Sportmaster - The Elite Event Facility Drag

The ABI Sportmaster Premier Equestrian Edition is the ultimate arena groomer for English equestrian disciplines using footing with synthetic additives. Made exclusively with elite competitors and facility managers in mind, this arena drag offers tighter turns, on-the-fly component adjustments, and greater high-speed stability than any other large groomer on the market. With the Sportmaster’s agile turning hitch and base-protective ground engaging components, operators can hydraulically adjust, reset, and finish their footing to get the perfect consistency without ever leaving the seat of the tow vehicle. The proprietary auto-locking  hitch automatically centers and locks once lifted, so you can get in and out of your arenas hassle free. The ABI Sportmaster is uniquely designed and outfitted to give you the ideal results needed to suit your specific arena—no matter what synthetic additives you’re working with. Best suited for 60 hp CAT I, 120 hp CAT II, or large 4-wheel drive facility tractors. 99” Width. 12 Month Commercial Warranty.
Sportmaster

Heavy Duty Cycle

Built to withstand the daily rigorous schedule of elite equestrian competitions and training facilities, the Sportmaster is engineered to be a heavy-duty, durable arena drag perfectly suited to care for your synthetic footing. Ensure your desired consistency and an elegant finish to your arena surfaces, every time.

On-the-Fly Adjustment

Get more exact precision and infinite control over the ground condition without having to leave the seat of the tractor. Built with on-the-fly hydraulic scarifiers, the Sportmaster allows you to adjust the feel and performance of the arena surface, ensuring greater fairness and consistency in between competition events. Make quick, easy adjustments for wear with the Sportmaster hydraulic flip-stop while always protecting your arena base and mats.

Easy Transport

The Sportmaster’s auto-locking turning hitch makes it easy to get in, out, and around your facility. The durable, welded steel swivel hitch gives you the strength and mobility to make tight turns without displacing the footing material. Providing greater stability at high speeds, this swivel hitch enables operators to seamlessly move around obstacles or arenas with ease. Even transport between arenas is simple with the Sportmaster—just activate the hydraulic lift and the auto-locking turning hitch feature will center it to protect your surface finish for the next event. To move between facilities, the Sportmaster comes with built-in forklift pockets to help lift and load the drag onto a truck for stress-free transportation.

sportmaster-KO-01-auto-hitch

Auto Locking Turning Hitch

Let Your Groomer Do The Heavy Lifting

Our auto-locking turning hitch allows the Sportmaster to precisely follow each turn of the tractor up to 25+ degrees of swing around jumps, rails, or tight corners. The self-locking hitch enhances safety and reduces hassle when transitioning between arenas by automatically locking in place when lifted. When engaged, the swivel hitch functions like a ball connection hitch which lets the drag and tractor move independently, preventing the implement from washboarding the footing surface as you drive out of the area.

sportmaster-KO-02-scarifier-bar

Scarifiers

Reduce Compaction with More Precision

The base-protective scarifiers on the ABI Sportmaster give you precision, control, and maximum power to remove unwanted compaction from the riding surface of your arena. Available in a hydraulically adjustable configuration, these scarifiers enable quick and easy on-the-fly adjustment of the scarifiers throughout competition events. Positive depth control allows facility managers to pre-set conditioning and loosening levels, ensuring better consistency and precision in critical arena surfaces no matter who is driving.

sportmaster-KO-03-coil-tine-bar

Coil Tines

Thorough Blending with Adjustable Contact Points

Two adjustable, offset rows of coil tines give you twice the number of contact points to the surface. The incremental angle adjustment on these tines offers operators the ability to fill in grooves and incorporate material fibers that have risen to the surface back into the footing. With the incremental adjustable depth control, you can pre-set the depth operators can go, protecting the base mats, and securing the surface quality in the process. In addition to daily maintenance, the coil tines can aerate, mix, and help to level the arena surface when set in a more active position.

sportmaster-KO-04-rear-finish-roller

Bar Style Finishing Roller

Enhance Footing Surface Stability

The twisted-rod design of the Sportmaster bar roller maximizes packing and prevents trailing, creating a firm and visually elegant finish you can count on for your arena surface. One key benefit of having a bar finishing roller is the continuous contact with the ground, which enables better compaction of footing materials and enhances surface stability.

sportmaster-KO-05-flip-stop

Flip-Stop Technology

Control Conditioning Depth with Confidence

Transitioning in and out of arenas with varying depths and footing materials is easier than ever with our revolutionary “Flip-Stop” technology. When active, the hydraulic flip-stop provides quick, easy adjustment for wear, offering 8 inches of feed adjustment without you having to adjust each individual scarifier. For elite facilities that need various different footing conditions, this feature ensures better depth accuracy and base protection when grooming. Operators will enjoy being able to save adjustment time and money on replacement parts as well as precisely adjust conditioning depth between arenas.

sportmaster-KO-06-press-plate

Hydraulically Controlled Press Plate

Contour Your Footing Surface

Add the optional hydraulically controlled press plate to help firm and seal your riding surface. The press plate applies an even amount of pressure to help you smooth down and lock in your ideal footing consistency during grooming. By adjusting the press plate to the desired depth and firmness, you can create the exact footing finish to match various riding disciplines.

sportmaster-KO-07-farmflex

FarmFlex Style Finishing Roller

For An Elegant, Consistent Finish, Every Time

Depending on your specific needs or grooming philosophy, your Sportmaster can be fitted with an optional FarmFlex style finishing roller. One key benefit of using the FarmFlex roller is that the roller presses down on the footing material, sealing in the moisture to create an elegant, consistent finish for your arena.

sportmaster-KO-08-front-roller

Additional Front Roller

Less Bounce For Better Grooming

The Sportmaster also offers the option of an additional front roller. By including a second roller, operators gain better stability and further reduce bouncing while grooming across the arena.
