The 2023 BOLA Automatic Ball Feeder accessory has been updated electronically to allow it to be controlled from the machine control panel. The user can adjust the time delay between deliveries (5 to 13 seconds). Balls are fed via a flexible tube which allows it to be used when the machine is set up for spin as well as pace and provides an exceptionally reliable and accurately timed feed. A new LED array gives a countdown indication of the ball release along with a beeper warning (which can be silenced). Key Fob remote control on/off switch allows single ball ‘fire’, start / stop of continuous feed required and also has a speed ‘nudge’ which allows the speed to be increased or decreased up to 5 mph (8 kph). The ball feeder offers a unique solo batting practice facility or the option to coach from any position. The 2023 BOLA Automatic Ball Feeder will only fit the 2019 BOLA Professional and later models, and is not compatible with earlier machines.
