ABI SpeedMaster Features
The ABI Speedmaster is designed to be the ultimate speed events drag. We designed it to fully utilize the power larger tractors offer with its hefty 3-point connection, independent hydraulic components, and PTO water system. This allows the Speedmaster to masterfully groom arena footing at high speed. Other drags only operate optimally at a certain (slower) speed. Furthermore, the Speedmaster’s low-profile design increases its maneuverability, hewing close to the rear of the tractor. This minimizes “swing”, covers hoof prints and tire tracks, and expertly resets footing for the next competitors. Weave quickly through obstacles, along panels, and around barrels with ease!
Independent Ground Engaging Components
For ultimate control, all of the ground engaging components are independently adjustable, enabling you to get the perfect footing, base and finish for any discipline.
PTO Water System
The ABI SpeedMaster features a watering system that maintains footing moisture levels and knocks down dust created by the drag during operation. This 110 gallon system uses a powerful PTO pump and brass flood nozzles, which are adjustable, making it easy to apply water for specific applications, such as the barrel pattern. Event facilities that drag frequently during events will appreciate this system’s ability to apply more water more quickly than competitors. The SpeedMaster’s PTO water system allows you to continually add water between runs, maintaining footing shear strength and stability, and controlling dust throughout the facility for horses, competitors and spectators alike. For additional water application needs, ABI offers a variety of water trailers perfect for any arena!
The ABI SpeedMaster features several independently controlled ground engaging components allowing for 5 points of control over the arena footing material. The double row of offset hydraulic rippers provides variable loosening action ideal for speed events. To enhance material flow and reduce large dirt clods, ABI’s exclusive double row of offset ripping teeth have more shanks per foot for increased consistency. With hydraulic control from the seat of the tractor, the operator is empowered to precisely control footing conditions with ease. Each shank has replaceable bolt on tips, for easy and affordable maintenance.
The ABI SpeedMaster brings significant advancement in performance drag design with the game changing hydraulic leveling blade! This innovative feature is exclusive to ABI! The SpeedMaster’s leveling blade moves independently from the frame so the operator can level an arena without lifting the 3 point connection and disengaging the drag’s other components. This precision hydraulic control is crucial for properly preparing footing for speed events!
The ABI SpeedMaster features custom made rods designed specifically for grooming horse arenas. These two offset rows of replaceable grooming rods condition every inch of the footing to ensure ridge free consistency. The one inch diameter rods may be adjusted to properly condition the footing material after it has been loosened by scarifiers and leveled by the blade.The rods are strategically spaced and set at the ideal angle to allow for exceptional material flow and grooming results.
