Infield Grader for your Mower

The ABI Infield Grader is a performance-oriented, yet cost effective, infield maintenance groomer designed for use behind a riding mower or zero-turn with a rear hitch. With a Force Infield Grader, every baseball and softball league can now afford safer and more playable infields.



Industry Leading Technologies

In grading, the heavier the implement, the better the grading result. However, when the tow vehicle is a traction limited mower, too much weight will cause the operator to get stuck with spinning tires. So, instead of adding static dead weight via cinder blocks, a water tank, or other common methods, “Controlled Force” technology adds active “On-The-Go Weight Control,” which enables the operator to transfer weight from the tow vehicle to the Infield Grader as more or less weight is needed for the job!

The ABI Infield Grader comes standard with an electric actuator. The ABI actuator is commercial grade, has an 8″ stroke, and is weather sealed for longevity. Using the wireless electric actuator’s downward force on the springs and grading box, the hitch of the Infield Grader tops out against the mower using the weight of the operator and mower to put applied force to the loosening and grading action. The actuator can be connected to your mower's battery or to an onboard battery(onboard battery not included).

Travel time between fields is a breeze with the set of wheels & finish attachment carrier. The wireless actuator provides the ability to raise the tool out of play, allowing for ground clearance to move from field to field. Roll up your mat and place it in the carrier or watch the broom raise off the ground as you raise the tool with the actuator.



Mini-Box Grader

With wireless control of the electric actuator powered “Controlled Force Technology,” the operator can quickly and effectively use the mini-box to spread and level loosened material and collect loose debris & rocks with precision and ease. It can effectively reset the grade around home plate, sliding areas, along base paths, and warning tracks.


Loosening Teeth

The loosening teeth ensure the surface has been properly decompacted to level. The adjustable and replaceable teeth can loosen the infield skin from 0″ up to 1-3/4″ deep depending on the application and conditions. The operator may lock the depth in place and remove every other tooth as desired to accommodate material flow.


Reversible Blade Edge

The 1/2″ thick grading blade is shipped with a smooth edge for precision grading, however it may be flipped over to a serrated edge for more aggressive action. The smooth edge is best for infield mix leveling, whereas the serrated edge is best for gravel and other more coarse materials.

  • This is a must have for transforming your infield into an outstanding surface. We have 6 fields that we play on and it has made a tremendous difference in smoothing all of them out. We also spend money on turface every year, replenishing what has compacted or washed away. After using this on the fields for the first time, it has pulled so much back up that it almost looks like we added more this year, but we haven’t. This tool has more than paid for itself and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a smooth, level playing surface. As a bonus, it can be used as a gravel grader and I was able to transform our gravel road, removing pot holes and low spots within a few hours. I can’t speak to the longevity yet, but it appears to be well built and customer service has been outstanding.

  • Purchased the ABI infield grader this spring and I could not be more satisfied with the job it does on our infield. Very solid construction so I know it will last for years. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to improve their infield and make the field maintenance easier.
