Troubleshooting the BatAction Machine

Today we will discuss 2 situations that some of our BatAction Machine owners have encountered over the years. The BatAction Machine has a very simple design and requires very little troubleshooting. However, the 2 following things could happen to your BatAction and we offer the solution to each below.

Problem 1: The BatAction powerbands get caught up on the height adjustment knob when the unit rotates around after the hitter contacts the ball.

Solution: Always make sure the height adjustment collar's knob is lined up directly under the knob on the right side of the orange top component. The top component is the orange 2" square metal piece that houses the square end of the impact head ball component. Making sure these two knobs stay lined up under one another should correct this problem.

Problem 2: When hit, the ball will not come back to the hitter smoothly. Instead, it stops or pauses when returning to the hitter.

Solution: If this problem occurs, all you need to do is lubricate the axle of your machine. The axle is the shaft that rotates inside the column housing. We recommend a heavy duty type grease be used so you will not have to do this very often. You can also use a spray lubricant. However, if you use a spray lubricant, such as silicone, you will have to re-apply on a regular basis. The better grease you use, the less you have to re-apply. If you use a good grease, you should only have to grease the unit 1 time per year.

Hopefully, this info will help you BatAction owners get the most out of your investment.

Have a nice day, Nick
