Spiral Gumball Machines

I was interested in possibly purchasing a few spiral gumball machines to start my bulk vending adventure.

I am curious if people have had success with them, pros & cons,if you have found that they do better or worse $$ wise, neons vs. no lights, etc. Also, I have looked at several available on ebay and some have names such as wizard or roadrunner and others do not. Any difference there?

Thank you for the help. Any advice is much appreciated!

I've had terrible luck with spirals. I have 5 of them, 4 on location. 3 do terrible and need to be replaced. It is a real challenge to locate them. I will probably sell the one I have that is off location, near new condition, never on location, has beautiful neon lighting, and with how much they cost I could afford a few smaller charity machines and produce much more money. I liked spirals because the return on time spent servicing was very high, but I don't dare leave it alone for more than 3-4 months because the business may fail and my spiral would disappear.

If you dont mind my asking, what do you consider a super super location? Any idea why sales have gone down hill? Do you feel its all location or lack of variety or that business owners dont like such a big machine taking up space? Thanks for any opinions!
