Every ball triggers the release mechanism at the bottom that releases the next ball from the top. This cycle repeats until all the balls reach the bottom where can be easily extracted by pressing the leaver. Balls are then reloaded manually. When fully loaded it operates autonomously for 4 minutes and 14 seconds.
