Randy 805 Posted December 13, 2013 Share Posted December 13, 2013 Hey guys, I'm trying to phase out some older Crane 145's from my locations, and replace them with something newer, the Cranes function well, but are increasingly requiring more and more repairs and service calls. I'd like to really start moving in a new direction, more upscale and position my small route for some good growth with a strong base snack machine to build from and use as a selling point, I plan to start going after larger accounts and really want to impress them with what I can offer... What I need is something that has looks nice and newer (not brand new per say though this is a possibility), has dual coils, a guaranteed vend system of some kind, MDB, and the option of integrating Credit Card readers and a remote monitoring system in the near future. The guy I've been using for parts is a good knowledgable guy and sells refurbished machines and has asked me to consider the USI 3152 as he recently aquired a few of them, price is reasonable at $1495 each, these machines seem to meet all my previous requirements with the exception of the guaranteed vend system, what I need to know is first, is the USI, particuilarily this model a good base machine for expansion? If not what would be a suitable substitute? Also, is there a way to integrate some kind of guaranteed vend system into these? I've heard that many 3rd party GV systems dont really work all that well and actually cause more trouble than they are worth, but it's a strong selling point I'd like to offer as I hunt for the bigger accounts. What say ye? Randy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
