Get Real Work Done with Your Lawnmower

You may not own a hundred acres, but the land you do own needs to be properly maintained. You can find quality riding mowers on every corner, in every town, but no one offers an effective gravel driveway grader designed specifically for the riding mower. The ABI Gravel Grader is an attachment that does the real work needed to properly renovate and prepare your gravel driveway. Never in Australia has there been such an innovation that adds value to your ride-on lawn mower...now you can get serious bang for your buck.

Transferred Weight

As the wireless electric actuator adjusts the downward force on the springs and grading box, the hitch of the Gravel Grader uses the weight of the mower as leverage to apply force to the loosening and grading action. Unlike other tools, blocks, rocks, or weights aren’t needed for this tool to work!

Gets Real Work Done

Unlike many of our competitors, whose loosening teeth only penetrate 1/8″ of an inch at a time, the ABI Gravel Grader’s ripping teeth will loosen up to 1¾” deep. This ensures the driveway has enough loosened gravel to properly grade, producing a smooth driving surface.

Crown Control

A proper crown helps minimize recurring potholes and the washboard effect. The ABI Gravel Grader’s exclusive-to-its-class Crown Control mechanism can pull loose gravel from the edges of a driveway and properly re-establish a crown.

ABI Attachments is known worldwide for “Innovation… not imitation”! The attachments we design are made in the United States, unique, and are full of features that separate us from our competitors. The Gravel Grader is no different! With features such as Coiled Springs, Crown Control capabilities, and an adjustable grading box, the ABI Gravel Grader is the only gravel attachment that will do real work from behind a riding lawnmower!

Coiled SPrings

Coiled Springs

The Coiled Springs of the ABI Gravel Grader allow the forgiveness needed to pull through tough areas. When using the wireless remote, the actuator will transfer a measured amount of downward force, from your mower, to the grader box. These Coiled Springs give you an exact amount of grading action without “spinning out”. When other grading attachments leave you stuck in the middle of a job…the Coiled Springs of the ABI Gravel Grader guarantee you, and your gravel driveway, success.

Grader Box

The ABI Gravel Grader comes with a 48″ grader box with ripping teeth that will loosen up to 1¾” deep! Unlike many of our competitors, whose loosening teeth only penetrate 1/8″ at a time, the ABI Gravel Graders ripping teeth do real work, ensuring the driveway has enough loosened gravel to properly grade, producing a smooth driving surface. These ripping teeth are adjustable and easily replaced, making them the most effective ripping teeth, for a mower designed gravel grader, on the market. The Grading Box has a pitch control, which is critical to its effectiveness. By lengthening or shortening the adjustable link, you can create more ripping or grading action depending on the results needed at the time.

Grader Box
Ripping Teeth

Ripping Teeth

The ABI Gravel Grader’s ripping teeth loosen up to 1¾” deep! These ripping teeth are adjustable and easily replaced, making them the most effective ripping teeth, for a mower designed gravel grader, on the market.

Gravel Capture Wing

Material Recovery Wing

The Material Recovery Wing allows material outside of the box width to be pulled to the center of the tool. The wing can be adjusted and set to below grade in order to grab loose debris on slopes.

ABI Gravel Grader

Reversible Grading Blade

The 1/2″ thick grading blade can be flipped to expose rock teeth to feather and sift material or a solid blade to move material without sifting.

Wireless Actuator

Wireless Actuator

The ABI Gravel Grader comes standard with an electric actuator when most of our competitors make their actuators optional. Some competitors even tie an inexpensive actuator to a cable system that inevitably will rust, seize and break. The ABI actuator is commercial grade, has an 8″ stroke, and is weather sealed for longevity. Using the wireless electric actuator’s downward force on the springs and grading box, the hitch of the Gravel Grader tops out against the mower using the weight of the operator and mower to put applied force to the loosening and grading action. The actuator can be connected to your mowers battery or to an onboard battery. (The onboard battery is not included)

Crown Control

Crown Control

The ABI Gravel Grader’s grading box has an easy to use “crown control’ mechanism that makes it the ONLY gravel grader, for a riding mower, that can pull your loose gravel from the edges of your driveway and properly re-establish a crown. And to assist with the “recapturing” of gravel that’s lost to the sides of the driveway, the ABI Gravel Grader comes standard with a “gravel capture” wing that is easily attached and removed.

