How much is a bowling pinsetter?
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.
I have worked in the bowling industry since 1976.
When the pros are bowling on TV in the tournament finals, each lane has 21 pins. This is so there will always be ten pins in the pinsetter to be placed on the lane immediately after one of the bowlers throws a strike so there will be no wasted time. The typical house uses 21 pins for the pinsetter. This way there is always 10 pins available to set. Ten on the lane, eleven between…
The reset button is a way to manually trigger the sweeper if your ball doesn't do it automatically. On the first shot of a frame, the reset button triggers the pinsetter to pick up any pins still standing before the sweeper clears the deck. On the second shot of the frame, the reset button triggers the sweeper to clear the deck and the pinsetter to set a new rack of ten pins.
$2,000,000.00 It's not as simple as you'd think I went to Brunswick's website for this because they have good numbers. By the time they get to the end of it, you're looking at between $90,000 and $165,000 per lane for a bowling-only center, depending on about three million variables. BTW, why only 10 lanes? Most centers do it in multiples of four. Brunswick is the way to go if you want the best, all-new equipment…
