The average cost for a new 8280 pinsetter is around 8500.00 to 10,000.00 depending where you purchase it. You can also buy re-manufactured Brunswick model a2 pisetter for around 8500.00 each. That's only for the pinsetter, you would still need to purchase the 60 ft wood or sinthetic lane plus a ball return scoring equipment ect. All that considered you would have an investment of close to 15000,00.00 to 20,000.00 per lane.
