Master Pitching Machine Arm Style Pitching Machines Should Be In Your Future? The Iron Mike MP-4 Pro vs Iron Mike MP-6 Though you are on our MP 4 page, I thought it would be helpful to give you some info on the nearly identical MP-6 too:
Both of these Hopper-Fed Iron Mike arm style pitching machine models from Master Pitching Machine look the same & are actually very similar. Once you know that you want an arm style pitching machine that holds and throws an almost unlimited number of balls, it only about figuring out which model.
The Major Master Pitching Machine Differences
- The MP 4 Includes Added Protective Steel Facing (to protect from direct ball hits) (we advise our MP-6 customers to add our 7' x 7' machine guard protective screen instead)
- The MP 4 Carries A Slightly Higher Shipping Cost - added weight
- The MP 4 Includes The Shaker* - which is an option on the MP-6 *The Shaker is a simple add-on unit that overcomes the inherent problem when leather ball seams catch & interrupt the ball-flow as they're fed into the machine. (it is a non-issue with dimple balls.)
Added Steel? The added protective steel included with the MP-4 is a great idea however, I personally like the idea of purchasing the virtually identical MP-6 and adding our oversize 7' x 7' protective screen & simply cut a porthole into the net…this protects the front of the entire unit…the total cost becomes very similar!
Shipping Costs? Probably $30-70 more for the MP-4 depending on your ZIP Code due to the extra weight from the reinforced steel. btw: If possible, shipping to a business, especially one that has a dock or a forklift will save you some extra money!
*The Shaker? When you use game baseballs or softballs, the seams occasionally “catch”, causing the arm to throw without a ball. The shaker stops this issue. This is an inexpensive option on the Pro Model MP-6 (standard with the MP-4 model) and can be added either at the factory (or you can purchase & install later) if you want to try and live without it. Note: If you only use dimple balls, this is a non-issue.
*All Master Pitching Machines Throw Leather & Dimples & Can Be Purchased For Baseball Or Fastpitch Softball

MY ARM STYLE PITCHING MACHINE SUMMARYThe most important decision you can make is to invest in a pitching machine and a batting cage that fits your budget, your player(s) and your backyard, ballclub or ballfield. After that, if an arm style machine fits your needs, examine your budget. The hopper-style MP-4 & MP-6 arm style pitching machines offer the ability to hit a maximum of 600 baseballs or 400 softballs without reloading; a real convenience and increase of efficiency, especially for teams! The rack style MP 5 model offers more portability, cost savings and has the same internal workings as our MP-4 and MP-6.
