  1. I'm looking at a bev 3 late model just before crane moved on to the bevmax 4. Do I still need to FULL upgrade kit offered by @Vendors Tech or would some of the parts in the kit be redundant?
  2. I have one subsidized account. As others have mentioned here, I simply charge a flat rate of .75 per vend and price each item at .75 below retail. I run CC readers with back end software so it's dead simple to make up a sales report at the end of each month and attach it to the subsidy invoice. This works great for everyone and I'm sure we're getting a decent sales bump due to the low prices..

    Teas

    I sell Arizona green tea, peach snapple and Lipton brisk. They all do reasonably well with the Arizona line being the best and most consistent performer. I'm in western Canada

    I'd do the exact same in your shoes, snap up as much as you can deals like that dont come along often.

    Should mention I haven't owned a 3575, but the 3535, 3538 and 3566 models i'm very happy with. As long as the 3575 is up to the same build quality you should be golden.

    These machines are awesome. I run GVC2 board wittern machines at all of my accounts, zero problems. Vendnet should have your manuals. http://www.vendnetusa.com/wfdata/files/4216320.pdf You can get more at that silly price? PM me

    Fair enough AZ, I know you have a ton of experience to draw on here. I'll remove the shims and see if I fare any better. It's always the same, bottle comes part of the way out the gate and gets stuck.

    I've heard both ways AZ. You can buy a 20oz bottle shim after all. Whether I shim or not they seem to hang up with about the same frequency - I suppose other parts in the assembly could be getting worn out

    Thanks Chris. That's exactly what I'm thinking about here. Is it worth me buying any more if they come along cheap and in nice shape.. they are getting older. I prefer the bevmax 4 obviously they're just so expensive.

    What are people's thoughts on these machines in 2018? Still a viable, cost effective glass front option? I have a few of them, they hold up well and still look nice but I can't seem to prevent the odd mis-vend, particularly with gatorade bottles. This is even with clean slides and proper shims. Anyone still using these as a go-to machine for those midrange accounts of 50-100?

    I'm in western Canada, guessing shipping would be prohibitive

    No, I just try to buy late model machines when I see them at a bargain. Parting out sounds like too much work Most I've had to do is sand and paint a couple of V21's but at $200 a pop I can handle that.

    I'm trying to build my route with the same make/ model everywhere. Not easy or cheap but from a training, maintenance standpoint it makes sense to me. So far all current/ late model USI snack and Bev 4 for drinks. Have a couple 5591's in service and V21's on deck. Anything else I will trade in/ trade up, or sell.
