Pipeline Games will introduce an innovative new crane game, “Mr. Vacuum” at the Bowl Expo next week. Unlike most cranes that utilize a claw to pick up the prizes, Mr. Vacuum operates on suction power. In addition, it’s small size gives it a lot of versatility as far as where it can be placed.

We’ve been testing the Mr. Vacuum crane for a couple of months now. The vacuum is able to pick up just about anything that has a smooth surface… anything from a gift card to an iPod, to a 3” capsule, so the operator can really tailor the prize selection to a particular location,” stated Dave Peckels, Vice President at Pipeline.

Mr. Vacuum can be wall mounted, placed on a counter or table, or mounted to an optional base unit. Measuring just 24” wide and 17” deep, it can be placed in locations where space is limited, or where a location owner won’t allow a full-sized crane. “We believe that Mr. Vacuum will open up a lot of locations to cranes that in the past had stayed away from them due to their large size,” stated Peckels.
