In 1990, we began developing a personal pitching machine. It had to be affordable, light enough for the average person to carry with ease, quick to set up and take down, powerful enough to pitch real baseballs at fastball speeds and free of electrical cords. These parameters led us on a search for the most efficient means of projecting a ball. With the concerted efforts of an engineer and a physicist, we set out to solve the portable pitching machine riddle in two years tops. But each step revealed a new challenge. Unable to find a ready-made air compressor fit for the task, we resorted to building our own. And when off-the-shelf rechargeable battery units failed under the recoil of launching balls, we turned our expertise to crafting batteries. Ultimately, 10 years later nearly every aspect of the machine, including its quick-set-up tripod, was custom-made. And in 2000 Zooka Sports was officially launched.
The Zooka ZS740 and ZS720 doesn't look like conventional pitching machines because it doesn't work like them. While other machines depend on external wheels to pinch and propel the ball, the Zooka harnesses the power of compressed air. While conventional machines need a spool of extension cord, the Zooka draws power from a rechargeable battery. The Zooka also does away with confusing analog knobs in favor of an intuitive digital keypad and display. The resulting machine is powerful, streamlined and self-contained.
MORE PERSONAL THAN INSTITUTIONAL
Zooka Sports has no intention of cornering the institutional pitching machine market. There's no shortage of heavy machines for use at college facilities. But a need does exist for a powerful pitching machine that a team, parent or grandparent can easily tote between the backyard and ballpark, one that isn't dependent on a pile of extension cords or a gas generator. In coach-pitch leagues, for instance, the Zooka is gaining popularity for its ability to throw balls at consistent speeds and heights. After a one-minute setup, the Zooka can deliver an entire game of perfect pitches, making the game fair and more fun for kids. "When you think of all the situations where industrial pitching machines are impractical or prohibitively expensive, that's our market. And it's the lion's share.
We love our zooka machine but the auto feeder is a must have. My son and I use it all the time it allows me to set it. Load balls and go shag what he hits. It allows way more hitting reps we would otherwise not have.
Great addition to an awesome pitching machine
Love the simplicity of this machine, especially this add-on. Very convenient and easy to set up.
Does exactly what it's supposed to do!! Great product!
The Autoloader works great, as does the Zooka pitching machine. The Autoloader is quick and easy to attach to the machine, holds sixteen balls, and feeds them perfectly into the machine. Totally reliable and high quality. Absolutely no complaints.
A Must Have
This autoloader is a must have if you are using the Zooka pitching machine with a team, and a great luxury to have if you have a machine for personal use. 16 pitches is enough to get a trend, take time to regroup and coach, give the player a break and move on to the next rack or player. Concentrate on coaching your players, not loading baseballs!
Great auto mechanism
This is a must have for the Pitching machine.I've loaded up about 17 balls, then let the machine go auto feed..., which allows me to coach my son standing right next to him during batting session.
