    Can you set this back at 40 feet and expect it to throw strikes with softballs and wiffleballs?

    • A. Your can leisurely load and pitch 3 balls a minute. Yes, it works great from 40 feet. I have used hard balls, softer tee balls, and baseball sized whiffle balls from that distance. You need to make small, easy adjustments in the settings to accomodate different types of balls.

    • A. It literally takes maybe 5 seconds to reload, if you have a bucket of balls you can wear a young hitter out in less than 10 minutes. It is a very simple throwing arm you simply pull it back lock it under the release mechanism that is attached to the hand lever, load the ball on the throwing arm step on the foot lever and pull the hand lever to throw the next pitch. If your going as fast as you can reload the machine in 10 minutes you can achive at least 50-75 pitches.

    I have had it for 2 years and use it for softball and baseball with both of my kids playing ball. Not only is it great that you don't need electricity, but it is around 20 lbs. and easy to setup and move. Both of my kids have drastically improved their hitting by practicing off this machine. It has a wide variety of setting to adjust the pitches higher, lower, faster and slower. It is very similar to an actual pitcher in that has variances in pitches so they move around a little in the zone and sometimes out of the strike zone a bit. That way the kids learn that every pitch isn't good and learn what to swing at and what to let go by. Highly recommend for both baseball & softball!!!

    This is a great machine for baseball or softball either one. Being a coach of two fast-pitch girls teams I would have to say it has helped us tremendously. If you use real softballs or baseballs you may control the pitch inside outside high in the zone or low, it is easy to do once you learn how. It all has to do with placing the ball on the arm in either a two seam or four seam for high or low in the zone, or seam tilted to the inside for an outside pitch or outside for an inside pitch, the guide is a little off on the speed, we found it to be actually a little faster than what it states (it threw a 12 inch thunder heat fast-pitch ball 57 mph from a 40 foot rubber, that was the average with 36 balls) although i might just have a tighter spring (they do tend to vary in tension, but just feel it out), all in all it is great if you take the time to learn how to use it properly.

    I have used one of these coaching 8U, 10U, up to 14 years old in LL & Slow pitch for adults. It is extremely accurate and is a great machine as it is the only one simulating arm action. I use it for batting practice, ground ball drills, and fly ball drills. It gives every athlete an equal chance at a quality attempt and is not dependent on a coach hitting consistent balls to players. I would not want to start a season without one.

    I struggled trying to throw my 7 year old son consistent strikes while practicing at home. I pitched up thought high school so I can throw a fast strike but practicing at home with plastic practice balls is very difficult. I can't use regular balls as we'd lose them in the woods or break a windows. The UPM 45 will throw a hard baseball, soft t-ball, plastic practice ball, tennis ball or any other type of ball very consistently. I wish I knew about these last year when my son started playing ball. The teams were all coach pitch last year but have since changed to machine pitch using the UPM 45. I even picked up a 12'x14'x70' batting cage net just so we can use the UPM 45 with real baseballs in the yard. I wish they had these when I was a kid.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Our 9-12 league uses these for the 9-year-olds in games. No chronograph, so I'm not sure how accurate the speed rating is. To get the most consistent ball flight, 1) use one type/make/model of ball, 2) always orient the ball exactly the same on the arm (I've chosen one specific part of the label facing up, with the curve of the "horseshoe" pointed to my right each time), 3) be sure the base is firmly planted on/in ground -- spikes in firmly; keep rear of base from "walking" to the side after repeated pitches, 4) step full-weight onto the power lever and stay on it through the throw, 5) pull the release arm consistently and fairly quickly -- get in a one-two rhythm of "signal the player" - "snap the release". The pitches will NOT be EXACTLY the same, but much more consistent than throwing by hand.
