This independence is vital to prepare an arena for peak performance, and it’s only found on the ABI SpeedMaster. The pro choice for speed events from ABI Equine.
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. The event facilities that drag frequently during events will appreciate the system’s ability to apply more water more quickly than the competitors. The SpeedMasters PTO water system allows you to continually add water between runs, maintaining footing sure strengthens stability and controlling dust throughout the facility for the 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 five 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 as 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 could level an arena without lifting the three 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 placed and set at the ideal angle to allow for exceptional material flow and grooming results.
The rolling basket on the ABI SpeedMaster does much more than simply leave behind a rolled surface. This uniquely designed basket functions to control the drags operating depth and helps to prevent the drag from following tractor undulations. It pulverizes, footing clods with ease as it packs the loosened material, creating a stable footing ideal for speed events. The innovative rolling basket leaves behind a small top coat of loosened footing material to provide proper cushion and grip in the footing profile.
The Finish rake is the final ground contact point and creates the ABI SpeedMaster’s signature finish. The rake is adjustable and could be locked down or allowed to float. This customization enables the SpeedMaster to create the perfect finish in nearly any footing material composition or moisture conditions.
The rake is constructed of half an inch thick laser cut steel that is replaceable in one foot sections and is split in the middle for easier handling and consistent ground contact. In one pass, the ABI SpeedMaster will loosen, level, groom, pulverize, pack, and rake the footing in a horse arena to a beautiful finish. The SpeedMasters simply creates the best finish in the industry for speed events. Nothing else compares.
