        Purpose Built From The Ground Up

        Designed By ABI Engineers To Advance The Game


        Speed & Precision

        The ABI Force is a ZERO TURN chassis that provides industry-leading efficiency and control, making maneuverability and ease of use second to none. The ABI Force features a Stand-on design to enhance precision control, visibility and operator comfort. The operator no longer has to look behind to “drop and drag” an attachment. The ABI Force positions the operator at a top-down perspective, looking down and forward to see and make adjustments as needed, ensuring enhanced visibility and monitored engagement of attachments.

        Responsive Variable Force Technology

        Responsive Variable Force Technology

        The heart and soul of the ABI Force, ZTV is it’s patented Responsive Variable Force Technology. This RVF technology enables a small footprint zero-turn platform to do the work of much larger and heavier equipment, with a fraction of the otherwise required tractive effort. Located at the mid underbelly of the ABI Force, the patented RVF Technology hydraulically controls mid-mounted ground-engaging attachments with lift, variable down pressure, and pitch adjustments.


        Speed Lock

        The Speed-lock feature prevents less experienced users from operating the ABI Force faster than a facility manager establishes. This feature provides improved safety and ease of use for all operators.



        The Depth-lock feature prevents mid-mount attachments from going any deeper into the infield surface that intended. This feature makes it easy to ensure consistent preparation from field to field and operator to operator.


        Fingertip Hydraulic Command

        Up & Down Control

        The ABI Force Spring and Rocker Arm design allows for unparalleled down pressure of your mid-mount attachments. The patented spring system up to 1,000 lbs of down pressure, but builds in forgiveness, so the Force can power through some of the toughest jobs.

        Pitch Control

        When utilizing the Mid-Mount Attachment, the pitch control allows you to properly control and engage the attachments into the ground. Swap between a pocketed attachment to the multi-function rake for combing or sifting use. Run your attachments separately or together, utilizing the pitch control.

        Hydraulic Rear Lift Control

        The Hydraulic Rear Lift Control features a swivel based design, allowing all rear attachments to mimic the movement of the machine, increasing tire and tight turn coverage. The design allows our attachments to pick up from the front, similar to the feathering done by hand, eliminating large piles upon leaving the infield surface. Change the pitch of your attachment, with a center mounted top link, adjustable for certain conditions or playing surfaces.


        Commercial Grade Construction; Professional Grade Results


        Kohler Command Pro EFI

        The ABI Force is now equipped with ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION. An EFI system utilizes advanced computer controls teamed with a high-pressure fuel delivery system to provide peak power and fuel efficiency. The ABI Force now starts like a car with no carburetor issues, has increased fuel efficiency, and starts easily in the cold! – 23 horsepower

        • EFI V-Twin OHV
        • 4-Cycle Air Cooled
        • 5 Gallon/18.9L Capacity Unleaded Gasoline
        • EPA Compliant

        Heavy-Duty 2-Stage Air Filter

        Every ABI Force Z-23s comes standard with a Heavy Duty 2-Stage Cyclonic Canister Air Filtration System. No longer located near the engine, the Canister Air Filter has been relocated for ease of access. A 2-stage filtration system makes sure that your engine pulls clean air, acting as your engine’s shield in dusty conditions. Keep the filter clean to see improved engine performance, fuel efficiency, and extended engine life.


        No More Broken Belts

        Typically, machinery of this size runs off Hydraulic Drive System geared to a belt and pulley drive shaft. The lifetime of a belt can be unpredictable as belts break, and unfortunately, your machine is temporarily stuck. Not anymore! Each ABI Force is plumbed standard with Dual Stacked HydroGear Variable Displacement Pumps and Fixed Displacement Wheel Motors. The benefits are significant compared to typical belt-driven systems.


        Standard Air Tires

        The ABI Force comes standard with a commercial grade tire. The Standard Air Tire is a beefy traction and performance-based tire that gives the ABI Force a high stance while establishing crucial ground contact for maintaining traction.



        The Premium never-flat Tweel® offers additional benefits not found in the standard air tire. The full-width poly-resin spokes flex when in operation, providing increased tire-to-ground contact. This added ground contact enables significantly more traction, more torque power and excellent lateral stability during material grading. The unique design of the spokes also helps to soften the ride for enhanced operator comfort.

        Operator Experience

        Take a stand


        Precision Control In Hand

        We all know that handwork is precision work, and tradition has shown us that handwork yields the best results. So, what do we do when handwork level results are expected, and we face budgetary, workforce, time, and weather constraints? The answer is the ABI Force, which empowers the operator with precision control and incredible visibility, turning labor-intensive and time-consuming handwork, into precision mechanized efficiency.



        We stand up when we witness greatness, and we stand when we do our best work. So in designing the new ABI Force, we knew standing up would empower our users to get their best work done; like never before. Traditional seated drop-and- drag style bunker rakes have poor visibility, making precision work an uncomfortable and challenging task. It’s time to leave behind the old bunker rake and take a stand for great work!

Team schedules, revenue generation, and fair play are at risk when your infield maintenance equipment cannot handle the power of Mother Nature. The versatility and control of the ABI Force gives facility managers and operators the tools they need to combat the conditions that make playing the game impossible.


