We make these rippers for backhoe loaders and mini excavators of 3, 5 and 8 ton operating weight. The shank is made of high tensile steel, whereas the tip of the ripper where the tooth point is attached is made from 400 BHN steel. This portion is custom made with precision machining and drilling so that the tooth can be securely attached. The tooth is replaceable as it wears out. Usually made for our customer in Australia.
