Rated 5 out of 5 by works great I bought one of these a few weeks ago after some research on what was out there. For my situation I wanted a light portable machine that I would transport to a field a half mile from my house. I didn't want to provide ac power through an inverter through my vehicle or a generator. I also wanted it to use regular baseballs. After a little research I came across this machine and a lot of user reviews on it. The reviews in general were very positive with a few bad ones saying the machine was not throwing consistently. I saw some suggestions to enhance repeatability of the machine's pitch and they made sense. So I bought one and have used it to throw a 1000 or so pitches and fly balls recently and I can tell you this machine performs exactly as advertized. I did extend the anchors out to 6" as recommended for loose soil infields. It consistently delivers pitches from 46 feet at his machine pitch game speed of 40 mph or up to 50 mph with regular baseballs, with a max 4-6" variation from center. This keeps it in the strike zone but the batter does need to adapt to the minor variations as in game conditions. I think I can use it for a few more years at this speed by just moving in closer to simulate higher speeds. As far as the groundball and flyball training I think the flyball training is useful for young players. Hitting flyballs to a consistent spot within my grandson's range I was about 30% successful. With this machine I can vary left and right on each ball by about 20 to 25 feet on each flyball which travels about 120 feet or so at max spring tension. It allows him to judge, track, catch, and throw back a slightly different flyball every 20 seconds or so. It really helped him on that and his fielding on flyballs has improved greatly. The gound ball option I haven't used much, I can do better with a bat or throwing them. Great product and complete parts support, it is used by a lot of leagues as their pitch machine. June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accurate, Reliable, and a Great Pitching Machine! No plug-in no problem! This pitching machine is a wonderful addition to our baseball practice. It is the nicest single-load mechanical pitching machine, with pin-point accuracy. Easy to set-up, light-weight, and extremely versatile no matter where practice ends up at. For our youth baseball team, you can't get any better than this machine! May 31, 2016