        The ABI Force generates significant returns versus other infield groomers. Operators using the Force can prepare infields significantly faster due to its zero-turn chassis and stand-up platform. In addition, with its multi-function design, the Force can handle gravel maintenance, aerating, fertilizing, seeding, edging and more. The Force’s durable, industrial grade construction ensures years of dependable performance.

        4Commercial Grade

        The ABI Force was designed to utilize some of the most reliable and durable commercial grade engine, hydraulic, electrical and cooling system technologies on the zero-turn market. Commercial Grade warranty is a standard on all internal systems, assuring your investment will show returns for many years of operation.


        The need to get the work done right and in the most efficient manner is critical to a well-managed facility. The versatility and control that the ABI Force offers facility managers and equipment operators will reduce the time needed for infield grooming, preparation, and renovation. With the ability to prepare and finish in one pass, zero turn maneuverability and multiple options for other maintenance needs, the ABI Force is in a class of its own.


        With the ABI Force’s mid-mount attachments directly below the hydraulic controls, it becomes an extension of the human body. Easy visibility for both attachment ground contact and forward direction makes the ABI Force the safest and most effective infield groomer on the market.

        7Operator Experience

        With traditional bunker-rake style infield groomers, physical fatigue comes standard. Always looking over your shoulder to see how the drop-and-drag attachments are affecting the infield quickly leads to operator fatigue and discomfort. With the ABI Force’s attachments directly below the eyes of the operator, and with the ergonomic design of the stand-on platform, operators will experience more comfort, safety and better results


        With the ABI Force’s mid-mount attachments directly below the hydraulic controls, it becomes an extension of the human body. Easy visibility for both attachment ground contact and forward direction makes the ABI Force the safest and most effective infield groomer on the market.

        9Facility Image

        They say a picture paints a thousand words. A perfectly maintained infield tells athletes, coaches and spectators that you care about the Game. When games are played on a pristine and beautiful infield, everyone wants to come back. The ABI Force guarantees that your fields are not only beautiful and fun to play on, but provide a safe and fair environment.


        The ABI Force is a revolutionary, zero-turn, self-propelled machine packed with purpose-built and powerful features and attachments designed to empower the user to get tough work, done.

        Quick-Swap Between Attachments To Get Work Done

        The attachments have been designed by leading industry professionals. As a result, ABI Sports Turf has reimagined attachment design to ensure that all three phases of proper infield maintenance can be achieved with just one machine. Now you can quick-swap between attachments that groom, prepare, and renovate to maintain the most pristine playing surfaces or reclaim long neglected, weed-covered fields.



        In my 40 plus years of working on fields as a player, high school coach, collegiate coach and now maintaining the fields at the Softball Hall of Fame I have never had one piece of equipment that has made as much of an impact of maintaining fields as the ABI Force. The Force is such a versatile and agile piece of equipment that performs a multitude of jobs for us that we never were able to do or it performs these jobs so much better and efficiently for us than in the past. The greatest impact the Force makes on our facility is our ability to laser weekly after each tournament event. We are now able to maintain our surfaces on a weekly basis by managing and replacing our material, preventing low spots in our infield due to heavy play. This provides us with a safer surface that is manageable both in dry and wet conditions. I give the Force my highest recommendation for an infield grooming machine.
        The ABI Force from ABI Attachments has been a complete game changer, at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium, here in Oklahoma City, OK. Being able to laser grade our infields whenever we want and how we want has been an absolute blessing! We are now better able to not only control where our water travels from our infields, but we are also better able to control our moisture throughout the days, weeks and months of a softball season. The ability to pitch our fields in different directions almost on command has changed the way we take care of our softball fields. This machine has also saved us time and labor! Being able to operate multiple attachments at the same time makes the work much more efficient and less strenuous on our personnel. We essentially have gained more man power without having to hire more workers. This machine is a BEAST!
        With the ABI force I gotta say it's a one in a kind of machine with it is anyways, but with what it can do it's priceless for a grounds crew . I have 10 fields I mostly use the ABI force for and with the ABI and myself I can get all 6 fields spiked leveled and groomed all in 4 hours. The district I work for didn't have a groomer they used a bobcat to do it's work in the past this is something I pushed for and sold my boss on getting and we did. This has replaced 4 guys. The ABI is a huge time saver for me now I have those four guys mowing other areas in the district and helping.
        We have been using our ABI Force Z23 for just over a year now, and it has become an indispensable piece of equipment. From the obvious use on our districts Baseball and Softball field, to maintaining our clay running tracks at the middle schools. We also use it with our grounds team to spot aerate, overseed, and fertilize smaller turf areas with challenges rather than blanket treat all turf areas. This has been saving the district hundreds of dollars twice a year. My athletic groundskeepers at the high school also asked to use it to widen the base paths on our varsity and JV fields to allow a more normal path of travel for the 6 foot wide attachments. Our coach and Athletic Director were thrilled with the results. This never would have happened if it required a sod cutter, tractor bucket, and days of raking to prep the ground. I highly recommend this over any other piece of grooming option!
