The PG250 Surface Grader provides quick, easy and efficient levelling of all types of surfaces including equestrian training arenas. Comes with a perimeter plough which is opened to pull in material built up against the side boards and an optional levelling kit which allows ‘one pass’ grading.


Standard Features

  • 2.5 metre width
  • Perimeter plough - 1.1 metre wide used to draw in material kicked up around the perimeter. Incorporates a rubber buffer to prevent damage
  • Raise and lower transport lever - easy to operate
  • Depth adjustment - allows correct blade setting for various types of surface
  • Adjustable drawbar for altering the hitch height to suit different towing vehicles
  • Wheel Track Levelling Kit - essential if a ‘one pass’ system is required. On any rough surface, the area immediately in front of each wheel is graded to provide a level track to travel on. This provides a stable platform for the mainblade to produce a smooth finish on the first pass
  • Low ground pressure tyres - 20 x 7 x 8. - ensuring all round capability on hard and soft surfaces
  • Swivel hitch with 50mm ball coupling
  • Strong construction
  • Quality paint finish

Options

  • Tine bar for use on rubber chip type surfaces
  • Alternative Hitches - e.g. Clevis, for use behind other suitable towing vehicles

 

What does this do?

When working horses in an arena, the surface material can quickly get kicked up by the action of the horse’s hooves. It gets built up around the perimeter boards, and the route used by the horse in its exercises becomes rutted and uneven - hardly ideal when schooling! The Logic Surface Grader is used on maneges (sometimes called menages) and arenas to ensure quick and efficient levelling of any surface material, whether it be simply sand or one of the more sophisticated, softer compositions such as rubber chip.

It can be towed behind any suitable vehicle for the arena composition (if available, a quad is ideal for this sort of application because of its low ground pressure). The Grader is light to tow, but it really works extremely well and can offer ‘one pass’ levelling to ensure the arena is quickly back to its smooth, neat and level best, ready for the next session. What’s more Logic’s unique design ensures that this grader really does provide the best level surface possible, with none of the skipping or bevelling that can occur with less well-designed graders.

Why do I need one?

You’ve invested a lot of money and effort into your arena: make the most of it by keeping it in the best condition possible! Levelling an arena by hand can take a huge amount of time and is a back-breaking task. In the past, people have dragged an old gate or pallet around the arena to quickly ‘dress’ the surface back to a level appearance. Although this can help smooth out the ruts, it doesn’t combat the build-up of material around the side boards and because it has no way of penetrating through the surface into the depths of the material, it cannot redistribute the subsurface material evenly resulting in the predictable ‘step response’ of your arena surface being lost.

The Logic PG250 features optional special tines which are highly recommended for these surfaces, restoring the even response which is the reason for investing in such a surface in the first place. The speed and ease of the operation has to be seen to be believed, quickly restoring your scuffed-up super-surface to its pristine best.

Where do I use it?

Arenas (Also called ‘schools’ ‘maneges’ or often ‘menages’). You can also use these graders on all-weather gallops. Never leave any implements out after use where animals can come into contact with them - you can work out why!

How does it work?

The grader blade has a ‘perimeter plough’ section which opens to allow material built up around the edge of the arena to be pulled away from the boards before levelling. A rubber skid on the outer edge of this section prevents damage to side boards. The optional tines penetrate into the surface, effectively redistributing the material to the chosen depth.

The wheel track levelling skids provide an absolutely level track for the wheels to run on, so preventing any skipping of the blade that can happen if the wheels jump over a particularly big bump. The depth adjustment is easily set, and the unit can be raised and lowered for transport or to allow the unit to be reversed into difficult corners.
