I have fitted a remote battery pack so that battery leakage corrosion to the circuit boards will never be an issue in the future. There are locks fitted, the machine is set to free play. There are the mountings for an electronic sentinel coin mechanism though there isn't one fitted. I have a photocopied manual to go with the machine.
The machine has also been PAT tested to ensure it's safely earthed and current leakage test passed. It really is a great 90's game with lots of different features and shots to make, it features a 5 ball multiball, there is loads to do and the sound and light effects are particularly good, the spinning disc is great, on canister multiball the balls are all magnetised to the disc, which is spun round then the balls are released and shoot everywhere.
The fan topper is fully working and goes full speed on multiball, I have fitted a switch inside the coin door so that you can turn it on or off as you prefer. The metalwork on the cabinet has just been powder coated and thus is in excellent condition, there is a slight dent on the lock down bar but I don't think it's anything too significant and was there before being powder coated. I have also fitted a brand new led type fluorescent tube and the light is much better, not so much heat generated and eliminates the back emf problems that can occur with normal tubes on start up especially as they get older and take more time to light, and the old tubes would sometimes lock up the mpu due to a big burst of radio frequency as they initially light up.I think this is a good example of a fairly unusual game and most I have seen over the years have been beaten to death because of the ball speed of the game, and it is really fast, probably one of the fastest games and has the most powerful coils that I've seen in a while. I put a switch on the topper fan as it spins quite a lot during the game and as it's in a cold workshop it can be a bit drafty though it would probably be fine in a heated house. The dot matrix display is very good, well lit and no warm up, the artwork on the playfield is surprisingly good and unworn considering the ball speed, there was some wear to an insert (van number 1) at the bottom of the ramp, I have grafted a new decal on and mylared it so it looks good and lights up correctly. When I got the machine the truck was missing so I have mounted a new German beer tanker with similar colours to the playfield, I think the film has a fuel tanker as when the ball goes around the pop bumpers the aim is to destroy a tanker with each pop.
I think it's a really good different fun game and have enjoyed playing it. I have fitted 5 new carbon steel pinballs which should resist becoming magnetised for a time, though I would recommend replacing the balls once a year. There was only 1600 made so they're pretty tricky to find especially in a good playable condition. If you want any more hi-res photo's you're quite welcome to contact me on O799O6O7O96 and I can send you some. The pinball is quite large and heavy but the backbox folds and the legs come off, so it should fit in an Escort van sized vehicle upwards, and I will help you load also.
