When training, conditioning, or showing in English riding disciplines, it’s no secret that secure footing is vital. Creating an optimal arena surface experience for your horses doesn’t end when you install a synthetic arena. Arena surface grooming is what keeps that footing high quality, so you can elevate horse/rider harmony, protect horse’s health, and ensure you’re getting the best performance every time. If you’re looking for the highest quality arena grooming with a reliable, durable attachment, it’s time for you to meet the ABI SportPro Premier Equestrian Edition M5. The SportPro M5 was designed with facility owners, managers, and trainers, and the horses they care for at the forefront. We have a configuration to get the results you require, no matter what kind of synthetic additives you’re working with. What makes the SportPro M5 better than other three-point hitch groomers on the market, is its unique structure and its ability to be configured to perfectly suit the requirements for your specific arena moisture and additives.
M5 Synthetic Ground Engaging Components
Available in two configuration widths, the SportPro M5 is built with extended space between each component from front to back. This innovative setup maximizes the flow of footing material, so you can be sure you’re getting the comprehensive blending needed for daily maintenance, as well as periodic remixing. The SportPro M5 groomer comes fitted with a patent pending swivel hitch that precisely follows the turns of the tractor around jumps and rails, and straightens itself before locking when lifted. This self-locking swivel hitch enhances safety and reduces hassle when pulling in and out of the arenas. Each ground-engaging component on a SportPro M5 is independently adjustable, with easy adjustment capabilities, so you can change the surface tension in your arena as desired. Once you have the groomer configured for everyday use for your arena, lock the tool in place, so you can count on consistent, repeatable results no matter who’s in the driver’s seat. Then, adjust the components as needed into an active grooming position. When you need to remix the additives in your footing, or change the surface tension for conditioning your horses.
M5 Synthetic Drag Configurations
Choose a single or double roller configuration. The twisted rod design maximizes packing, prevents trailing, and minimizes bounce, so you can count on an elegant finish over your arena surface. On the dual roller models, the front and back rollers add an additional level of gauge security and consistency, so you can drop and groom without worrying about catching on your base or mats. Choose between our S-Tines or Scarifier models. If you have a limited amount of water in your arena, or your additives require frequent mixing, the S-Tine configuration will provide holistic blending for your everyday grooming. S-Tines offer a safer way to go deeper, pulling up small fines and fibers that have settled to the bottom without damaging the base. S-Tines are also suited for self-amending or self-installing additional materials or fibers. Compacted arenas with high clay will benefit from the Scarifier configuration as the primary component. In contrast to the S-Tines, Scarifiers are rigid by design, giving them an enhanced ability to loosen hard, compacted materials. For arenas that would benefit from the capabilities of both, the SportPro Groomer allows the operator a tool swap out of the available S-Tines and Scarifiers. The SportPro M5 has two offset rows of coil tines, and each tine has two contact points instead of one. In their passive position, this setup maximizes the coil tine’s ability to fill in grooves and press down large fibers that have risen to the top. In the active position, the coil tines aerate, mix, and level the arena surface. Behind the coil tines is the SportPro M5 smoothing bar. The cylinder shape of the smoothing bar allows material to flow under, as well as over, creating a smoothing effect under the bar and preventing excess material from plugging up. Adjustable in quarter-inch increments for precision adjustment, the smoothing bar also accumulates some excess materials to drop into low areas to level the arena.
To get those tough to reach edges, add the optional rail blade. A rail wheel is also available for extra kick wall protection. When leveling the edges of your arena. Both riders and their horses deserve footing they can rely on. Which means you need a synthetic drag that’s built to last. The tough steel frame is built without a shell for increased visibility, and to make it easier to reach the individual components for any needed adjustments or upkeep. Rather than relying on delicate linkages to take the brunt of that stress, our purposeful design makes the SportPro stronger, more durable, and more efficient than other groomers.
