    It just says tennis tutor on the side. Model number is 4P. Is has features such as top/under spin and oscillation. It also has a remote control.

    that's got to be worth at least 600? on an auction site. The 4p was probably their top model at the time. The only difference now on the machines is probably the control panel interface. I think the insides are pretty much the same.

    Thanks!! One of the motors is gone so I will have to replace that. Called tennis tutor and they said you have to replace both motors which will cost $160. Also told me I could send it to them and they will refurbish it as new, so may go that route!!

    Thinking of offering the guy $300 for the machine as is, that sound reasonable?

    I would start offering to buy at lower than that myself for a non-functioning machine. Like half that. Just my $.02.

    I need an idea what it will cost for the refurbish plus the $160 for the 2 motors I know will be replaced.

    yeah if it's not working who knows what else is not working. Can you power it up and make it turn side to side, can you hear the one motor move it up/down on elevation? Don't forget, you need to get it refurbed and cover the shipping to/for right?

    It was working for about 1 day and that's when the top motor went out. It was making adjustments to elevation, under/over spin fine prior to the motor crash. It has new heavy duty batteries that was recently replaced.

    I think it would be worth it even at asking price. When Sportstutor refurbs it it will be like new at a great price.

    Did Tennis tutor tell you how much do they charge for them to refurbish it as new?
