Pickleball Tutor Machine

Free 5 Dozen Neon Dura Fast 40 Balls (MSRP $144.95)

The Pickleball Tutor Machine may be small, but it sure is mighty! This revolutionary machine is only 12 x 18 inches wide and 20 inches deep, making it almost half the size of other machines on the market. It also weighs only 29 pounds – easy to transport to any pickleball court imaginable. This machine can hold up to a whopping 125 pickleballs. Shots are customizable: choose from a high lob, a short dink or a quick, direct fire at speeds up to 50 miles per hour.

The Pickleball Tutor Machine is available in battery-powered or AC models. When the battery is fully charged, it can last up to 2-3 hours. Players can program the machine to fire at intervals between 1 and 10 seconds depending on how quick you want your game to be.

The Pickleball Tutor Machine is available in oscillating and non-oscillating options (battery or AC power). The oscillating model will randomly fire side-to-side shots, or you can select the 2-line version to set separate shot locations. Conversely, the non-oscillating version will fire straight shots in whichever direction the machine is pointed. The machine can be used with either indoor or outdoor pickleballs.

Wireless 2-Function Remote ($200.00): Controls ball feed on/off and machine oscillation on/off. The Wireless 2-Function Remote works with oscillating machines only and must be ordered at the time the machine is ordered for configuration by the manufacturer.

2-Line Oscillation ($200.00): This feature alternates shots between two preset locations on your court. Players can practice forehand and backhand shots in addition to rapid drills or get additional use out of the Tutor by allowing two players to practice at the same time. This option must be ordered at the time machine is ordered for configuration by the manufacturer.

Electronic Elevation Feature ($100.00): A simple electronic switch on the control panel will allow you to control ball trajectory instead of using the standard manual knob which requires loosening and re-tightening. This option must be ordered at the time machine is ordered for configuration by the manufacturer.

Additional Accessories available:
External Battery Pack: ($175.00): Attaches to the machine through the charging jack and will provide an additional 4-6 hours of run time. Battery pack weighs approximately 12 pounds. Can only be used with the battery-powered model.

External AC Power Supply: ($125.00):
External AC Power supply allows you to plug your battery-powered Tutor Machine into a wall outlet.

Weatherproof Cover: ($40.00): Light gray vinyl cover.

The Pickleball Tutor Machine is covered by the manufacturer for 3 years, and the battery is covered for 1 year.

Ball Machine July 13, 2017
Reviewer: William Lightle from Hudson, WI United States  

Works good.  Adjustment for elevation angle could be improved otherwise worked well. Needed to play with adjustments but once done worked with Pure2 outdoor balls, Dura outdoor balls, and River Styx indoor all loaded at same time. Would recommend wireless remote operation upgrade.

Pickleball Tutor July 10, 2017
Reviewer: RON POWERS  
Prior to purchase I was not sure about the Pickleball Tutor and how well it would work. I wanted something I would use for practice drills. The Tutor is amazing! I can make it do any shot I want as many times as I want. The ball does not come out exactly the same every time so it is similar to be hit by a person. I bought a video camera and tape everything. I am now renting out the Tutor and will have my original investment back in no time. For $800 the Tutor should have the oscillator and remote functionality. I did not purchase either upgrade.

Maintenance June 26, 2017
Reviewer: WJP from Texas  
The machine is very good except that it is very high maintenance.  For me, it is about one hour maintenance for every couple hours of use.  There is a resin that builds up on the throwing drums that comes from the balls which is very hard to get off and the machine won't work right if you allow it to build up.  No solvents seem to work nor does sanding.  I have to pick it off with my fingernail.  Very tedious but necessary for smooth operation.
