The newest heavy-duty ripper attachments introduced by Nye Manufacturing may, indeed, be more. However, the MOAR in this case stands for “Mother Of All Rippers,” says the company. Originally conceived for ripping shale in a non-blasting region of the Canadian Maritimes, MOAR excavator attachments are built with additional steel plates, from which the found weight adds to the carrier’s downward force for increased material penetration. MOAR models, in both quick-coupler and pin-grabber designs, are available for excavators ranging 15 to 100 metric tons in operating weight.
