Leading Edge Attachments Offset Single Pointed RipperThe design of a new offset single pointed ripper allows the entire breakout force of the excavator and backhoe to be focused on one shorter tooth, yet still rip a side wall flat, says Leading Edge Attachments. The operator can additionally rip down one side of a trench, turn around and rip the opposite side, and then rip the middle for a clean flat wall not possible with center-mounted rippers, says the manufacturer. Rock, asphalt or frozen ground can be ripped with the tooth, offset to the side of the hydraulic carrier's stick.
