AngryChris Posted July 8, 2014 Share Posted July 8, 2014 I just had a moment where I was wondering how I was going to get some upgrades and repairs done. Many of my repairs are due to faulty MAKA validators. I am not just broke... I am in the RED lately. I just remembered that I had not one, but TWO 501e's WITHOUT MDB harnessing. That may seem weird to some, but the machine is capable of 110v or 24v MDB as far as I know. Because of this, both machines currently have Mars VN 2511's inside. I have a few extra MDB validators and coin mechs that I won on ebay auctions last year, so all I needed was the MDB harness. I went ahead and ordered one off of ebay real quick (I was supposed to ask Randy for one, oops) so that I can hopefully get that harness real fast. I am simply going to swap out what is probably a VN 2511 and TRC 6000 combo for something along the lines of a Coinco BP2BX and 9302 GX combo. I can use that 2511 on a machine that has a faulty Mars VFM. Instead of paying for an entire validator, I only need about $20 for the MDB harness . In knowing that I have at LEAST 1 more machine like this, I am stoked! It may not sound like a big deal to some, but I have NO cash to spare at the moment. In fact, I just did a cash flow forecast and I am broke broke broke until March!!!! The point to this post is that you should upgrade your equipment whenever the upgrade gives long-term value, especially when that means you get to free-up a VN 2511 to replace your broken VFM .
