Challenger Candy Crane

Recommended Posts

Any one know if the vend price or the play til you win mode can be changed? I may pick one up but I dont want to be locked in a quarter and would like to make it skill. I cant seem to find a manual on the net.

I can get you a manual for it but I am out of town until Sunday. As far as the credits go, i am not sure what settings are available but dogcow has been playing with a credit accumulater board.

yes they are full- adjustable via a digital menu

coin $.25- $1.00

time of play 15 sec to 60

claw strength 1-10

delay of teaser play

how many tries per play 1-15 tries anything above 5 is usually play till you win

volume control 1-10

i think thats all the ajdustments

they are a great long lasting crane

i have 4 of these still on routes some with 240k on the coin counters..

a bit diffrent design than other cranes order some spare belts from s&B candy and toy unde AGE parts

bill

i have the manual as well, but there is usually a programming how to sticker located near the coin mechs

if this model talks, it wil play a jaws theme and self play.

Reason #1 i bought a covered trailer dogcow..

lol

anyway the main board is located under a metal flap in the bottom of the playfield

there is a seperate power supply inside the door right behind the two switches its bolted in on a angle and is hard to see

i doubt anything got wet but make sure the power supply is not wet

second with these used is a treasure of what the hell is that?

get out a shop vac... clean the shop vac..make sure its empty

make sure you got enough hose

get a flashlight and flip open the trap door to the motherboard and look at the bottom

should be at least 10 years of candy and money i once emptied out 118.00 in quarters out the bottom of one..

I am picking up 2 this weekend. They are both very good looking. Complete with locks keys and even some spare parts. One works fine but the seller cant get the other to work. But he has the manual so I will play with it and see what I can do.

Bill thank you for the S&B tip im glad to see they have the parts.

AGE Challenger Candy Crane - Does anyone have the manual for this? Anywhere I can download it from? I have the AGE Snack Attacker, but these look to be the exact same except for the shell. Hoping to find the manual as I have several things I want to see on this crane, but since AGE is gone no one maintains the support for them anymore.

Thanks,

Tom W.

S&b candy and toys has the parts try them they probably have manuals too. The only thing I liked about these cranes they are built like a tank. I put one in an outside location. Other than that they have some weird design flaws

Havending,

Keep in mind I do not know what can and can not be adjusted,

On mine the rope light is so fast it hurts the eyes it would be cool to slow it down,

I would like volume adjustment, and to be able to kill the play til win feature if desired, and claw strength adjustment is a plus.

 

On the subject of boards I read one version plays the theme to jaws how hard would it be for me to find one of those?

 

many thanks for the help,

cheers,

P.

I plan on buying one in the next week or so. It comes with owner's manual, which I paged through while I looked at the machine. It had instructions for how to adjust the price.

This is a more depressing post for me, seems after I was here last I crawled deeper into what was wrong with my crane,

It powers up, rope light flash and make steady noise/sound,

will not register a coin, but the led credit and timer is on zero,

 

I have the one large circuit board in the trap door that looks okay BUT looking in from the coin box up under the left side is a smaller board, hanging upside down, it had the controls for sound and rope speed BUT one of the large capacitors (?) had what looked like a brown drop hanging off it at first I thought perhaps candy syrup but I removed the board and the capacitor had popped, the drop of brown I guess was some sort of oil or resin from in it, one lead was off the board and the other broke loose easy,

making things worse an IC chip near that had green patina growing on it's leads,

So I fear just replacing that blown part may or likely will not help my problems,

 

So I hate to call my crane inop junk, it's otherwise in good shape and prewtty darn cool, with the very limited info on these I highly doubt that board is something I can buy a replacement for or at a price that isn't many times what the crane is worth.

 

Curious could this challenger crane be upgraded by installing the brains from some other crane in it, seems the boom/claw part is similar to most cranes.

 

So while I still want the manual I now need to figure out what are my options if any to get her working again.

Many thanks!

 

Cheers,

P.
