Groomer Features and Benefits
What makes SportPro groomers better than other groomers on the market is the unique structure and the ability to be configured to perfectly suit the requirements for your specific arena moisture and additives.
3-Point Swivel Hitch
The SportPro M5 groomer comes with a patent pending swivel hitch that precisely follows the turns of the tractor around jumps and rails and straightens itself before locking when lifted.
This self-locking swivel hitch enhances safety and reduces hassle when pulling in and out of the arenas.
Ground-engaging components are designed to break up, dig, mix, fluff, smooth, and compact horse arena footing. Each component is independently adjustable. Change the surface tension in your arena as desired.
Once you have a configuration for everyday use, lock the tool to count on consistent, repeatable results, no matter who’s in the driver’s seat. Adjust the components as needed when you need to re-mix the additives in your footing or change the surface tension for conditioning your horses.
Adjust the depth of S-Tines to dig, lift, mix, fluff, and level the arena surface. S-Tines offer a safer way to go deeper, pulling up small fines and fibers that have settled to the bottom without damaging the base. S-tines are also suited for self-amending or self-installing additional materials, or fibers.
In contrast to the S-tines, scarifiers are rigid by design, giving them an enhanced ability to loosen hard, compacted materials. Arenas with high clay, a tendency to compact, or more water will benefit from the scarifier configuration as the primary component.
Swap the S-Tines and Scarifiers
The SportPro groomer allows a tool-less swap out of the available S-tines and scarifiers for arenas and facilities that would benefit from the capabilities of both. One set of S-Tines or scarifiers come standard on the groomer. You may choose to buy the other any time.
The SportPro M5 has two offset rows of coil tines, and each tine has two contact points instead of one. In their passive position, this setup maximizes the coil tines ability to fill in grooves and press down large fibers that have risen to the top. In the active position, the coil tines aerate, mix, and level the arena surface.
The smoothing bar’s cylinder shape allows material to flow under as well as over— creating a smoothing effect and preventing excess material from plugging up. Adjustable in quarter inch increments, the smoothing bar also accumulates some excess materials to drop into low areas to level the arena.
Rollers provide stability, compaction, and prevent tines from digging too deep into the surface. The twisted rod design maximizes packing, prevents trailing, and minimizes bounce.
Choose a single or double roller configuration. On the dual roller models, the front and back rollers add an additional level of gauge security and consistency, so you can drop and groom without worrying about catching on your base or mats.
The rail/wall blade can be added to pull material inward along the rail.
Wall Protection Wheel
A rail wheel is available for extra kick wall protection.
Riders and horses need footing they can rely on, which means having a dependable drag that’s built to last. Delicate linkages take the brunt of stress, but our purposeful design makes the SportPro stronger, more durable, and more efficient than other groomers.
The SportPro’s tough steel frame does not have a shell. This is to provide visibility and easy access to the individual components for any needed adjustments or upkeep.
Extended space between each component from front to back maximizes the flow of footing material. You can be sure you’re getting the comprehensive blending needed for daily maintenance.
The component spacing and length increases maneuverability, so you can groom your entire arena surface more efficiently than ever before, while significantly elevating the overall quality of the arena footing.
