Lobster 'Pickle Two' Ball Machine

The Lobster 'Pickle Two' Ball Machine is the newly realized version of the original Lobster, improved by adding a 2-line oscillation and electronic elevation. The 2-line feature can be used for singles or doubles. The elevation features makes adjustments to the launch angle quick and simple. The battery has also been upgraded in the standard model so that you can practice for longer periods of time, with 4-6 hours of play per charge.

The Lobster 'Pickle Two' Ball Machine holds up to 135 indoor or outdoor pickleballs (when stationary) and can fire them out at speeds of up to 60 mph. It can use both top and backspin so you can work on returning varied shots and improve your skills. The machine has a convenient folding handle with 8" wheels and an inverting hopper to move the 42 lb. machine stress-free. The external battery option lets you take the battery inside for a recharge while leaving the machine at its usual location. When set up in position for your shot, the machine will indeed hold 135 pickleballs. However, if you try to move the Lobster when the hopper is full, balls will spill out.

The Lobster 'Pickle Two' Ball Machine offers an excellent range of options and accessories so that you can customize your practice experience just the way you like it and continually challenge your abilities.

The Lobster 'Pickle Two' Ball Machine comes in two power options:
  • Internal Battery - the standard model
  • External Battery - allows you to take the battery inside for a recharge while leaving the machine at its usual location.

  • Just what I wanted

    Apr 21, 2022

    I have wanted a ball machine for awhile and kept comparing the machines out there and after using a friends lobster, I decided it was the one I wanted. I have only used it a couple times so far, but it is exactly what I wanted, and does everything I need it to. I am excited to drill on my own and use it in classes as well.

  • Love my machine!

    Mar 15, 2022

    I'm keeping five stars even though new balls gunked up the wheels within the week of owning. Apparently expect this with new balls. I'm currently looking into a way to "prepare" new balls so this doesn't happen. I realize you have to periodically clean the wheels with used balls. The machine itself does as expected, and I purchased the remote that does more. It's nice to have elevation at your fingertips. At 61, this machine is pretty light to put in and out of my car. The external battery is separate. I leave the machine in my car (during cool weather only), and charge the batter in the garage. The only thing you may find inconvenient is that when you move the machine on the court, you have to pick up the battery and move it too. I don't find it a nuisance though. Keep it at the base line or move it to the nvz and angle it for crosscourt dinks.

  • Received with quality control defects.

    Feb 8, 2022

    First machine had 3 defects. The second machine that was sent appears to work as designed. Remote was left out and is being shipped separately. Customer Tech support is the best you will find in any industry. Addressed the issue and quickly resolved.

  • Fun drilling machine

    The lobster 2 is definitely a worthwhile investment. My drives improved after just a few sessions with it and I have also been able to place it anywhere on the court to give me practice.The only drawback is it periodically shoots 2 balls at a time which isn’t helpful.

  • Pickleball Two Machine as good as advertised!

    Dec 29, 2021

    This machine is easy to set up, easy to move around, and easy to use. I have the external battery and just don't see how I can ever outlast it. I have been able to practice every type of shot from return of serve, to lob, to dinking. The biggest drawback/challenge to this machine is that lifting it in and out of a car or truck will be a bit challenging for some. It seems heavier than it's weight because there's not a great ergonomical way to lift it. It's fine for me, but I'm a very active 60-something who is in the gym 5 days a week.


  • Lobster Out Performs Tutor

    Jul 22, 2021

    I’ve used 2 Tutor machines & the Lobster Pickle Two. I strongly prefer Lobster because: • Mobility/transport o Lobster with remote battery is same machine weight, but the separate 12.5# battery is easier to move for recharging. o Lobster has sturdy 8” wheels- good for hauling across rough terrain. Tutor’s 3” wheels don’t seem up to the job. o Lobster handle is well placed & sized for comfort. • Ball bin was broken on all Tutor machines I’ve seen. • In addition to remote control for feed & oscillation (on/off), Lobster allows remote adjustment of ball speed, spin & elevation. • Lobster electric elevation has great flexibility including lobs to front or back court. For Tutors lob, I had to prop machine front up 5”. Also, elevation knobs wouldn’t engage so height continually changed. I highly recommend Lobster Pickle Two- it seems better engineered. Prices are similar when options are included. I had reliability problems initially, but I’m very happy with my new Lobster.
