The Arena Rascal Pro is America's bestselling ATV & UTV arena drag! Its versatility enables it to professionally drag horse arenas, grade gravel driveways, prepare seedbeds, and even breaking up manure in the pasture! The Arena Rascal Pro is built with patented technologies allowing the user unprecedented control over it's grooming depth and aggressiveness. The patented Profile Blade attachment ensures that what the horse and rider see on the top surface, is also what the horse feels when his hooves penetrate into the footing material! This technology is a game-changer that helps reduce vet bills and increases training results by eliminate hidden dangers below the surface! This tool is built to last and is the most effective and versatile ATV style arena drag available.
80% of all soundness problems are a direct result of poor quality arena footing. Simply grooming the top surface of an arena does not address the dangers under the surface that other arena drags leave behind. Inconsistent compaction at the base of the arena and variances in depth of the footing are major contributors to injuries resulting in lameness. The Arena Rascal Pro is the only ATV/UTV arena drag designed to address these real footing issues and properly prepare your arena to be a safe environment for your horses!
Horses are reactionary and can negatively react to perceived dangers. When a horse is unsure of its footfall on the riding surface, the natural reaction is to tense up and not listen to the cues given from the riders seat, legs or hands. Quite often, when horses disobey the riders cues, the blame is put on the horse. When, in reality, it most often is due to arena footing that has not been properly prepared. The Arena Rascal Pro eliminates this problem by properly preparing the entire footing profile on every pass.
Your investment in your horse is not just about time and money…it’s also about your relationship! You don’t have the luxury of buying new horses every few years. When your horses are lame or unable to compete at the next level, your choices become limited to replacement or retirement. The wisest investment you can make in the longevity of your horses is in the arena footing where you ride and train. The Arena Rascal Pro gives you the advantage of increasing your horses’ longevity to provide you with many years of love and enjoyment!
Other drags just scratch & claw from the top down, doing nothing to achieve a smooth and distraction-free footing base, but our patented PROFILE BLADE TECHNOLOGY removes dangerous compaction from beneath the surface, leaving no portion of the footing untouched! At the same time, our tough STEEL FINISH RAKE de-clumps and smooths for a signature finish.
Profile Blade Attachment
ABI’s patented Profile Blade attachment is an innovative subsurface cutting blade that works similar in concept to a sod cutting blade. This attachment cuts parallel to the arena grade, while riding along just above the base, to remove dangerous compaction layers and aerify the footing. With the Profile Blade attachment, there are no longer hidden dangers under an otherwise smooth looking surface! The Profile Blade attachment ensures that what the horse and rider see on the top surface, is also what the horse feels when his hooves penetrate into the footing material! This new level of safety helps to reduce vet bills and ensures productive time in the ring, as the horse will be more attune to riders cues, instead of unseen dangers below the surface.
Ripping Teeth Attachment
The included adjustable rippers may be temporarily swapped in to give the Arena Rascal Pro the teeth for tough work. The ripping teeth are adjustable from 0 – 7″ to get to the bottom of the most demanding jobs, even potholes! They enable the Arena Rascal Pro 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 matched by any other ATV tool available. The tips are replaceable for reduced maintenance cost.
The rear rake pulverizes and breaks up clumps of material and leaves a beautiful signature finish behind in the arena. By adjusting the rear manual jack, the Arena Rascal Pro’s 1/2″ thick 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 no matter the material consistency. This functionality enables the Arena Rascal Pro to beautifully groom and even renovate horse arenas. Outside of the arena it can grade gravel driveways, repair washed-outs, leave a perfect uncompressed seedbed, and even break-up manure lying on the pasture. The rake is replaceable in one foot sections to reduce maintenance costs.
Patented Wheel-Lift System
With the Arena Rascal Pro’s patented wheel-lift system, the operator is in complete control! Without the wheel-lift system, pull behind implements are uncontrollable. The system is operated with a standard manual jack on top of the Arena Rascal Pro. Turning this jack raises and lowers the wheels, which in turn, raises and lowers the frame and ground contact points. This system may also be operated from the seat of the tow vehicle with the optional electric actuator (as shown). The wheel-lift system serves 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 Arena Rascal Pro from pitching side-to-side ensuring consistency of grooming depth, the width of the unit, especially when maneuvering tight turns. Third, they enable the Arena Rascal Pro 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.
Ground Contact Pitch Adjustment
The turn-knuckle on the top of the Arena Rascal Pro 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 profile blade or ripping teeth for a variety of applications and soil types. This feature is also a very handy, no tools required, way to adjust pitch for varying tow vehicle hitch heights.
In addition to arena footing maintenance, the ripping teeth of the Arena Rascal Pro make it the ultimate property maintenance tool. In fact, because the teeth are “fixed” and not spring loaded, they make it easy to break up the hardest soil or gravel roads.
At the core of the Arena Rascal Pro 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 Arena Rascal Pro is truly commercial-grade to take the abuse of hours of daily use. Commercial-quality construction and design excels when other tools fail! The Arena Rascal Pro is the toughest and most versatile ATV tool on the market.

This industrial grade actuator is powerful, rugged and finely tuned for easy operation of the Rascal from the seat of the tow vehicle. It is most commonly used to lift the tool for transport, raise the tool for tight turns over areas you do not want to disturb, to cut-&-fill grade material, and to set the depth of the ripping teeth or profile blades. While grading is possible without additional options, we HIGHLY recommend this 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 Rascal for “cut-&-fill” grading and spreading applications. It includes all hardware and wiring needed to attach to a 12v battery and has a very convenient handlebar mounted controller. This controller enables easy operation while keeping both hands on the handlebars of the quad, ATV or UTV. An optional wireless remote controller is also available. A manual crank jack is standard.
Wireless Remote For Actuator
The wireless remote upgrade works with any ABI actuator purchased after June 1st 2013. Now you can control the Rascal’s wheel-lift-system from almost anywhere. Our wireless system has 2 key chain, all weather sealed, remote controllers for use with multiple tow vehicles or multiple operators at the same job site. This complete wireless kit offers easy plug-&-play installation.
3-Point Conversion Kit
With the ever expanding popularity of the sub-compact and mid-compact tractor market, ABI is proud to offer a 3-point option that converts the standard Rascal for ATVs and UTVs into the ultimate 3-point tool for small tractors. As most experienced land owners know, 3-point tools are more efficient and effective than pull behind tools. Now Rascal owners, that also own the 3-point option, have the choice between the convenience of a pull behind tool or the efficiency of a 3 – point tool all in one piece of equipment. Perhaps the most innovative aspect of this option is that in under 1 minute the user may swap between a pull behind tool for ATVs or a 3-point tool for tractors with no tools required. This amazing versatility for one tool to work with both ATVs and tractors is ideal for land owners that prefer to use a different tow vehicle for varying jobs. The Rascal 3-Point option brings Profile Blade Technology, ripper teeth and a pivoting finishing and grading rake to the small tractor market at an affordable price. This option fits existing Rascal models that have a removable tow bar tongue. Compatible with both category 0 and 1 3-point hitch types for tractors under 35 horse power.
The rail blade attaches to the frame with a large pin. The shovel cuts into the built up material along arena walls and rails and pulls it away, saving the user time and effort.
The Mini-Box Blade gives the ABI Arena Rascal Pro extra earth-moving muscle and unmatched versatility. Paired with the optional electric actuator, the operator can quickly and effectively level/grade an arena or driveway, collect loosened debris & rocks, and fill-in low areas in pastures! The serrated box edge is ideal for gravel and soil materials. The mini-box even enables the establishment of a crown on a gravel driveway when used on the current design Rascal with an adjustable wheel block.
