Easy Grade© is a revolutionary tool for maintaining a consistent depth of footing in any equestrian riding arena.
This patented solution was created and now developed by Dan Easley of Easley Excavating as a solution to the uneven footing problems his customers experience in their arenas.
Easy Grade© works by utilizing an adjustable wheel that acts as a depth gauge using the arena Class-I sand base as a reference. The steel fingers on the wheel penetrate the footing material but ride along the surface of the base creating an adjustable gap between a box-blade cutting edge and the base, representing the desired depth of the footing. The following diagram and video illustrate how the tool functions.
