not sure how they are in terms of reliability. I have been eyeing a crane national 148 but this machine will save me about $800. Thanks to who ever replies. Model VSR411
  8. Came to my location today and saw that my machine was not powering on. By chance do these machines ever have any power issues? Another cause for it to not getting power is due to that the machine is in a school weight room and I have seen kids drop or place weights near the power cord. There are a few slices on the cord but nothing major that I can see. If it does need a new power cable what's the best way to replace it? Hope someone can help!
  9. I have been looking for a new snack machine for my location for a while now and keep scouring my local CL (Atlanta) for a decent looking snack machine for sale but I just don't get where some of these people get their prices from. I see machines from the late 90's asking $900+, Machines that look dirty as hell and look like they could be a maintenance nightmare for $1,500+. I just don't get it. Are snack machines always this expensive or are most people delusional on used snack machines prices? If anyway can point me on what used snack machines brands I should buy used and what NOT buy used to buy would be great too! Or maybe I am just a cheap bastard and gotta pony up the money?
  10. Looking at a used snack machine tomorrow. Anything I should check out that might not be on the top of my mind?
  11. I am in the market for a new snack machine and this guy texted me with this machine for sale. He said it's a USI 4 wide and has double coils. He wants $450. Also how are USI machines? Should pass on this and splurge on a national? OR are the USI somewhat decent machines. Here's a picture of it.
