Okay so I acquired some Parker Slugbuster II 2 long drop coin acceptors. Is there a reason why I shouldn’t use the Slugbuster products? Are Ginsan Industries Sensortron acceptors better or worse? Why do all these products look the same as the $20 ebay China coin acceptor?
The Parker is $30 less for the old Slugbuster I (Old Style) $108.33. (They look exactly the same.)
The Slugbuster II quarter only is $107.14. With tokens also $130.94.
All the Slugbuster II models are less then the Sensortron at $137.75? What have I done? :)
What also worries me is in the Kleen-Rite ad for the Sendortron, the info says “with over 100,000 units in service since 1981″. That I am guessing… means they have sold 100,000? That doesn’t seem like very many…. so I think I have been purchasing something everyone knows is over priced and other products are better?
Also if you goto parkers slugbuster website: slugbuster.com (Which BTW is SO BAD and looks like a phishing web site. The clip art also is….. WOW!) They say to fix ANY Slugbuster it cost $65… and a new acceptor has a 2 year warranty? WTF that site does seem like a scam! Or to good to be true! :) I think I have to switch to Slugbuster acceptors…. unless they are POS? I don’t know? :)
