One Tool. One Pass. One Result.

The Ground Hog Arena Tool enables arena owners and rodeo event dirt crews to not only rework the surface with the unit’s hydraulically operated ripper shanks but also fill in the holes that are dug by performance horses. This is accomplished with the unit’s double grader blades, which allow for dirt to be carried by the unit and evenly distributed throughout the arena. Allowing for the unit’s pegged finishing roller to flawlessly compact and finish the ground safely for the horse and rider. The Ground Hog Arena Tool is available in seven different versatile sizes for both category 1 and category 2 tractors. The unit is available in three colors (blue, black, green). See the recommended horsepower chart for what size of unit works best with your tractor and arena.
