BRAND NEW VORTEX TUNNEL for sale...used as display model only. Custom built in our shop with all bells & whistles. This is a professional grade, extreme use tunnel..."best built tunnel around". Although about a year old, this is brand new but may have a few surface scratches due to set-up & knock down in our displays. Check out our standard features which others consider upgrades (up-charges);

*Aircraft Grade Aluminum Channel Mandrel Bent Rings
*Heavy Duty Aluminum "Cage" Struts
* 8' Diameter X 20' Long Tunnel
*HD Fire Retardant Fabric Tunnel-Velcro Attached
* Attached Fire Certification Label

*EZ Assembly & Dis-assembly for Shipping & Storage
* Color Coded / Labeled Parts & Full Directions

This is a $8,900. unit we'll let go for $6,900. Due to the large/odd shape of the components we would prefer pick-up at our shop (we are located just outside Atlantic City, NJ) or we can deliver & help set up (same day) for $1.50 per mile...calculated in one direction. If unit must be shipped via freight there will be an additional $300.00 crating charge plus freight cost added.
We also build custom or themed Tunnels and our new Vac-Formed "Gore-Tex" Tunnel. For the DIY we offer the individual parts & blueprints as well. Any questions, feel free to contact me either through the forum or PM me. Hopefully get the video up here soon...having problems loading it though.:confused:

Pretty cool! It looks like it spins faster then the norm. Looks good.

What are the rings & tunnel pipes made of? Do you have a pic of the joint where the rings meet thier side poles?

Thanks,

Stew

Hey Stew,
In the video we do have the tunnel spinning faster than most but we build our tunnels with adjustable speed controls so you can set the speed you prefer. Because our rings are precision mandrel bent our tunnels spin flawlessly so you can spin them faster than most...I like the faster speed myself!;)

I don't have any pictures of the actual joint but our rings are Aircraft grade Aluminum 2" x 1 1/4" channel & our "cage" supports are made from 1 1/4" schedule 40 aluminum & are bolted to 1 3/8" solid aluminum bungs welded to the side of the rings. This all makes for a strong yet lightweight rotating cage assembly that spins true & precise.

BTW...as I am sure anyone looking at purchasing a Vortex Tunnel knows the shipping is a hassle with these types of props due to the volume of space they require to ship as well as the weight. So if anyone is interested we can deliver this tunnel to Transworld in March for a nominal fee...saving you big $$$. Shoot me a PM if your interested! Thanks.
