INNOVATORS & INNOVATIONS A CLOSER LOOK AT THE INNOVATORS AND INNOVATIONS

that have been vital to our successes at ABI...

BOB & JIM KISER are renowned in the equine world for their innovative work developing worldclass arena footing, managing the footing for international equine shows, and inventing the worldstandard in professional arena drags, the Kiser Dragmaster®. Bob’s development of Profile Blade TechnologyTM revolutionized the way arena footing is maintained!

KEVIN KEIGLEY, ABI’s founding President, has decades of experience in the commercial contracting and landscaping industries, and is named on eight separate patents. He uses the tools he builds, and builds the tools he’d want to use, giving him valuable insight into making our customers’ everyday work easier and more effective.

OUR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

THE PATENTED WHEEL-LIFT SYSTEM found in the Rascal line of ATV drags turns ATVs, UTVs or most any tow vehicle without a 3-point hitch into a serious work machine! This system raises and lowers the wheels, which in turn, raises and lowers the frame and ground contact points of the Rascal. The wheel-lift system may also be operated from the seat of the tow vehicle with the optional electric actuator.

4

PATENT-PENDING PROFILE BLADE TECHNOLOGY consistently conditions soil beneath the surface along the entire width of the blade, at a specified, controlled depth. This technology is used for a variety of different applications from horse arena maintenance to baseball infield maintenance work. Profile Blades truly are a game-changing technology!

ACCORDING TO OUR CUSTOMERS... ANNIE, HORSE OWNER & RASCAL PRO USER says:

“After careful research of the arena rakes and arena drags currently on the market in Australia, my husband and I settled on buying a Rascal Pro for me to use in my horse arena. The service we received from the team at Priefert was faultless from my first enquiry until delivery of my Rascal Pro...

My Rascal Pro surpassed my expectations in every way...

...It is an extremely well-constructed, well-designed piece of equipment of exceptional quality and great versatility. Importantly, adjustments for my requirements are simple, it is easy to manoeuvre and the results after use are sensational. My overall experience with Priefert has been excellent and my satisfaction with my Rascal Pro complete.”

GLEN MORGAN, GENERAL MANAGER OF THE NCHA says:

“With excess of $700,000 in prize money distributed at the 2012 NCHA Futurity it is crucial that every horse and competitor has an opportunity to win the Championship. The KISER DRAGMASTER and the KISER EDGE...certainly ensured the arena surface was conditioned consistently enabling every horse to be shown to its maximum potential throughout the 11 days of competition.

AT ABI, WE BUILD TOOLS WE WANT TO USE: Tools designed to make your job easier and get your work done quicker. Tools designed to be easy to maintain. Tools that will last years and years.

INNOVATIVE TOOLS THAT WORK, EVERY DAY.

...Preparing the surface with the Kiser Dragmaster after each herd ensured the longevity of the surface and saved the NCHA thousands of dollars!

KRISSY & HEATH HARRIS, PRO HORSE TRAINERS say:

“Our equestrian business is so diverse - we train showjumpers, dressage horses, trick riding horses, live show horses and everything in between. Since using the KISER EDGE, both our arenas have improved out of sight. The Edge is the first arena rake that I have used that deals with the base of the arena as well as the sand surface. I’ve found that the base is more even – and that is really important when you have showjumpers – as the take-off and landing sides of the jumps take a real pounding. The trick riding arena has also improved with constant use of the rake. The footing for trick riding is paramount—if the horse falls or stumbles when you are hanging off the side or underneath, it can get extremely dangerous. The Kiser Edge is quick and easy to use—so dragging the arena is not a chore—and the results are fantastic.

PROFESSIONAL EQUESTRIANS WHO USE ABI®: Pat & Linda Parelli, John Lyons, Stacy Westfall, Al Dunning,  Boyd Rice, Debbie McDonald, Shawn Flarida, Sharon Camarillo, Stran Smith, Carol Rose, Matt McLaughlin, Lynn Palm, Bob Avila, Craig Schmersal, Ed Dabney, Raye Lochert, & more!

