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.
first automatic pinsetter was used by the bowl o drome bowling alley in mt. clemens mi. in app. 1951.
It is called a pinsetter
There is a Pinsetter, which is the mechancal device used to set and pick up the pins. I've never head of a bowling setter, however.
They can be set up manually or by use of a semi or automatic pinsetter.
Gravity comes to mind as the pins FALL into place in the rack.
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 pit and the pinsetter cycling for the next frame.
The number of moving parts will vary depending on the make and model of the pinsetter.
Behind the lane, there is a pinsetter that is fed pins and automatically stands them up in the places they should.
They either land on the pin deck, drop in the pit, or fall in the gutter. The pinsetter then picks up an pins left and the sweep dumps all the pins into the pit to be resorted into pinsetter for the next frame.
By knocking down all 10 pins, with the bowling ball, with one shot. strikes should not be counted if the pinsetter(machine that picks up the remaining pins)knocks over a pin(s)
almost a quart!
If you are referring to the pinsetter, A2 is a popular brand by Brunswick. If you are referring to a ball polisher machine, I prefer the Luster King series.
The device, manual or automated, is called the "ball return." Modern versions are often incorporated into the pinsetter devices that reset pins and clear the lanes.
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.
The time will depend on the number of strikes bowled, the speed of the pinsetter, the speed of the ball return system and the general speed of the player in how long it takes to prepare and throw the ball.
$2,000,000.00It's not as simple as you'd thinkI 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. However, if you are okay with reconditioned pinsetter machines, you should check out Fusion Bowling.
A team in bowling can be as few as two bowlers, but could have usually as much as 5.
It depends where you want to go bowling.
