I remember the Grand Canyon, or at least I remember the big rotating drums between decks (perhaps they featured on other Cromptons pushers of the era?).

The floor-standing pushers with low coin entry and the spinning steel brush that flicked the coin up to the top deck were quite distinctive - I recall seeing one appear for sale in Essex via ebay not all that long ago and was very tempted but a combination of factors saw it rescued by someone else.

At least one design (10p play) featured a jackpot (£1.50) - coins would occasionally get nudged along a central ramp/passageway that, IIRC, split in two at the front of the machine - coins would randomly filter either left or right as the path was slightly wider than the coin and eventually fall into a stack, which when complete would tip the counterbalance and dump into the tray with a satisfying crash.

There was a triple-deck model that I was never particularly keen on - I remember the upper two decks being very shallow and coins did not seem to stack up to the same degree - you would be lucky to get one coin cascade all the way to the lower deck and several toppling from a single play was rare.

I recall the Formica-clad CakeWalk 6-player 3x2 machines which, as a kid in the 80s, seemed old at the time - high full-width wooden coin trays, with tall bright orange and yellow pushers/playfields and a row of steel pins separating one side from the other.
Guessing they may have first appeared in the 70s.


Possibly a bit recent to get much mention here but if anyone has any photos, flyers or recollections of names, dates etc. would love to hear/see - so few seem to have survived that I haven't seen most for years.

Lovely machine,

I also liked the video you did of the Easypush. I am going to have to keep my eye out for one of these.!

Thanks for sharing,
Mark

The Easy Push, nice machine but boring as it did not really stack many coins over the edge. I did make a very good copy of the Rotor Soccer many years ago for Paul Mitchel. I think I still have pics of the one I made and the one I copied, although I don't know where he borrowed it from. Was it you PM?
