Make The Field Last

Longevity of the field hinges on proper drainage and doing the work to keep the ground maintained. With the Force laser grading it’s easier than ever to direct water and avoid material loss– two elements that play a big part in fields getting worn down.

Step Up Your Infield Game

The Force laser grading system has the reliable precision you need to take your ball field or landscaping maintenance to the next level. Once you use a Force machine for laser grading, there’s no going back.

Everything You Need

Accessibility
The Z-23 is a slim mini grader designed to be uniquely nimble. When you laser grade using a Force machine, you can leave behind the cumbersome equipment. 

Labor
You don’t need a team to get perfection. With the Z-23 laser grading system, one operator can level the field, which frees up your crew to focus on the other jobs needed to get your ball field ready. 

Budget
With the Z-23 you can eliminate paying pricey contractors to laser grade your ballfields by empowering your crew with the capability to laser grade whenever it’s needed.  

Independence
Better fields are just a consultation away. Our technicians will give you in-depth training so you know all you need to know to get perfect results.

New Construction

Start with finesse by building your ball field to the exact standards you require. When you start with precisely level ground, your players will feel it when they play.

Regular Maintenance

Laser grading touch ups before and after each game keep your ball field in great shape, leaving no room for the quality of the skin to slip.  

Heavy Renovation

When dealing with a ball field that needs some serious renovation, the Force can get the field back to brand new.

All The Bells And Whistles

Internal Hydraulic Control System

The hydraulic system on the Z-23 can be built with a manual-operation exclusive or manual/laser-ready configuration. The manual-operation exclusive build is not upgradable after initial factory-build. The laser-ready build configuration can be operated manually without the use of the separately purchased laser electronics should an operator not have them available.

Laser Grading Products

Force Z-23
Zero-Turn Infield Groomer & Laser Grader
The ABI Force is the only infield groomer that has been built from the ground up with the sole purpose of caring for the game. This means more than just grooming the top surface of your infield skins before games. It means properly preparing the whole infield profile so that it is safe and playable.
Scarifiers
Make Easy Work of Extreme Hardpan and Vegetation
The Ripping Teeth make easy work of extreme hardpan and vegetation outside of the field. The rippers enable the Force Z-23 to be used to maintain gravel roads, parking lots, and even complete seedbed preparation jobs. These teeth temporarily replace the VibraFlex groomer or Profile Blades™ and are adjustable from 0 - 6". With bolt-on tips are easy to replace when worn. • Great for Gravel and Dirt work • Replaceable Tips for long life • 9" or 12" Shanks to fit your needs • Set of 7

Mini-Box Blade attachment gives the Force Z-23 extra earth-moving muscle and unmatched versatility. The Mini-Box Blade easily mounts to the Force Z-23's unique mid-mount attachment system with drive-over capability and easy spin-on locks. With fingertip control of the powerful hydraulic & spring-loaded arms, users can quickly and effectively carry material, remove loosened debris & rocks, grade, and level with finesse-all while moving forward and maintaining perfect visibility! Skip the handwork and quickly level and grade in the tightest areas or on surfaces where a light footprint is necessary.

Force Stealth Blades
Stealth Blades for Force Z-23
Our proprietary Stealth Blade design offers the perfect subsurface compaction relief. The middle ground between the Profile Blades and Scarifiers, Stealth Blades offer less resistance to cut through thicker-rooted vegetation, with ease. Great for de-weeding an infield skin, or vegetation removal off the skin. • Extreme Compaction Relief • Heavy-duty build • Set of 7
Force Versiblade Mini-Box
Finish or Laser Grade without Causing Compaction
The VersiBlade Mini-Box gives the Force Z-23 extra earth-moving muscle and unmatched versatility. It easily sifts through dirt, so operators can do a pass to dig aggressively, decompact the soil, and dislodge rocks. Then they can come back through as needed to gather roots and rocks into a spoil pile without bringing excess dirt since the VersiBlade allows soil to flow through. With fingertip control of the powerful hydraulic & spring-loaded arms, users can quickly and effectively carry material, remove loosened debris & rocks, grade, and level with finesse-all while moving forward and maintaining perfect visibility. Skip the handwork and quickly level and grade in the tightest areas or on surfaces where a light footprint is necessary. • Move / Level / Pack • Earth-moving Muscle • Attach with ease

Expert Perspective

The laser grading setup is great for huge projects and small projects. I use it to laser grade our infield and warning track — sometimes up to five or six times a year, depending on special events.
