Rated 5 out of 5 by JenR Great Machine We have this machine for our son and we love it. It is a hit with all the neighborhood kids (from 5-15 years old). We did accidentally break the pick-up tube (our fault) and customer service sent us one immediately to replace it. Great machine and great customer service. July 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by TJ kept blowing fuses our pitching machine keeps on blowing the fuse and I would not recommend it . We have all ready blown six fuses and have not hit one ball it worked once and it never worked again. I would not recommend this product.:( June 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by JenC Great...but Kids love it, but, as the other review warned, the fuse does blow. As soon as we turned it on, the fuse blew within 30 seconds. If you can deal with that happening on a frequent basis, than the product is worth it. We used tin foil as a temporary fix. June 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Holly619 Fuse problems Don't waste your money! Major fuse problems! Had it running for the first time for an hour and went through 6 fuses. And the fuses for this machine are expensive. Huge disappointment. May 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick G GREAT BUY PERFECT FOR THE YOUNG ONES Bought this for my son when he was 5. Thought he wouldn't be able to use it for a few years,but got it for a great price, so bought it anyways. We ended up sing it right away and am on the second year using it. Balls are soft enough my 3 year old daughter laughed when she got hit at the fast pitch. Even used the machine with my 10 year old nephew and he wasn't to old for it. I've bought junk machines before and have been very disappointed. This was worth every penny and I even bought a second one for my nephews in Florida. March 8, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by al This order was a replacement that I had to return the original one because it didn't work properly. It's sad that I purchased it for my nephew for Christmas and he had to wait until January 7 to get to use it..He is 8 years old and on a year around baseball team. He actually pretty good already hitting a home run and wants to improve his hitting and why I bought the pitching machine.. wanted to get him your $500.00 machine but I can't afford it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by nama2 Worth every cent! I bought this as a gift for my 8 yr old grandson for Christmas, who is quite the baseball enthusiast. Not only is it a "hit" with him, everyone in the family had to get in on the fun. It is an amazing, affordable, well made pitching device. Do not hesitate to purchase. One tip...buy more than one bag of balls..more like three!! December 29, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Joe Fuse is bad Same problem as the review above me. Bought this unit and it keeps blowing the fuse! Not to mention the machine is very innacurate and is difficult to run. December 28, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by fuse issue dissapointment I bought this machine last year. Great idea for the price. The PROBLEM is that it keeps BLOWING fuses. I went to radio shack and bought several packs. After several weeks it kept blowing fuses so I returned it. I am still looking for a medium priced unit without spending thousands for a unit. Dicks was fine with the return December 21, 2013