DEVELOPED BY KEVIN KEIGLEY to produce fine-tuned, professional results without the use of PTO or hydraulic controls, the TR3’s PATENTED 3-IN-ONE DESIGN pairs scarifiers and a finish rake—both set at the optimum angle for controlled results—with an auto-leveling blade. Used together, the three ground contact points simultaneously loosen, level, and rake the ground to produce consistent results across a variety of applications and materials. The design of the TR3 informed the development of the Rascal line of products and countless other innovations at ABI!

Used by American Organizations: AQHA, NRHA, NCHA, & NRCHA ABI products used during the World Equestrian Games, Quarter Horse Congress, AQHA World Show, all American NRHA & NCHA National Shows, the Australian NCHA Futurity, and many more!

AUSTRALIA’S MOST VERSATILE TRACTOR TOOL

®

WE DARE YOU TO FIND A JOB

THIS TOOL CAN’T TACKLE.

INVENTED BY ABI’S PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER, KEVIN KEIGLEY, in 1996, the TR3­—the Tractor Rake 3-in-1—doesn’t pull any punches. Welded out of heavy steel, the TR3 is capable of performing nearly every dirt-work job you ask it to do. It has the finesse for fine horse arena work, the strength to renovate a gravel parking lot, the durability for daily commercial landscaping use, and the versatility to excel at everything else in between. The TR3 is the only 3-point tractor tool that loosens, levels, and rakes on every pass without the use of hydraulic or PTO controls!

THE TR3®: THREE TOOLS IN ONE

The TR3’s industry-exclusive

PATENTED LEVELING BLADE

floats to automatically level high & low areas, and can lock in place for more aggressive grading. In the floating position it will catch high areas and drop material into lower areas automatically. If the area is already level it will help to maintain a perfect grade while raking. When locked, the blade can be used like a box blade for traditional “cut-&-fill” grading.

6

The SCARIFYING TEETH loosen the ground up to seven inches deep! The heavy unit weight and ground-entry angle enables this tool’s teeth to penetrate even the hardest conditions. The stabilizing wheels support the tool to gauge penetration depth and to mitigate tractor undulations. The TR3 can move easily from gentle sand grooming to breaking up hardpan—no retooling required!

The 19mm hardened-steel FINISH RAKE is crafted for long life and is replaceable in one foot sections. Beyond pulverizing clumps of material and leaving a beautifully smooth signature finish, the finish rake also enables the user to push backwards to move dirt like a mini dozer into low areas, rip out vegetation, move material to fill in washouts, and accomplish other light land clearing jobs.

PATENTED INNOVATIONS

FOR HEAVY DIRT & GRAVEL WORK PATENTED, COMMERCIAL-QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

If you’re in the ground preparation business or are serious about property management, the TR3 Rake is an all-in-one solution you can rely on. We’re confident that it will even out-perform and replace the majority of your other tractor attachments! The TR3 was designed to sit at an angle so all ground contact points work simultaneously: loosen, level, and rake on every pass! Various widths available.

THE TR3 EXCELS at gravel driveway & parking lot renovation, commercial lawn installation, land reclamation, and nearly any other tough dirt or gravel project you face!

3 WAYS TO GRADE WITH THE TR3®

1

AUTO-FLOAT GRADING

The TR3’s leveling blade can float to automatically catch high areas and drop material into lower areas without being overly aggressive. The degree of “float” is adjustable.

FIXED BOX GRADING

2

The TR3’s leveling blade also locks into place for aggressive grading, similar to a box blade. Ideal for traditional “cut-&-fill” grading work.

THE TR3® CAN TACKLE ANY JOB YOU GIVE IT

With its adjustable rigid scarifiers and foam-filled gauge tires, it easily breaks through hardpan at a consistent depth. It’s even easy to push the TR3 backward for grading, ripping out vegetation, and piling debris. The finishing rake pulverizes dirt clods and leaves behind a perfect decompacted finish!

THE TR3® IS THE GO-TO TOOL

for contractors & property owners alike!

