Rowe wins an Innovative Award and not MEI?

I understand that Rowe came out with a new Rowe changer… The Rowe model 400. I also know they didn’t post the manual on there website which is weird?  I watched the video with Tim Kozlik…. I also like him… He seems like a nice guy.  But using the same hopper as an American Changer and MEI recyclers seems not very “innovative”. That bill acceptor would work in my old crusty Rowe that was MDB comparable. 

I might expect to much from Rowe?  I’m just not impressed. The display and sticker don’t help. The sticker actual looks worse then the old ones… I think.

The New England Car Wash Association gave Rowe the award. But the changer has been out a while. The MEI acceptor has been out about 3-4 years I think?  The coin hopper is generic.

  1. With regard to MEI coin acceptor CF7000, How should the coin entry chute be positioned over the MEI? The coin chute on our parking gates (WPS) is angled over the MEI, coins jam up frequently in the coin acceptor and in the chute, its been a royal pain since 2006, not only from lost time but also from lost revenue. I’ve got a picture of how the coin chute is located over the MEI. Thanks Marc

    1. I’m not sure what kind of changer you are talking about?  But I don’t think people use coin acceptors in changers anymore?  Coin acceptors were just in older Rowe changers.  Like the bc1200 (I just sold mine) and some other changers like one I have down stairs…. C10? Or something like that…. Which was actually mdb compatible which is good.   🙂
