The Chapman Machinery MG250 manege grader is perfect tool for levelling and grading all types of equestrian riding surface in manéges, arenas & sandschools. With attachments built onto a base frame, the menage grader can be tailored to your specific requirements as and when you need them – if you change your surface, you can add components to your MG250 to suit!
The MG250 Arena Leveller is a 8′ (2.4m) working width Arena Leveller, designed for levelling and grading a variety of arena surfaces quickly and easily.
The MG250 Arena Grader is perfect for the levelling and maintenance of arenas, gallops and rides. Available as standard as a towed unit for use behind almost any vehicle equipped with a 50mm ball or pin hitch. Alternatively the MG250 can be supplied as a 3-point linkage mounted version for use on compact or mid-sized tractors.
Built to an exceptionally high specification, the MG250 Menage leveller features high quality components & extremely durable Zinc-plating & powder-coated finish to ensure a long service life with minimal maintenance. Tried and tested design used extensively across thousands of arenas from small personal arenas up to competition / Olympic standard.
Arenas, sand schools and gallops are expensive – careful and timely maintenance can make the difference between a long-lasting, brilliant riding surface, and a hard, dusty surface which can endanger both you and your horses.In order to get the best return from your investment, regular maintenance must be carried out using the right tool for the job. It is true, many people use an old gate, or simple drag harrows to simply level the arena surface – but what is this actually doing for your expensive surface, and therefore for you and your riding experience?
To ensure you get the best from your investment, be it new or old, a quality grader will lift the top of the surface, level it, and re-lay it to a consistent depth and firmness across the whole surface. Hard spots are eliminated, dust is reduced, and drainage is improved. Furthermore, the wide width of the MG250 means you can level your surface quickly and with minimal fuss! For advanced fibre or wax stabilised surfaces such as CombiRide, Turfloat or CLOPF, a maintenance regime is essential as it orientates the fibres correctly to give the desired surface feel.
Featuring a pre-levelling bar to allow the large diameter wheels to roll smoothly over the surface; integrated hardened ground engaging tines with adjustable working depth; feathering levelling blade to smooth out high and low spots and a following roller (optional) to consolidate and orientate fibres across the surface, the MG250 is a high specification machine. Easy to use once set-up initially, the machine can be changed from work to transport modes at the flick of a lever, to ensure your grading remains consistent between use.
