Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must have ideal conditions! Great concept but like everything these days it's cheaply made and for what it cost I don't let my boys use it without me. Once you get it level and the height zeroed in it is fun and great practice. But let me say there's not many days with no wind I mean it has to be almost zero or the balls are everywhere. Needs flat level ground and I mounted it to a piece of plywood because it would wobble and move on flat level grass. Don't get me wrong it's great practice for all ages from 5 to 55 but for over 60$ I want to use it anytime it's dry and not have to constantly adjust it because we use it in the yard not the driveway. I would pay 100$ for one made better and with normal daily use in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped my 11 year old I've bought several machines for my son over the past 4 years. Some were expensive $700 to this SKLZ $60 one. I love this machine because it makes him react quickly to a very small ball. We use the quick stick to hit with which is only 12 oz., with a diameter of maybe an inch or inch and a half or so. I think it improves hand eye corodination because the ball and bat are smaller. I don't back up the machine to 30 ft. I put it about 10-15 feet away from him and the balls come at him faster. He gets so pumped when he gets a hit. Another advantage is we are able to use this in our house in a large room. You could also use in a garage or outside. My advice would be to buy the extra bucket of balls because they fly all over and you can lose them easier. The machine does take a minute to turn on etc., and isn't the most accurate, but kids need balls flying in different spots. I think it is a great training aide for all ages and it is fun. Not bad for the price if you ask me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy design, not durable or long-lasting I've been through 2 of these machines in about 10 months. In addition to being unstable and inconsistent in pitching, the motors give out in just a few months. Dick's let me return one but the replacement lasted only a couple months longer. We took care of the machine and followed the directions but the motors seem to fry in a very short period of time. At least we can use the small balls to hit for soft toss but the machine is a waste of money and makes me not want to buy any other SKLZ product that has a motor or something mechanical.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Idea Needs A Better Design motor takes to long to rev up ,base is to narrow for stability ,tubes make it unstable and inconsistent ,playing in a soft breeze or wind is a waste of time .seems more like a 25$ machine then the 60 I paid ! probably good for a basement practice session.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fun and good practice for the hitting enthusiast First, the SKLZ LB Pitching machine works as a reliable and realistic pitching machine to a distance between 30-32 feet. I wish something like this was available when I played 25 years ago. I've had great fun using this machine placing it on my stable wooden deck plugged into an outside outlet while I hit the balls into the back of the house from the backyard (outside). My only request for improvement for the machine is the "about" 5-second frequency between pitches ... it would be beneficial to have some kind of rotating indicator that can be seen as the gravity arms circle out of the way and release a ball into the machine. The timing is about 5-seconds in-between each pitch, but the practice value is limited to improving pitch selection discipline and lower body techniques without a more reliable timing indicator than "5-seconds" ... it could be improved to a more realistic "1-second" notification of an incoming pitch with a simple small color pitch indicator.With consideration to the previously mentioned remarks, if you are looking for keeping someone who likes hitting baseballs/softballs challenged and entertained this is a great toy that could be used inside in a large space, but I would expect most people would not have access to the inside space at home to set this up and use it with a full-swing.I have great fun with this machine. I set up my hitting position 32 feet from the machine. Past experience with machines used when I was playing high school and college baseball assisted me in determining that this machine would be most useful as a practice machine one-half the distance of the normal 65 feet between the pitcher and batter. At 32 feet, the variation of balls pitched in the strike zone is similar to a college team mate pitching live hitting practice. Do expect about 2-3 "balls" per 12 pitches and they will come in both a little high, a little low, and a little inside/outside. ... If you set it up farther than 30-32 feet, expect inaccuracy to be increased ... it isn't designed to be accurate beyond 30 feet. But, if you're just looking for an activity to have some fun and be challenged hitting a ball or practice bunting, go ahead and set it up anywhere and have a blast! :-)