WORK FASTER & WORK BETTER For the commercial contractor, the TR3 Rake is the secret weapon in winning bids and turning a higher profit. For LAWN INSTALLATION, the TR3 can reduce on-site time up to 50% while producing the perfect compaction-free seedbed for improved seed-to-soil contact. For GRAVEL RESTORATION, the TR3 easily breaks up hardpan, removes potholes, and repairs large-scale washouts with ease. The TR3 rejuvenates old gravel, often eliminating the need to haul in more material! The TR3’s wheels prevent the scarifying teeth from going any deeper than they are set, and when offset, they allow the TR3 to maintain a sloped crown!

TR3® SKID STEER THE SKID STEER VERSION OF THE TR3 RAKE, engineered for the commercial landscaper, excavator and general contractor, features hydraulic scarifying teeth and a completely redesigned mounting system. The skid steer TR3 is ideally suited to maneuver tight spaces, steep inclines or other difficult terrain. When operating in reverse the TR3 can grade, loosen, and rake the ground. Operating in forward motion it can slice vegetation, pop rocks to the surface, push debris into piles and move a significant amount of dirt, like a mini dozer. Universal Mount. 2.29 meters wide.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY LAND & ARENA MAINTENANCE A MORE AFFORDABLE, SCALED-DOWN VERSION

of the Rascal, The Rascal LGR is a smaller workhorse ideal for property owners that have less frequent and smallerscale work to get done. It works well on shorter driveways, small horse arenas, round pens, paddocks, pastures, trails, and small seedbed preparation jobs. While the Rascal LGR has many of the larger Rascal’s features, the Rascal LGR is smaller and not as heavily built (with significantly smaller, lighter-duty wheels), Profile Blades are not available, and the back finish rake does not pivot to become a grading blade. However, it is built upon the same patented technologies as the larger Rascal, and it certainly outperforms comparably-priced competitors. The Rascal LGR is an excellent scaled-down alternative to larger drags and is sure to provide years of quality service. 127 kg & 1.5m wide. Requires 4WD 350cc quad or 20 hp compact tractor. Assembly Required.

FINISH & PULVERIZING RAKE As material is loosened the back rake evenly redistributes, pulverizes, and breaks up the clumps of material, leaving a beautiful signature finish in all material types. The top gold turnknuckle on the Rascal LGR™ enables the operator to adjust the ground contact angle of the rippers and back finishing rake. Turned all the way “IN”, it enables only the rippers to contact the ground. Turned all the way “OUT”, it enables only the back rake to contact the ground. In the center, it enables both rippers and rake to contact the ground at the same time. This rake is laser cut and made of 12mm-thick hardened steel for long life and is replaceable in sections.

ADJUSTABLE RIPPING TEETH Adjustable ripping teeth can handle any ATV-sized job from hardpan gravel driveways to horse riding arenas! They can penetrate into the soil from 0 - 13cm to break hardpan surfaces and get to the bottom of potholes and washouts, providing the ideal depth required for horse arena grooming and seedbed preparation. The independently adjustable & replaceable tips enable the Rascal LGR to loosen the ground at the depth desired while preventing unwanted displacement and repacking of the soil. This adjustment also enable the rippers to be pitched at the ideal 40-degree angle for penetrating the hardest ground!

UNLIKE TRADITIONAL MANURE SPREADERS, the ABI Elite Spreader is an innovative drop style spreader that offers improved safety, ease of use, lower maintenance, and additionally shreds and spreads manure with much more control. This process exposes more manure surface to sunlight to reduce parasite & fly reproduction and allows the manure to decompose far more quickly. Quick decomposition encourages a healthy pasture and greatly reduces pasture turn times. No exposed augurs or rotating blades and no moving apron chains or elaborate chain and gear systems make the Elite Spreader an exceptionally safe and easy-to-use alternative!

12-GAUGE STEEL PROCESSING BIN

PIN HITCH GROUND DRIVE SYSTEM The ABI Elite Spreader comes in 3 variations. The most popular is the 9.7 cubic meter ground drive model. Also available are 9.7 & 22 cubic meter hydraulic models.

