Commerical-quality construction & design excels when other tools fail.
A TRUE UTILITY TOOL FOR PROPERTY OWNERS, the Gravel Rascal combines loosening teeth, a landscaping rake, soil pulverizer and rear grading blade into one patented ATV & UTV drag. Like it’s bigger 3-point-tractor brother, the TR3®, the Gravel Rascal is a complete one-tool-does-it-all solution for maintaining property. With the Rascal’s patented wheel-lift system, the operator is in complete control. The manual jack (or optional electric actuator) adjusts the wheel height, sets the maximum depth of penetration, allows the user easy access to swap between Profile Blades and scarifiers, and makes transportation a breeze! During use the loosening teeth breakup hardpan material and the rear adjustable rake goes to work pulverizing clods and raking material to a level finish. For larger “Cut & Fill” grading and renovation work, the back manual jack pivots the rake up to 90°—into a perfect grading position! For further versatility, add the optional electric actuator and the Gravel Rascal’s pivoting finish rake can easily spread fresh gravel, fill in washouts, collect rocks and pull debris into piles! The Gravel Rascal excels at driveway and parking lot maintenance and is capable of breaking up hardpan, removing potholes from driveways, and even repairing large-scale washouts! With the Gravel Rascal’s aggressive adjustable loosening teeth, heavy unit weight and the optional weight rack, this tool can bite through nearly any tough job! NO OTHER ATV TOOL MAKES QUICKER WORK OF DRIVEWAYS, POTHOLES, WASHOUTS, & MORE!
The Gravel Rascal is the ultimate property maintenance tool, for the ATV and UTV, offering commercial quality and design that excels when other tools fail! Designed by multi-patent awarded equipment innovator, Kevin Keigley, the Gravel Rascal offers TR3-caliber (3-point tractor version) results for the ATV & UTV owner. The Gravel Rascal's design was awarded 2 patents and has 1 patent-pending with the United States Patent Office. US Patent #s: 7,478,682 - 7,540,331. At ABI we believe in innovation not imitation!
The adjustable rippers give the Gravel Rascal the teeth it needs to break up most any hardpan surface. The ripping teeth are adjustable from 0" - 7" to get to the bottom of the most demanding jobs, even potholes! They enable the Gravel Rascal to be used to maintain gravel driveways, parking lots, prep seedbeds, maintain trails, maintain food plots & so much more! The rigid design, and angle of penetration into the ground, delivers exceptional aggressiveness not match by any other ATV tool available. The tips are replaceable for reduced maintenance cost.
ABI’s patent-pending Profile Blades are an innovative subsurface cutting component that temporarily replaces the ripping teeth and is used for 3 specialized purposes. First, it is used for conditioning the dirt (footing) of a horse riding arena. Second, it is used on baseball and softball infield surfaces. Third, it is used on driveways, after they have been significantly loosened, to remove remaining ridging and cut vegetation at the root level. The Profile Blades are only used for finesse dirt work.

Pivoting Rake - Pulverize, Grade, Rake, & Finish:
By adjusting the rear manual jack, the Gravel Rascal's, ½" think hardened steel, rake can pivot up to 90° into a variety of finishing and grading positions. This adjustability enables the rake to pulverize clods of material, level and finish (with adjustability for varying material flow properties), spread loose material from a small pile, grade (by cutting already loosened material and dragging into low areas), and collect loosened surface rocks & other debris. The rake can additionally be adjusted completely out-of-play if unneeded for a particular job. This functionality enables the Gravel Rascal to beautifully finish gravel driveways and parking lots, collect and refill accessible washed-out gravel material, leave a perfect uncompressed seedbed, and even break-up aeration cores and manure in a pasture. While grading is possible without additional options, we HIGHLY recommend the optional electric actuator to control the wheel-lift system from the seat of the tow vehicle. This option greatly enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the Gravel Rascal for "cut-&-fill" grading and spreading applications. The rake is replaceable in one foot sections to reduce maintenance costs.
Patented Wheel-Lift System:
With the Gravel Rascal’s patented wheel-lift system, the operator is in complete control! Without the wheel-lift system, pull behind implements are uncontrollable. The wheel-lift system is operated with a standard manual jack on top of the Gravel Rascal. Turning this jack raises and lowers the wheels, which in turn, raises and lowers the frame and ground contact points of the Gravel Rascal. This system may also be operated from the seat of the tow vehicle with the optional electric actuator (as shown). The wheel-lift system serve 3 purposes. First, it enables the tool to be lifted off the ground for easy transport all around the property. Second, it allows the operator to gauge or control the max depth of penetration into the surface. When the surface is extremely hard, the wheels may be raised "out-of-play" to allow the full weight of the tool to be placed on the ground contact components for more aggressive penetration. Third, when the wheels are all the way down, and the frame is lifted into the air, this allows for easy swapping out of underbelly components such as the ripper teeth and profile blades.
