The following is our Equipment and Technology Focus on Field Groomers.
ABI Force Z-23
The Force Z-23 by ABI (pictured above) was engineered to empower ballfield groundskeepers and sports field managers to get their work done with maximized efficiency. The patented design enables a lighter, smaller-footprint, zero-turn platform to do the work of much larger and heavier equipment. Users can easily swap out additional attachments on the job, with no tools required. Trusted by dozens of professional baseball teams, the Force is a commercial-grade machine that can do it all with zero-turn efficiency and hand-work level precision. The Force’s versatile system of quick-change attachments enables users to handle game-day prep, daily grooming, regular maintenance or seasonal renovation of entire fields. Use one machine to laser grade, edge, groom, finish, aerate, overseed and fertilize. The Force Z-23 handles whatever nature throws at you to get your field in safe, playable condition with professional-level results.

Redexim Turf Tidy
The Turf Tidy is a versatile sweeping machine, allowing for dethatching, verticutting, sweeping or flail cutting. The Turf Tidy’s fully floating head follows the ground contours, ensuring accurate cutting and excellent pickup. Wet and dry leaves, pine needles, sweet gum tree balls and even cores are quickly and easily cleaned up. The high-lift hopper can easily be emptied into a trailer or dumpster.
STEC Fairway Brush
The STEC Fairway Brush is a multipurpose, tow-behind implement that will help you and your staff be as efficient as possible in your field grooming and maintenance practices. This ground-driven rotary brush will help with dethatching, dew removal, working in topdressing, reducing worm castings, multidirectional cutting, and controlling turfgrass diseases. The ability to switch between precut and topdress modes quickly and easily makes this an ideal machine for sports fields and golf courses. The electrical cylinders allow you to tow and control the brush with a variety of carts and vehicles that are already part of your equipment fleet.
Toro Field Pro 6040 infield groomer
The Toro Field Pro 6040 infield groomer features commercial-grade construction, ergonomic operator comfort and versatile attachment options. Clear sightlines allow operators to accurately grade the field without straining to see what they’re doing. The Field Pro 6040 MultiTool includes an integrated MultiTool box grader and a MultiTool adjustable carrier to quickly and accurately grade, groom and perfect infields. When fitted with the optional laser grading system, the Field Pro 6040 will easily grade infields for optimal playing conditions. Additional attachment options include drag mats, grooming brooms, tooth rakes and more. The MultiTool box grader is constructed of high-strength steel with a changeable wear edge. It can be fitted with an optional tool holder for implements such as an edger, root cutter and planer blade. The MultiTool adjustable carrier allows for coarse or fine scarifying with standard solid or spring tine toolbars. Hydraulically controlled depth and angle adjustment provide precise interaction.
Turf Teq Power Rake
The Turf Teq Power Rake is the perfect tool for all types of field grooming, turf renovation and baseball diamond revitalization. The unit features a 36-inch-wide drum. The pivot angle of the drum can be adjusted to the left or right from the operator position. The unit also features a hydrostatic transmission, 13-horsepower Honda engine and on-the-go differential lock. The multi-use capability of the machines allows you to convert it to a power edger, power broom, brush cutter or plow.
Wiedenmann Terra Groom
The Wiedenmann Terra Groom is a multi-functional groomer used best on athletic fields to brush in sand and any other topdressing materials to achieve even distribution of infill on surfaces without leaving lines and stripes. It can break down cores, disperse dew, and reduce mower maintenance, while promoting healthy grass growth. When used on artificial turf, the Terra Groom raises the artificial turf fibers and levels the surface and/or the infill material. It consists of three rows of special groomers — two straight and one being zigzag mounted — all three easily interchangeable. The working width is 74 inches and is available with a 3-point hitch mounting frame to attach it to a tractor (or any vehicle above 15 hp.). It can also be fitted with bogey wheels and an electric actuator to be attached to utility vehicles.
