The equipment must be used with the proper power source and extension cord.
A 20-amp service is recommended for continuous operation of the machines. Use a minimum of #14/3 grounded power cord up to 200 ft. in length. A longer cord will require the opinion of a licensed electrician. Any generator that is used must generate “clean electricity”. We recommend a minimum of 1000 watt up to 2000 watt Honda generator with inverter technology. Weight of these generators is approximately 27 lbs., similar to the weight of a battery, and they are extremely portable. Unless the generator provides “clean electricity”, the power surges from the generator will cause a machine to surge and become erratic, it will deliver a ball very inconsistently.
Both the baseball and softball machines must be used with the proper balls.
The baseball and softball machines will throw almost any ball including leather, poly or foam balls. It is always best to use balls that are the same type and age to ensure accuracy. Synthetic balls are not recommended under any circumstances as they will not only wear rapidly, but will often leave a residue on the throwing wheels. See the respective manual for instructions on how to clean build-up off of a throwing wheel.
In baseball and softball, ball delivery is easily dialed in using the pitch selection chart.
If the machine dials are all set at the same number, you will get a ball delivered with no spin. In baseball this is called a knuckleball, a pitch that is unpredictable and can be perceived as erratic. To get a true fastball or breaking pitch the dials must be set at varying positions that are outlined on the pitch selection chart on the machine. Please reference this chart to easily dial-in your desired pitch.
