  1. I had some a while back and switched them out for AA doubles. Locations didn't justify 4 candy selections. Sold for $50 each to get rid of. If I remember correctly all the weight of the candy pushes against the candy dispenser parts and limits good portion control due to the poor design. I would not get again. You can get a GB cannister setup but it would not vend caps.
  2. Any update? No one answers or returns calls. Is oak leaf or zed softer for any of you who have ran both? I've no experience with Zed. Got some locations spoiled with Ford who say oak is to hard. Told them Ford not option right now.
  3. I have noticed in Eagles that I run 850ct with GB wheel, 2 spring brush housing, and riser; Eagle is prone to dispense 2 GB at intervals which adds up in cost. I never see misvends. The wheel is correctly aligned. My understanding is that this is the correct setup for single vends. Solution to consistent single GB vends? Baffle? It'd probably vend 3 1080s with my luck.
  4. How is their shipping cost? I can get Oakleaf gumballs currently from a retailer cheaper than I can Ford gumballs shipped from Ford in regards to shipping cost. Which I have yet to figure out. That's same count and same number boxes and at least the or greater shipping distance.
  5. Thoughts on length of time bulk vending as a side gig with established route could be worth it (5 yrs, 10 etc.)? I have doubled my service cycle length last two route runs since places opened up again and at that interval am able to pull preCovid amounts in most locations. So still making something for now.
  6. I recently placed an order for cry baby tears and couple other hard candies with candy machines.com. The price on the cry babies was huge difference from AA. Same count. Other candies were bit cheaper also. My first time ordering as was using TJKing (dt best shipping costs). You may want to check their price on bonz, never used those so not sure on price comparison. Order came quickly and in good condition.
  7. VendUSA: what gum brand and count did the guy use?
  8. Thanks for all the info. Believe Im going to give it a try.
  9. What gumball size goes with 2 gumballs for a quarter? Was informed some Oak Vistas I am considering getting have this setup. Sure this needs to be changed to one GB per vend to be profitable, but interested in knowing what size these would be and also what the wheel setup is compared to the standard 1/vend. Have not seen thus far. Tks
  10. Thanks guys. I was thinking $75
  11. What would considered a fair price for Oak Vista doubles these days? Considering some.
  12. Have checked almost all locations at this point in last couple weeks. Have been able to access most of the equipment. A couple restaurants have closed access off to my equipment and a kids gym placed my equipment and theirs in the closet. Everyone has been receptive to servicing--most are mom and pop commission restaurants which I believe has helped. Laundromats and auto places are not overly worried about the virus (in my vending perception). Normally would have serviced three times by now, overall a rough guess would be sales are down 50% from pre-C. Just glad to see places still open and machines still there at this point. And glad I have other revenue sources. Have no idea when to service again with sales as they currently are. Been stuck in Phase 2 for at least three extensions since April or May and still there. No one is posting local routes for sale I have noticed.
  13. I have serviced a couple laundromats this week and last. Did machine wipe downs prior to even opening. Some were empty and some were only half which was less than expected. The gum/hard candy products sold better than the toys which was a bit surprising. Restaurants can open for 50% capacity tomorrow. Not sure if vendors count in that number or not. May attempt to check some next week that were due to be checked when things locked down. Possibly be better to wait another week to allow people to settle into the newest rules routine. Hard to know what others perceptions are of bulk vending.
