    Comments about Tennis Tutor Pro Lite AC-powered Tennis Ball Machine:

    I actually purchased the battery powered version of this machine along with an external AC power pack; an odd combination since you still must give the unit a brief charge after using it with the AC power pack. I purchased a Tennis Tutor for its reputation for reliability and customer service among our club pros. This unit did not disappoint.

    This unit is light enough to place on top of a roller cart. I can carry a 75 ball hopper full of Wilson pressure less balls in one hand and pull the Tennis Tutor on top of a rolling cart containing an extension cord, battery eliminator, water bottle and racket with my other hand.

    The unit clearly has two switches, one for the launch motor and one for the oscillator motor. The unit continuously sweeps left and right when in oscillation mode. Height, power and ball feed rate are all adjustable. I used the oscillator mode for ground strokes and the fixed mode for volley practice. The height adjustment has no indents, so I must fire a few balls to set the height each time. Power is adequate for baseline ground strokes, but not overwhelming. This unit has no TopSpin mode.

    It takes a while for the launch motor to spin up, so you don't need a remote. I can turn on the launch motor and walk to the other side of the court before it fires. If you turn off the oscillator motor when it is aiming straight ahead there is no need to realign the machine before use.

    Very Basic Ball Machine

    By Marc 'The Shark' Seely

    from Lima, OH

    Pros

    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • No osciliation

    Best Uses

    • As a hitting lane machine

    Comments about Tennis Tutor Pro Lite AC-powered Tennis Ball Machine:

    This machine functions fine, it just doesn't have osciliation. I believe they make this machine just to get a price point in the market. My wife purchased this machine for me and the didn't really know what to look for in a tennis ball machine. I would return it, but the shipping back and the re-stocking fee amount to about [$] for a machine that retails for [$]. I called the manufacturer because the machine is advertised at 85mph and there is no way it hits that number. I got the run around from Tutor and was told I would need to return it to the dealer we bought it from. The machine is nothing more than a low cost hitting lane machine.
