Revolutionary Design & Industry Exclusive Features include Motor Grader Style Ground Plane: The pull behind design offers a long distance between the tractor wheels and the ABI DragMaster wheels. The leveling blade sits in between these wheels creating the perfect ground plane that is critical for level consistent footing. The Independently Controlled Hydraulic Leveling Blade is independent from the frame and other ground engaging components. This enables precision leveling without changing the conditioning depth.

The ABI DragMaster is shown fully equipped. This is the configuration most of our customers will need. However, some customers may not need all the included features so they may be removed from the ABI DragMaster. Some indoor arenas that have pure sand may not need the hydraulic scarifier system. Indoor arenas that have an overhead watering system may not need the PTO water system. Although these features may be removed to lower the purchase price ABI recommends the fully equipped configuration for the vast majority of our customers.

Pull-Behind Ground Plane Design

Pull-Behind Ground Plane Design

The innovation behind the ABI DragMaster begins with its pull-behind design. By creating a ground plane, this design offers distance between the wheels of the tractor and DragMaster. The Hydraulic-leveling blade sits between these wheels for precision grading creating perfectly level and consistent footing, which allows the ABI Dragmaster to outperform all 3-point arena drags.

Hydraulic Transport & Gauge Wheels

Hydraulic Transport & Gauge Wheels

Supporting the ABI Dragmaster and controlling its working depth are the hydraulic transport & gauge wheels. These wheels keep the arena footing consistent with every pass. Consistency is key to the performance and safety of the horse. The main hydraulic cylinder controls the gauge wheels, which allows you to lock in your settings for repeatable and precise results. Whether at home or an event, every operator can ensure a consistent riding experience for each horse and rider.

Massive PTO Watering System

Massive PTO Watering System

The available massive PTO watering system regulates the amount of water in your footing, which is critical to its strength, cushion, and rebound, not to mention dust control. The Dragmaster has the largest watering system available on any arena drag in the world ranging from 300gal to 500gal. The variable-output PTO-driven pump allows precision control from the tractor seat, making a perfect water application easy!

The Dragmaster’s independently-adjustable ground-engaging components can be precision-adjusted from the frame for ultimate control! After the hydraulic leveling and grading blade creates a level traveling surface, the adjustable grooming rods, scarifiers, profile blade, and drag bars systematically pulverize, re-grade and loosen the footing, reinforce the base, and create the ideally-cushioned footing profile!

Hydraulic Grading & Leveling Blade

Hydraulic Grading & Leveling Blade

Maintain Consistent Footing Depth

The first adjustable component is the hydraulic grading & leveling blade. Used to maintain consistent footing depth and equalize high and low areas across the arena. Level your arena automatically with the optional laser system!

Adjustable Grooming Rods

Adjustable Grooming Rods

Loosen Material & Incorporate Water

The 2 rows of adjustable grooming rods are the first components to loosen material, and are designed to incorporate the Dragmaster’s water into the footing.

Hydraulic Scarifier System

Hydraulic Scarifier System

Break Up The Hardest Compacted Material

The Dragmaster’s available hydraulic scarifier bar breaks up the hardest compacted material for when an arena sees heavy use or hasn’t been properly loosened for a time. The bar is independently adjustable from the rest of the components, enabling them to be engaged or disengaged easily. The replaceable tips are made from a hardened, wear-resistant steel.

Profile Blades

Profile Blades

Slice Through Material From The Bottom Up

The patented Profile Blades of the Dragmaster can loosen 100% of the arena footing with every pass! No longer does an operator have to make multiple passes to loosen all the footing. The Profile Blades slice through material from the bottom up, not the top down. This eliminates all ridges in the footing, allowing the footfall of the horse to be flat and perfect every time!

Finish Drag Bars

Finish Drag Bars

Leave A Signature Finish

The Drag bars of the Dragmaster are designed to leave a signature finish while filling in any remaining small holes. These bars can be adjusted to apply the perfect amount of pressure to the footing depending on the footing consistency and moisture level.

300-500 Gallon PTO Water System

300-500 Gallon PTO Water System

Regulate The Amount Of Water In Your Footing

The available PTO watering system regulates the amount of water in your footing, which is critical to its strength, cushion, and rebound, not to mention dust control! The Dragmaster has the largest watering system available on any arena drag in the world. The variable-output PTO-driven pump allows precision control from the tractor seat, making a perfect water application easy! 300 or 500 gallon size. For facilities with another arena moisture solution (water trailer, sprinklers, etc.), the Dragmaster can now be fitted without a water system from the factory!

Rail Blade

Rail Blade

Every arena experiences footing displacement, especially ones that have heavy use. The rail blade rides along the edge of your arena and guides footing back into the path of the hydraulic leveling blade for even distribution across the arena!

Spray Hose

Spray Hose

The Dragmaster’s spray hose helps provide the extra polish and “finish factor” to arenas. Use it to clean panels and fencing, wash down your tractor and drag, or apply water to hard-to-reach areas like corners and entry areas. Long enough to be safely operated from the tractor seat!

Laser System

Laser System

Take all of the guess work out of grading your arena! The optional laser system ensures perfectly-consistent footing depth from one end of the arena to the other. Optional laser packages are specially configured to provide everything needed to maintain a level grade & consistent footing depth.
