I guess it had to happen? My Mars bill acceptor wanted to go on a road trip, so it ate its belts. It might be jealous of my Rowe International BA-50 bill acceptors which get to go on a trip to the repair man every year.
So I have owned car washes for around 4 years and had one real Mars bill acceptor problem (I own 2). But my Rowe BA-50 (own 5) breaks an average of once a year and probably have cost me $800 over the last 4 years? You know I hate my Rowe changers even more now. I also need to fix 2 more of my BA-50 bill acceptors now.
Summary: I love MEI Mars bill acceptors and I HATE Rowe BA-50 bill acceptors.
