I purchased the 4X18 just over a year ago for ~ $160.00. I then built a platform for it using plywood and 2X3's for the base and 1X4's for the sides (so the balls wouldn't fall off)
Total investment was about $200.00.
It has two speeds 10 one way and 11 the other with three cups (2 on one side and 1 on the other).
I drilled holes in the frame and installed 4"white PVC to have a nice depth that hold ~ 8 balls comfortably.
Being in New England (even though last year was pretty mild) I used it from November to April. For the money, I think it's a great product. It rolls very true and has held up well. NOW, if you have young children or animals, beware as this is still (ultimately) a piece of foam. It can tear or be punctured pretty easily. I have never had an issue, but my youngest is 12 and uses often but is careful.
A push broom does work great (pulling it, NOT pushing it) to reset the speeds, remove any matted down areas where you stand, etc.
I just pulled it out and set it up for the off-season (season # 2)
There may be prettier or even more authentic products out there, but the ones I browsed on the web were out of my price range (400-500+).
