Break it Up

The Drag Lites feature a unique adjustable scarifier blade that breaks up hard- packed surfaces. The attached mat then grooms the surface to a ready-to-play condition-all for the price of a standard steel link mat, which only smooths the surface. Made from tough rubber products, Drag Lite provides professional results, addressing today's environmental concerns by using recycled products. The 3-foot-wide and 6-foot-wide models feature structural steel lead bar and blade, industrial-grade fasteners, industrial rubber mat section, and extra-length pull chain.
