What is a Ripper?

A ripper is an attachment that can be fitted to an excavator and then used to break up hard ground and surfaces, as well as rocksand difficult areas that would not initially be broken up with an excavator bucket.

Rippers are a cost effective attachment and are used extensively on construction sites dealing with structural demolition as weas preparing the ground for new framing. Rippers are also used extensively for landscape work as well as breaking up apronsand concrete.

What does a ripper do on an excavator?

An excavating machine for loosening layers of frozen soil, rock (usually of medium strength), and artificial surfaces in layerssing the tractive force of a prime mover. Rippers are used in construction together with other excavating machines to preparefoundation pits, canals, and trenches; they are also used for stripping work in open-pit mines.

Rippers are equipped with a trailer or mounted tined device with elements for attachment to the prime mover and a hydraulicdrive. A distinction is made between three-armed. four-armed. and parallelooram-mounted devices. Riopers may have remoteadjustments for the angle, operating width, and depth of ripping.

The working member of the ripper is a tooth with a replaceable tip and a wear-resistant protective covering. Modem rippersusually have a hydraulic drive to raise and lower the teeth, change the ripping angle of the tip of the tooth, control the mechanismthat positions the arms, and change the spacing of the teeth. Some rippers have shock absorbers to reduce the transfer of peakdynamic loads to the prime mover and attachments for working with push tractors.
