Budget-Minded & Results-Focused Infield Groomer
The Infield Rascal Rookie is an effective infield surfaces groomer, that produces quality results at a reasonable price for occasional use, recreational-level, ballfields. The Infield Rascal Rookie features a revolutionary patent-pending technology that is a re-imagining of infield surface maintenance. This is accomplished with ABI's VibraFlex attachment, which utilizes u-shaped pins to maintain a safe and fair playing surface. The patented Wheel-Lift System enables the operator to easily transport the tool and have control over grooming depth. Combine these features with the ability to quickly swap between available innovative finishing attachments, such as the Rigid Drag Mat, Coco Drag Mat, and Fine Finish Broom, and the Infield Rascal Rookie can maintain an infield surface that other leagues wish they could play on. *Profile Blades not available for Rookie model.
For daily grooming, the Patent-pending VibraFlex attachment is a complete re-imagining of infield grooming. Evenly staggered U-pins transfer vibration & flex from front to back, dancing along the surface, shattering surface-tension to properly groom any infield. The 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch pins are easy to replace or exchange and are mounted at an angle to create four staggered rows to best suit surface conditions.
Quick-Swap Finishing Attachments - Rigid Drag Mat:
The Infield Rascals Quick-Swap finishing attachments make it easier than ever to achieve just the right finish, no matter the infield surface condition and with no tools required. The standard finishing attachment is a custom designed 6' wide Rigid Drag Mat with integrated leveling bar. This rigid drag mat is the all-purpose attachment that will float material to fill low areas and drag the surface ready for play. Because of it's rigid design, this drag mat levels and smooths WITHOUT following small contours of the ground ensuring a level playing surface. The innovative integrated leveling bar floats materials from high areas into low areas, is a nearly indestructible tow bar, and allows the steel mesh to be replaced once worn. Other available finishing attachments include a fine finish broom and coco drag mat.
Patented Wheel Lift System:
The patented Wheel-Lift System provides control over the Infield Rascal Rookie and is operated with a manual jack. This system raises and lowers the Rascal chassis for easy transport around the facility, but most importantly, it holds underbelly attachments in position during operation. The 8" tall x 3" wide solid rubber tires are a critical part of the patented "Wheel-Lift System" and serve two important functions. First, they allow for easy transport. Second, they gauge or control how deeply into the ground the VibraFlex groomer is allowed to penetrate.
Bolted 2" x 2" Tube Steel Frame:
At the core of the Infield Rascal® Rookie is a bolted main frame built upon 2" x 2" tube steel. This is a rugged frame designed for daily use.
Finishing Attachments Carrier:
The Infield Rascal®'s Finishing Attachments Carrier holds the optional drag mats and broom off the ground for easy transport. These options include a Rigid Drag Mat, Coco Drag Mat, XD Drag Mat & Fine Finish Broom. This is especially handy in multi field complexes.
Ground Contact Adjustment:
The turn-knuckle on the top of the Infield Rascal® is designed to enable adjustment over the angle in which the ground engaging components come in contact with the ground. This adjustment allows the operator to flatten out the VibraFlex™ groomer for proper operation. This feature is also a very handy, no tools required, way to adjust for varying hitch heights when using multiple tow vehicles.

6' Coco Drag Mat w/Leveling Bar (6' x 2'):
The ABI Coco Drag Mat with Leveling Bar is 6' wide and 2' long and is ideal for adding a fine finish to an infield skin even in high moisture conditions. The innovative integrated leveling bar floats materials from high areas into low areas, is a nearly indestructible tow bar (for use behind a tow vehicle) and allows the coco matting to be replaced once worn.
7' Fine Finish Broom:
The Fine Finish Broom is 7' wide and offers 3 rows of bristles. The mounting arms are adjustable to set the exact working angle desired, yet the broom will float independently from the Infield Rascal® frame. The broom has an ideal weight for the perfect amount of down pressure needed for beautiful performance. If the surface is already clod-free and level, then the Fine Finish Broom creates the best finish in both high and low moisture conditions. The 3 ideally spaced rows of easily replaceable bristles, will help to float a small amount of material into low areas and finish the infield in a pristine "major-league" manner.
