  • I purchased a single machine. Placing the machine has been very difficult. However, my biggest complaint is in the company claiming that the owner of the bar will cover the cost of insuring the machine. FALSE! The owner of the machine must cover all insurance costs, including liability. That will easily add $500-$1,000/yr to the costs of doing business. Had I known that, I probably would not have pursued this venture. You can certainly make money with these machines, but don’t invest $4k unless you have additional start up costs available to get this off the ground.

  • Hi, I have Bought a Boxer Machine with Neil on January 2012. I Have somme problems about this Machine.
    * The Ball defleated each 2 hours after strokes, Please, Where and How can I buy another Inner Tube for the Ball.
    * The Ball turn after each stroke.
    Can You tell me How can I stop the turn of the Ball
    *The Bill acceptor cannot work, There are any lights.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Best Regards
    Mr LO TAI

  • Some money must be stuck in your bill acceptor that’s why the lights off
    You can replace that deflating ball with any inflatable kids ball from the dollar store
    A 3/4in wrench you will need to tighten up the bag so it will not turn

  • They went out of business. Cool machine. Too expensive. You must split commission with owner of bar. The machines have non-stacker bill validators, dollars bills always getting stuck. No insurance cimpany wants to touch this company . It will cost you 100 month for liability only. My 50 vending machines soda and snack only cost me 20 dollars a month. THis was a good fad for a few years. If you have a machine, keep it in your gameroom, it is fun to punch after a few beers.

    I bought a machine….years ago….not from knockout vending….but another company. Luckily…..the company I bought it from bought it back because they knew some lady who wanted one. I got lucky. I got most of my money back. It was in a sports bar……..didn’t make much money. Glad I didn’t went with knockout vending. Doesn’t surprise me they went out of business. Its not a big money maker. Sales guy there sucked.
