Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arm saver This machine has been great so far. It has saved my arm at BP. The kids love it and we have become the envy of our league. Very good construction. I am going to install a cage of some sort over the wheel. We use it at practice and the exposed wheel could be a little bit of a safety issue with young kids. Great product for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Must Buy!!!!! I read several of the comments about this machine and was a little skeptical. I mean....can you really buy a pitching machine for $200 and it deliver better than the more expensive JUGS machines. I have been using this product with my daughter for roughly 5 months. It delivers consistent pitches. As noted, you MUST buy the fence buster balls as well. Some may frown at this part as the balls are softer and 12 inches whereas most fast pitch softballs are 11 inch. My daughter swings a $300 bat and I don't worry about wearing it out hitting these "softer" balls. I also like to do defensive drills with this machine. You can shoot pop flies, line drives, and grounders. You can do this confidently as the setup is safe as compared to harder balls. Long term durability remains to be seen. You will not go wrong with this machine!!!! April 13, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed It will NOT pitch 12" regulation softballs as it stated. You will have to buy the fence buster balls whether it's for baseball or softball. The description said it would pitch regulation softballs and you had to buy fence buster ball for baseballs. I was very disappointed, the whole reason I bought it was because it was supposed to pitch regulation softballs. October 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great buy It's a great buy. Throws consistent strikes and change speeds. Works good for hitting, fielding, pop flies and for catchers. June 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far, so good - probably full 5 stars but going to wait for a bit to make sure quality holds up I enjoyed using this with my 8 year old son who is very into baseball right now. Setup with the net (you can get) wasn't that bad and it does shoot very consistent perfect pitches. Not crazy unpredictable pitches like other machines at all. It's literally the exact same pitch every time over and over again. One thing after to note AFTER I was beamed in the face at about 40 MPG :-) was that if you turn up the speed, the ball naturally shoots higher without changing the trajectory of the swivel device so watch out for that.. Speed up then tilt town, if you want it to go to the same place in the strike zone. Next thing is trying to figure out how to power this bad boy at the park..and I don't feel like buying a generator. Also can't find (the ball feeder pictured on the documentation) for it but I'm thinking that would be essential as well so we can setup and just hit ball after ball without worry about having me standing there serving up each one on a platter..I may as well just throw them at that point. NOTE: it only works with their proprietary expensive yellow or white balls which are pretty much just like regulation baseballs. I tried a regular baseball and somehow it knew not to throw it right and it pittered off the the left and was un-usable. Their balls aren't cheap which is annoying because you really want to have like 50-60 of them on hand for a good session so swagging don't have to happen for awhile April 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this machine!!! I will say this is the best machine ever. My son was horrible and I mean horrible at baseball. He could barley hit the ball. So we bought this machine and 24 balls. The balls were a bit pricey though. After a week his game improved so much the coach wanted to know what we were doing so he could teach the other boys. I would definitely recommend this machine to anyone that is looking to improve their game. Well worth the money by far. March 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine - Great Customer Service From Jugs This machine replaced our beginner pitching machine. My 6 & 9 year-olds commented on how much more accurate this machine is after only 5 minutes of play. It is made of durable materials, and every part of it feels very solid. This machine is sure to last. We had some frustrations with our first machine, but this is definitely a step up and worth the money if you are comparison shopping. Jugs customer service exceed my expectations! Note that this does not ship with any balls in the box, and it is a single-feed unit (probably adult only for now at my house). However, the balls are available at Dick's Sporting Goods, and Jugs does make an attachment to hold more balls for this machine. Great buy! September 22, 2013
