The Infield Rascal Pro is the ultimate infield surfaces groomer, offering the same high degree of effectiveness as the Infield Rascal MVP, for daily commercial use on both recreational and professional level infield surfaces. During seasonal renovation, it can decompact hard infield surfaces and warning tracks, eliminate lip build up along the turf edge, and remove weed growth and creeping grass’s at the root level.

The Infield Rascal Pro has proven so effective that it has earned the trust and exclusive endorsement of Grant McKnight and Dura Edge Products, who has pioneered the engineered soil technology that has now been installed into over three quarters of major league ballparks. Before we take a closer look at the patent pending attachments that groom and renovate the infield surface, let’s first take a quick tour of this patented tool.
At the core of the Pro is commercial grade construction and superior craftsmanship, all protected with a 36 month warranty. The patented wheel lift system provides precision control over the infield rascal and is operated either with a manual jack or the available electric actuator. This system raises and lowers the pro chassis for easy transport around the facility, but most importantly, it holds underbelly attachments at a consistent round penetration depth during operation.
The available electric actuator enables on the fly control of the rascal from the seat of the tow vehicle. The actuator is a huge timesaver for multi field facilities. A small and convenient controller is provided for the actuator maybe additionally operated with the available wireless remote.
The Rascal rides on large 16 and a half inch tall by 8 inch wide tires to ensure consistent grooming results on the field and efficient transport off the field. With four available underbelly ground engaging attachments and four available final finishing attachments, the Infield Rascal Pro can be configured to take on nearly any field condition.
For daily grooming, the patent pending VibraFlex attachment is a complete re-imagining of infield grooming. Evenly staggered, U pins transfer vibration and flex from front to back, dancing along the surface, shattering surface tension to properly groom any infield. The VibraFlex groomer is available in two models to suit facility needs. The eighth inch, quarter inch, or three eight inch pins are easy to replace or exchange and are mounted at an angle to create four staggered rows that best suits surface conditions.
For seasonal renovation work. The patent pending profile blade attachment yields unparalleled decompaction results, slicing the complete profile of the infield material from a half inch to three inches beneath the infield surface. This is accomplished without displacing the material, reducing the need to laser grade after the work is complete, occasionally, decompact into infield surface, encourages a quick draining, and consistent playing ball.
Profile blades also have the ability to cut weeds and grass at the root level to remove creeping grasses from infields and warning tracks, as well as remove lip build up along the turf edge.
The Rigid Drag Mat with its leveling bar is the all purpose attachment that will float material to fill low areas and drag the surface ready for play. If the surface is already clog-free and level, then the fine finish broom creates the best finish for both high and low moisture conditions.
The Coco Mat is an ideal solution to get wet fields ready for game time. The extreme duty flexible mat is designed to quickly break down small clay clods and reset a surface after light renovation work. All four of the rear quick swap finishing attachments may be manually latched out of play for transport.
