I recently bought a ball machine and I would find myself only hitting a couple cycles with it because I got sick of spending a huge chunk of time picking the balls up with a hopper. I bought this on a whim mainly because it was portable and I could leave it in my trunk at all times along with my ball machine. Not gonna lie, it was one of my best purchases. It break down and is compact (for what it is), it never jams and picks up ball better than a traditional mower you would use at a club. I also can set my ball machine on top of it and roll everything to the court at once which is a bonus. The way it picks up ball is unique as it traps balls between its frame and wheel and rolls the balls up a shoot as you are rolling over them. The only down fall is that does not hold nearly as much as a traditional mower. It holds probably 100 balls or so. I've limited my ball machine to that quantity as I do not want to purchase an extra basket to carry around nor do I want to carry out extra balls as I just leave the balls in the basket in the machine. All in all, it was an excellent buy...a little expensive for what it is (lets face it, all mowers are overpriced), but well worth the time I save hitting more and not picking up balls.
