Force Z-23

Powerful Agility, Precise Versatility

Watch Now.


Groundwork, Reimagined

Force's Z-23 is engineered to empower ballfields groundskeepers, turf managers, and landscape contractors to get work done with maximized efficiency. Our patented design enables a smaller footprint, zero-turn platform to do the work of much larger and heavier equipment. So you get more with less, with a machine that’s easier to transport and to operate, making it perfect for a one man job or to speed up your bigger jobs. You can easily swap out additional attachments on the job, with no tools required. The Force is a commercial-grade machine that can do it all with blazing fast zero-turn efficiency and hand-work level precision.



Industry Leading Technologies

The Z-23 is purpose built with high quality materials and equipped with innovative tech to empower any operator or crew to get the best out of the ground they are working with.

Located at the mid underbelly of the ABI Force, the patented RVF Technology hydraulically controls mid-mounted ground-engaging attachments with lift, variable down pressure, and pitch adjustments.

The zero-turn capability of the Z-23 means that you can get in tight spots, around edges, and closer to tree lines than with a skid steer or other heavier duty equipment. For infield grooming and seedbed prep, you want that light footprint and maximized nimbleness.

The Depth-lock feature prevents mid-mount attachments from going any deeper into the infield surface than intended. This feature makes it easy to ensure consistent preparation from field to field and operator to operator. The Speed-lock feature prevents less experienced users from operating the ABI Force faster than a facility manager establishes. This feature provides improved safety and ease of use for all operators.

The patented spring system allows for up to 1,000 lbs of down pressure, but builds in forgiveness, so the Z-23 can power through some of the toughest jobs. With unparalleled pitch-control and hydraulic rear lift control, the ground engagement components mimic the movement of the machine so you can get finishing, feathering, and sifting results.

Every ABI Force Z-23 comes standard with a Heavy Duty 2-Stage Cyclonic Canister Air Filtration System. A 2-stage filtration system makes sure that your engine pulls clean air, acting as your engine’s shield in dusty conditions. Keep the filter clean to see improved engine performance, fuel efficiency, and extended engine life.

  • In my 40 plus years of working on fields as a player, high school coach, collegiate coach and now maintaining the fields at the Softball Hall of Fame I have never had one piece of equipment that has made as much of an impact of maintaining fields as the ABI Force. The Force is such a versatile and agile piece of equipment that performs a multitude of jobs for us that we never were able to do or it performs these jobs so much better and efficiently for us than in the past. The greatest impact the Force makes on our facility is our ability to laser weekly after each tournament event. We are now able to maintain our surfaces on a weekly basis by managing and replacing our material, preventing low spots in our infield due to heavy play. This provides us with a safer surface that is manageable both in dry and wet conditions. I give the Force my highest recommendation for an infield grooming machine.

  • The ABI Force from ABI Attachments has been a complete game changer, at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium, here in Oklahoma City, OK. Being able to laser grade our infields whenever we want and how we want has been an absolute blessing! We are now better able to not only control where our water travels from our infields, but we are also better able to control our moisture throughout the days, weeks and months of a softball season. The ability to pitch our fields in different directions almost on command has changed the way we take care of our softball fields.This machine has also saved us time and labor! Being able to operate multiple attachments at the same time makes the work much more efficient and less strenuous on our personnel. We essentially have gained more man power without having to hire more workers. This machine is a BEAST!

  • With the ABI force I gotta say it’s a one in a kind of machine with it is anyways, but with what it can do it’s priceless for a grounds crew . I have 10 fields I mostly use the ABI force for and with the ABI and myself I can get all 6 fields spiked leveled and groomed all in 4 hours. The district I work for didn’t have a groomer they used a bobcat to do it’s work in the past this is something I pushed for and sold my boss on getting and we did. This has replaced 4 guys. The ABI is a huge time saver for me now I have those four guys mowing other areas in the district and helping.

  • We have been using our ABI Force Z23 for just over a year now, and it has become an indispensable piece of equipment. From the obvious use on our districts Baseball and Softball field, to maintaining our clay running tracks at the middle schools. We also use it with our grounds team to spot aerate, overseed, and fertilize smaller turf areas with challenges rather than blanket treat all turf areas. This has been saving the district hundreds of dollars twice a year. My athletic groundskeepers at the high school also asked to use it to widen the base paths on our varsity and JV fields to allow a more normal path of travel for the 6 foot wide attachments. Our coach and Athletic Director were thrilled with the results. This never would have happened if it required a sod cutter, tractor bucket, and days of raking to prep the ground. I highly recommend this over any other piece of grooming option!