A SAFER, CLEANER MANURE SPREADER THE GROUND DRIVE SYSTEM in the Elite Spreader offers a unique four-wheel ground drive design. The back wheels support the majority of the spreader load and feature high quality replaceable bearings, hubs & spindles. The front wheels are brought into contact with the ground with the ratcheting turn knuckle. Once in contact, they turn the internal agitator blades and shredding drum by way of a simple chain drive system that has virtually no maintenance and is simple to use.

INSTEAD OF FLINGING MANURE, the Elite Spreader’s agitator blades and shredding drum evenly break up and shred manure before evenly dropping it from the bottom of the unit. THE SHREDDING DRUM is powered by the ground engagement wheels to shred the manure. This shredded material decomposes very fast, helps reduce parasite eggs & fly larva, and eliminates the need to harrow after spreading. The blades are welded to the drum in a unique pattern to produce a continuous even spread. This ensures vegetation will not be smothered, creating unwanted bare spots in the pasture.

AGITATOR BLADES

THE AGITATOR BAR utilizes specially-designed blades that feed manure to the shredding drum and ensures consistent material flow. The blades are individuallyreplaceable and are protected by a shear pin in the event that an unbreakable object gets jammed.

Stable Mats TENDERFOOT STABLE MATS are soft & durable rubber mats that increase both horse and human comfort and safety when installed over dirt, clay or concrete surfaces. Tenderfoot mats are used in horse stables, foaling stables, horse trailers, muddy areas, barn walkways, wash racks, aisle-ways and more. These mats feature a textured anti-slip surface that is smooth and easy to clean. They additionally eliminate stable odors, reduce stable cleaning time by up to 50%, and are designed to provide the utmost strength, resilience and cushion even after many years of extensive use. A small amount of bedding used in conjunction with the mats absorbs wet spots on top of the mat, allowing you to clean nearly 100% of waste and odor. Tenderfoot Stable Mats are easily installed over any surface to increase traction and comfort with anti-fatigue qualities that reduce the amount of stress on your horse’s legs, back and muscles. These mats are manufactured with an environmentallysafe polymer bonding agent on a continuous press. This allows a variety of sizes to be offered with factory sheared edges for a perfect fit.

Horse Stables Priefert’s stables have been a mainstay in the equine industry for over 50 years. Currently used in thousands of barns across the globe, these stables are safe, attractive, and available in Premier or Diamond Series to meet the needs and desires of even the most selective equine enthusiasts. Priefert’s PREMIER SERIES stables are horse safe, attractive, and affordable, with convenient features for every horse owner. Priefert’s DIAMOND SERIES stables are the crème-de-la-crème of horse stables. There is simply no other stable manufacturer in the world that competes with the combination of style, ingenuity, design, functionality, durability, or beauty of the Diamond series. • All stable fronts come standard with your choice of a feeder or window. (Optional feeder includes hay rack and grain bucket). • No tools required! Standard connectors allow for free-standing stables. Special connectors available for stableto-wall or post connection. • With Slide-Action-Door-Latches, simply pull downward on the first vertical bar of the door and the door is ready to roll out of the way for full-width opening. Roll fully shut and the spring loaded bar will latch in place.

Horse Walkers THE PRIEFERT FREE-FLOW HORSE WALKER is the Rolls Royce of walkers. There is no other walker on the market that is as advanced as the Priefert Free-Flow Horse Walker, and it is used by the leading horsemen and women of many different disciplines. At Priefert we have accepted the fact that traditional belt-, chain-, and wheel-driven walkers will breakdown, wear out and need regular maintenance and support. We have countered this by introducing the PLANETARY GEAR DRIVE into the walker market. We are also the only remote controlled walker that can operate a surface rake.

Fencing WOOD POSTS

All wood posts are dense pine and pressure treated before all holes are drilled. They are then treated again to ensure the longevity of the wood. Every wood post comes with a domed top for safety and water shed.

DRILLED FOR VERSATILITY

Holes drilled for tubing are coned shaped for flexibility over terrain and in and around curves. This innovative design fits the outer diameter of the tubing in the center of the hole while allowing the tubing freedom of movement towards the outer dimensions of the drilled post.

STEEL RAIL

All steel rail is 48mm powder-coated galvanized pipe for longevity and durability. Many colours available.
