– Regular speed ( +50 BPS)
– 3 AA batteries
– Adaptable Capacity 200-260 balls
– Weight: 576 g
Due to competition in the market for loaders, Dye proposes an original system that allows to switch from 200 balls to 260 balls and vice versa. This system is in a horizontal clip which allows to raise the hull, by sliding it to the right. This system is rather rigid and requires frequent use to have flexibility on his side.
R-2 Rotor operates using 3 AA batteries. It lights up like the first version, by an LED button. The novelty is the addition of a ball counter which goes to zero at each ignition of the rotor. Each time, from 110 balls, the rotor ring 2 times. A 160 ball from the rotor ring 3 times. Once reloader, you must press the button under the on / off button to turn the meter back to zero.
It is possible to cut the LED and / or sound on the motor rotor R-2. On the engine, there is a “lead” with 2 switches. The 1 is the LED. 2 corresponds to the sound. Placed one of the switches up and it is ON. Down, it is OFF.
Above the ON / OFF button on the engine, there is a screw to adjust the spring tension. Beware of extremes, there is a risk of breaking balls in the loader which is not advisable.
The R-2 Rotor retains the manual system to release the ball.
One of the points that made the success of Rotor disassembly ‘no-tools’, without tools. In the second version, the hood (QuickFeed) is very easy to disassemble with the help of a push button. As always the wound will require finesse with the spring. By cons unlike the old version, this is an advantage in case of rain or sun. In the old version, it was painful to move from cover to QuickFeed and vice versa. Here, with the usual, this is easy and fast.
On the contrary, where the system to push the balls on the first version was very accessible, here you will have to remove a plate, the Floor Tray, (here red) maintained by 3 clips. Use a sharp nail or pin.
Notice of Players:
The R-2 Rotor is solid and heavy. It weighs 576 g with batteries. It is, like its predecessor, of good quality and solid. One hears, unfortunately, not as on the Spire, logs impacts on its hull.
The R-2 Rotor like its predecessor, does not work with the original Reball.
Rotor R-2 is a worthy successor to its predecessor. We regret its price and the difficulty of dismantling which are, in our opinion, the 2 major defects of this loader especially vis-à-vis its competitors. It has the merit to innovate with its variable capacity but, unfortunately, we think this is not enough for the R-2 has established itself as leader in loaders as did its first version which was literally revolutionized the market loader with its no-tools and design consistency.
