    It's a simple design. Not very attractive but from people who had them. They worked. I can understand the original price being high due to R&D but resale value higher than original. But it is in Hawaii. So maybe it comes with a coconut.

    I think they were around $150 when they were first available. When Frank stopped making them, they went up to about $250-300. They're good, I've got a couple of them and have never had any problems with them, but I'm not sure they're $575 good.

    Still it's a sellers market with ball lifters at the moment. The orange Japanese ball lifters seem to be advertised at about 3 times what I paid for mine.

    Always wanted one of those and definitely need one more ball lifter to finish a project. At that price though it just does not make sense for me.

    Hello,

    original price was 89.- Euro plus shipping 11.- Euro or so. Honestly, for $550 I would build you Balldozers day and night. That's too much. I heard a guy from the Netherlands is trying to build them again, together with Jan. He just asked me if I allow him to use the "original" name wich is very nice of him. Hope they went well, I have no shares in this project.

    This one is not built by me. I can see it on the wire color and some parts.

    Hi guys, Iím the dutch guy Berzerk is talking about.
    The start was slow, but I have succesfully built 4 dozers.
    1st was the prototype to study building. Now 1 have 2 ready for Jan of Dragonfly Amusement and 1 for sale.
    Now Iím going to start working on pre fabrication to build more in 2019.
    I have a page on facebook called Pachinko Balldozer to stay updated on the lifters.
    If anyone is interested in them, thatís the place to be.
