The 145  Snacktron 1 Snack Merchandiser was a popular model with those in vending trade. Although it’s somewhat outdated the 145 series machines were well made and continue perform well to this day. They were the first generation of machines from National to have factory installed bill acceptors, the original bill acceptor by Maka Corp being the machine's weakest link. Retrofitting the 145 Snacktron with the new Mars MEI VN2500 series bill acceptor brings its ability to accept and process dollar bills to today’s current standards.   

We reface these machines with high-grade commercial vinyl.  During this process, all vertical and horizontal trims are removed and replaced, as needed.  In addition, each face panel is removed and has new vinyl applied to it. The end result is a new look that will stand the test of time with no exposed edges or seams for customers to pick at or peel. Mechanically, we address several minor inherent problems with manufacturer-approved procedures, retrofit the bill acceptor with a Mars MEI VN2500 series, and upgrade the coin changer to the Mars MEI TRC6000. You can expect this 145 Snack Center to be in 100% working order.
