our wave is pretty much unsuable right now, and instead of fixing it they said they will buy us a brand new one :\ just curious what one of these buggers costs on average

I have no idea about the waves but I assume they should be a little more than a cart pusher which run around $5,000. When I first heard how much those cost I was blown away!

The average new cost is about $14,500


But when Spot buys them --- it's usually by the truck load - then distributes them to the regions - then district's


So the unit cost is closer to $12,500-ish

Do PFresh stores get new equipment? We're due for our update after Christmas. Both our Wave and Crown are horrible. Horrible as in service calls every month it seems, Plus the Wave stays on 2 bars at all times, no matter how long it's charged.

On the charger control board there's a dip-switch for wet or dry cell. If the batteries were replaced with wet-cells ( much cheaper ) and if the monkey didn't flip the switch ----- it wont charge properly.


Or the charging pack needs replacement


Or the batteries are shot and wont take / hold a charge

You should be getting 2 new crowns. On wave, your batteries need to be replaced like slave says.

We got a "new" one fourth quarter. It was actually refurbished as is completely hinky already. Took three years and a quarter mil estimated in vendor calls/ parts/ labor before we got a new one.
