QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Can you use this for waffle balls? Specifically the distance controlled snap-back balls?
You can use any ball on this machine as long as it is the same size as regular baseballs which is 9".
What is the range of speed?
Speed range is between 25 - 48 MPH.
What size is the motor on theHTR299 and I it will pitch the 10 years and older baseballs . . .correct ? also . . . does the HTR299 hold up to prolonged use ?
This machine has quarter horsepower motor. If your 10 year old baseballs are still in good condition, this machine should still be able to pitch them.
However, we recommend using flat seamed leather pitching machine balls for this machine as the protruding seams on a regular baseball may cause the machine to pitch inaccurately.
These machines are designed for ball practice and prolonged use as well.

Where can you purchase a d/c battery for the batting machine and can you use a d/c battery ack?
Yes, you can use a d/c battery pack on this machine but you will also need to use an inverter with the battery, this is because the machine needs a/c power.
The manufacturer recommends using a 72 amp hour deep cycle marine battery and you can get these on local battery stores or other online stores as well.

I have had this machine for almost1 yer now. It’s the perfect machine to teach batting mechanics. It is not super heavy duty but it is defiantly not a toy. I use it w my 6 and 8 year olds all the time for batting practice and they love it. Works best with foam style practice balls (light flight). Doesn’t work so well with regulation weight dimple balls. I brought it to my little league practice for pop-up drills and it’s a little under powered for that unless I use the foam balls. For that reason alone I am looking to upgrade to a bigger machine, but will continue to use H Jr for years.
great little pitching machine
Great machine for the price! My 8 year old son loves it! I think the Heater dimpled balls work best, but will work with leather hardballs. The dimpled pitching machine balls are more accurate where the hardballs are unpredictable. Great product!
My brother in law coach loved it for our grandson
Surprisingly good quality for the price. The first ball tends to come out slow as the wheel takes a few seconds to spin up to speed but after that it is very consistent. It has even taken a solid line drive hit from an adult batter and survived unscathed.
we love it !
