A2 is a Brunswick made machine. These appear to be AMF 82-70 machines.

Author Leah Gill (3 years)
clearly that guy that told you that thoes are a2 clearly has not workted on
them they are a pain in the butt and toldly diffrent than these amf 82 70s

Author WolfNSmurfProduction (3 years)
@yruwatchingnow No they are AMF, and im pretty sure AMF has A2 models too.
because it says A-2 on the back of those, and in the front it has an AMF
symbol. Im not entirely sure i should google it later. thnx for the comment

there should be signs at the back of the alley saying 'warning bowlers, do
not put your hands in the machines while they're on'

get taken out.

Video could be better. Out of focus and stuff in the way. Make it smoother

Author 219caleb (2 years)
that's an AMF 2-30 or an 82-70

Author rustytrombonerz (3 years)
Those are certainly not Brunswick A-2 machines, as has already been stated.
AMF machines have distributors on the top of the table that "distribute"
the pins to their proper locations on the table (as seen in the video) An
A-2 has a pin conveyor, which is an angled ramp with 2 belts in it that
brings the pin up to a rotating "turret" on top of the deck (which is AMF
speak for table.) I know this because I've been a mechanic on AMF 8230's,
8270s and both Brunswick A's and A-2's.

I'll bet these idiots don't have all their fingers. @ 4:24 the dink is
showing a badly worn curtain and why pins get stuck or come through it, and
at 4:31 a ball clearly hits right where his hand was. What a dumbass!!

Author WolfNSmurfProduction (2 years)
@pinboyamf They say a-2 on them....

@Beerdude1000 Hey! Look down for a little bit and see how many people have
already said that and disliked this video because they think they are
right! I know its an 82-70 but whats the point in changing it? You would
still be an asshole! Have a nice day sir.

they now use 'glow orange' for Xtreme bowl. i also agree the Brunswick A2
is a piece of junk but the new GS-X which is a lot like an amf is a lot
easier and better to work on