Large Stabilizing & Transport Wheels:
The large 16.5” tall x 8” wide tires are a critical part of the patented "Wheel Lift System" and serve four important functions. First, they allow for quick and easy transport, over most any terrain, even at moderate speeds to get around the property quickly. Second, they stabilize the Gravel Rascal from pitching side-to-side ensuring consistency of grooming depth, the width of the unit, especially when maneuvering tight turns. Third, they enable the Gravel Rascal to "float" on loosened or wet material to minimize "sinking" into these soft material situations, which otherwise would alter grooming depth. This is a common problem for most competitive groomers. Forth, they gauge or control how deep the ground contact components go into the ground and hold a consistent grooming depth. When it come to tires, size matters. The taller and wider the tire is, the more stable a pull behind implement will be. These are high quality wheels with replaceable hubs, spindles, and bearings for long service life. These are not cheap caster wheels like are found on many competitive ATV tools.
At the core of the Gravel Rascal is a welded main frame built upon 3" x 3" tube steel. The frame is fully welded, except at pivoting joints, for rugged and long lasting service life. Every component of the Gravel Rascal is truly commercial grade built to take the abuse of hours of daily use. Commercial-quality construction and design excels when other tools fail. The Gravel Rascal is the toughest and most versatile ATV tool on the market.
Ground Contact Pitch Adjustment:
The turn-knuckle on the top of the Gravel 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 control the pitch of the ripping teeth and profile blade for a verity of applications and soil types. This feature is also a very handy, no tools required, way to adjust pitch for varying hitch heights of tow vehicles.
Easy Drop Pin Hitch:
The drop pin hitch allows the user to easily connect and disconnect the Gravel Rascal. ABI understands, if an implement is a hassle to connect, it won't be used as often. So ABI has designed the Gravel Rascal to be easy for everyone to operate. The operator may also optionally add a 2" ball hitch if desired.
This industrial grade actuator lifts the Gravel Rascal for transport and enables the operator to control the Rascal from the seat of the tow vehicle. It is most commonly used to lift the tool for transport, raising the tool for tight turns over areas you do not want to disturb, for cut-&-fill grading, and setting the depth of the ripping teeth or profile blades. While grading is possible without additional options, we HIGHLY recommend the optional electric actuator to control the wheel-lift system from the seat of the tow vehicle. This option greatly enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the Gravel Rascal for "cut-&-fill" grading and spreading applications. Includes all hardware needed to attach to a 12v battery. A manual crank jack is standard.
Weight Rack / Attachments Carrier:
This option serves a dual purpose depending on the application for use. First, although most customers will not need it, this option enables 40 - 80 lbs. of additional weight to be added to the Gravel Rascal. Additional weight can help to loosen extremely hard surfaces. The actual weights are sold separately at local tractor supply stores. This bracket is designed to hold up to two 40lb. tractor weights. Second, this options is a Finishing Attachments Carrier that holds the optional drag mat or broom off the ground for easy transport.
Quick-Attachment Connectors may be bolted to the back of the Gravel Rascal to enable quick and easy connection of optional finishing components such as a drag mat or finishing broom. This simple quick attachment system is a "tool-free" way to swap out finishing components depending on surface conditions.
Fine Finishing Attachments:
For specialty applications ABI offers additional fine finishing attachments. These include a Rigid Drag Mat with leveling bar, Coco Drag Mat, Extreme Duty Flexible Drag Mat & a Fine Finish Broom. When ordering these attachments the optional "Attachments Carrier" and "Quick-Attachment Connectors" are REQUIRED. Without these additional options there is no way to connect and transport these attachments.
The edge blade is used to pull material off the edge of a driveway or horse arena back into the tool so it may be redistributed. The Edge blade are available in left side and right side versions. ATV owners can easily use either version, however side-by-side UTV owners will want the left side version for better visability.

"I was glad I made the decision of purchasing the Gravel Rascal because it has saved me many hours of smoothing out the rough ground on my landscaping project. I don't think I'll ever sell the Gravel Rascal when I am done. I know that I will use it again in the future. It is a valuable piece of equipment for anyone. Thank you for encouraging me to purchased it. It is so simple to use it. I really appreciated....and I have no regrets. I WILL RECOMMEND it to any of my freinds and family. I love it because it is MADE IN AMERICA and the quality that the manufacturer [ABI] has put into it is evident. It is so carefully designed with great precision of steel structure. Thank god is is not made in China. Many Thanks!!!!" Joaquin Perez
"The biggest thing for me when I was buying the Gravel Rascal was buying it over the phone, but now that I have it I couldn’t be happier with my tool. My salesmen Brad Ulick did a great job explaining how it worked and what it was built to do. The main reason I am so happy is because the tool does exactly what Brad said it would. I wasn’t finagled or tricked into anything and he made it very clear that it was my decision and wasn’t forcing anything on me. The Gravel Rascal is the best tool out on the market and I would trade it for any other drag." Don Lehmen
"I have a gravel hill and when it rains the gravels washed off and with the rascal I can pull it right back up instead of going out and buying new gravel. The Gravel rascal does exactly what you guys said it would and works amazing." Robert Carroll
"I bought the Rascal for my husband's "big" birthday present and, even though it is a piece of work equipment, he was thrilled! Now we don't have to pay other people to work the ground. We are saving money and that's always a good thing. It's probably already paid for itself. I am a very satisfied customer." Carolyn