Stabilizing Wheels

Stabilizing Wheels

The ABI Gravel Grader is balanced and stabilized by two substantial gauge tires which not only create a “ground plane” for the grader box, but also work in conjunction with the “coiled spring action” giving the ABI Gravel Grader its unique and patent pending “controlled force”. Because the wheels create a “ground plane” with the mowers wheels, leveling a gravel driveway is far more attainable.

The ABI Gravel Grader is packed full of advantages that changes the game for lawnmowers and pull behind graders! Advantages like: 1) Being able to reestablish a crown. 2) Using the weight of the mower instead of concrete blocks for weight. 3) And being able to adjust the grading box for deeper ripping or pulling more material. These are advantages our competitors cannot provide.

Gravel Grader Controlled Force

Controlled Force Technology

It is critical to understand why the ABI Gravel Grader works, when other driveway groomers fail! It is the physics behind our coiled springs and the applied “controlled force technology” that comes from the weight of the operator and mower! This innovative and patented technology eliminates the old fashioned practice of adding concrete blocks to the grader so it can dig into hard packed gravel and actually work. Using the wireless electric actuator’s downward force on the springs and grading box, the hitch of the Gravel Grader tops out against the mower using the weight of the operator and mower to put applied force to the loosening and grading action. One of the failures of simply applying weight to a competitor’s frame is that when the loosening and grading components hit compacted gravel, or carry too much material, the mower or tractor will spin out, making the grader useless. This is not true with the Coiled Springs of the ABI Gravel Grader! These “Coiled Springs” will allow the forgiveness needed to pull through tough areas. When using the wireless remote, the actuator will allow a measured amount of downward force to the grader box. This combination gives you an exact amount of grading action without “spinning out”.

Loosen Deeper

Loosen Deeper

The “Coiled Springs” are connected to a 48″ grader box with ripping teeth that will loosen up to 1¾” deep! Unlike many of our competitors, whose loosening teeth only penetrate 1/8″ at a time, the ABI Gravel Graders ripping teeth do real work, ensuring the driveway has enough loosened gravel to properly grade, producing a smooth driving surface. These ripping teeth are adjustable and easily replaced, making them the most effective ripping teeth, for a mower designed gravel grader, on the market. The Grading Box has a pitch control, which is critical to its effectiveness. By lengthening or shortening the adjustable link, you can create more ripping or grading action depending on the results needed at the time.

Crown Control

Crown Control

Being able to properly shed rainwater helps minimize reoccurring potholes and the “washboarding” that plagues so many gravel driveways! The ABI Gravel Grader’s grading box has an easy to use “crown control” mechanism that makes it the ONLY gravel grader, for a riding mower, that can pull your loose gravel from the edges of your driveway and properly re-establish a crown. To assist with the “recapturing” of gravel that is lost to the sides of the driveway, the ABI Gravel Grader comes standard with a “gravel capture” wing that is easily attached and removed.

Ground Plane Effect

Ground Plane Effect

With over 50 years of contractor grading experience to draw from, ABI Attachments knows that the design of a grader, no matter how big or small, should be with the grading box placed between two sets of wheels, creating a “ground plane” for the most effective grading possible. We could not leave that design out of the ABI Gravel Grader! The ABI Gravel Grader is balanced and stabilized by two substantial gauge tires which not only create a “ground plane” for the grader box, but also work in conjunction with the “coiled spring action” giving the ABI Gravel Grader its unique and patent pending “controlled force”.

    Good design overall with one major flaw, actuator top has a pressed cap which breaks easily, solid tube would be more reliable otherwise machine works as advertised and company is very responsive to replacing broken parts
