ABI Force

Multi-Functional Ballfield Maintenance Machine

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.

Features & Specifications:

Purpose Built From The Ground Up

Speed And Precision

The ABI Force is a ZERO TURN chassis that provides industry-leading efficiency and control, making maneuverability and ease of use second to none. The ABI Force features a Stand-on design to enhance precision control, visibility and operator comfort. The operator no longer has to look behind to "drop and drag" an attachment. The ABI Force positions the operator at a top-down perspective, looking down and forward to see and make adjustments as needed, ensuring enhanced visibility and monitored engagement of attachments.

Responsive Variable Force Technology

The heart and soul of the ABI Force, ZTV is it's patented Responsive Variable Force Technology. This RVF Technology enables a small footprint zero-turn platform to do the work of much larger and heavier equipment, with a fraction of the otherwise required tractive effort. 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.

Speed Lock

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.

Depth-Lock

The Depth-Lock feature prevents mid-mount attachments from going any deeper into the infield surface that intended. This feature makes it easy to ensure consistent preparation from field to field and operator to operator.

Functionality

Up & Down Control

The ABI Force Spring and Rocker Arm design allows for unparalleled down pressure of your mid-mount attachments. The patented spring system up to 1,000 lbs of down pressure, but builds in forgiveness, so the Force can power through some of the toughest jobs.

Pitch Control

When utilizing the Mid-Mount Attachment, the pitch control allows you to properly control and engage the attachments into the ground. Swap between a pocketed attachment to the multi-function rake for combing or sifting use. Run your attachments separately or together, utilizing the pitch control.

Hydraulic Rear Lift Control

The Hydraulic Rear Lift Control features a swivel based design, allowing all rear attachments to mimic the movement of the machine, increasing tire and tight turn coverage. The design allows our attachments to pick up from the front, similar to the feathering done by hand, eliminating large piles upon leaving the infield surface. Change the pitch of your attachment, with a center mounted top link, adjustable for certain conditions or playing surfaces.

Performance

Kohler Command Pro EFI

The ABI Force is now equipped with ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION. An EFI system utilizes advanced computer controls teamed with a high-pressure fuel delivery system to provide peak power and fuel efficiency. The ABI Force now starts like a car with no carburetor issues, has increased fuel efficiency, and starts easily in the cold! – 23 horsepower

  • EFI V-Twin OHV
  • 4-Cycle Air Cooled
  • 5 Gallon/18.9L Capacity Unleaded Gasoline
  • EPA Compliant

Heavy-Duty 2-Stage Air Filter

Every ABI Force Z-23s comes standard with a Heavy Duty 2-Stage Cyclonic Canister Air Filtration System. No longer located near the engine, the Canister Air Filter has been relocated for ease of access. 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.

No More Broken Belts

Typically, machinery of this size runs off Hydraulic Drive System geared to a belt and pulley drive shaft. The lifetime of a belt can be unpredictable as belts break, and unfortunately, your machine is temporarily stuck. Not anymore! Each ABI Force is plumbed standard with Dual Stacked HydroGear Variable Displacement Pumps and Fixed Displacement Wheel Motors. The benefits are significant compared to typical belt-driven systems.

Standard Air Tires

The ABI Force comes standard with a commercial grade tire. The Standard Air Tire is a beefy traction and performance-based tire that gives the ABI Force a highly stance while establishing crucial ground contact for maintaining traction.

Tweel®-Yeah

The Premium never-flat Tweel® offers additional benefits not found in the standard air tire. The full-width poly-resin spokes flex when in operation, providing increased tire-to-ground contact. This added ground contact enables significantly more traction, more torque power and excellent lateral stability during material grading. The unique design of the spokes also helps soften the ride for enhanced operator comfort.

Operator Experience

Precision Control In Hand

We all know that handwork is precision work, and tradition has shown us that handwork yields the best results. So, what do we do when handwork level results are expected, and we face budgetary, workforce, time, and weather constraints? The answer is the ABI Force, which empowers the operator with precision control and incredible visibility, turning labor-intensive and time-consuming handwork, into precision mechanized efficiency.

Visibility

We stand up when we witness greatness, and we stand when we do our best work. So in designing the new ABI Force, we knew standing up would empower our users to get their best work done; like never before. Traditional seated drop-and-drag style bunker rakes have poor visibility, making precision work an uncomfortable and challenging task. It's time to leave behind the old bunker rake and take a stand for great work!
