Hurricane Replacement Parts

How to Purchase Hurricane Replacement Parts:

There are really only 2 parts on your Hurricane Trainer that you will have to eventually replace. They are the Hurricane impact head ball component and the Hurricane powerbands.

These Hurricane parts can be purchased at and are in stock and normally ship within 1 business day.

The impact head is the rod that has the ball attached to the end and extends out into the hitting zone. This part is warrantied by Sklz for 90 days, but should last anywhere from 1 to 3 yrs, depending on amount of use and the age of the users. It takes just seconds to replace the old one with the new one when purchased.

The Hurricane powerbands are the 3 bungee cords that are included with the package. These cords are what stop and return the machine when the hitter contacts the ball. The powerbands should last 3 to 6 months, but some last even longer. Again, it depends on the amount of use.
These powerbands will also last longer if they are kept out of the rain and sun when not in use.
Another tip to make the powerbands last is to make sure the hitter lets the machine properly "unwind" before contacting the ball again. In other words, make sure the powerbands uncoil from around the column housing before hitting the next pitch. Do not just keep hitting and winding the cords. They will stretch and eventually break.

Have a nice day, Nick.
