Got done with my ripper set-up for my mini skid. :drinkup:

Works way better than I expected. I took into an adjacent field and was able to get it almost all the way down for maximum depth. The machine lugged a bit, but not as bad as I thought for a stupid 27 horse Kohler motor. One of these days I'm going to swap in a 33 horse generac and make the sucker hum.

If I got into to super compacted conditions I figured I could take off one or two of the rippers. The whole idea though is to break open the ground before I use a tiller.

very nice, I'm sure it will help with digging as well

Nice man. Whats the angle iron above the plate for? I would add a few gussets to increase the weld area on the tooth mount sleeves

First off, notice the 3pt. hitch pins on the loader arms. I have those on there to stabilize my hoe attachment so that I can push and pull with the hoe without moving the mounting plate, or putting pressure on the ram.

The angle iron was to hold a hitch pin, and then I was just going to take a piece of steel to connect the loader arms to the ripper. That way I wouldn't get pressure against my cylinder when ripping.

The whole idea was to be able to do a push or pull ripper, but, I think I'm just going to keep it as a pull style, scrap the angle iron, and just use a 3" cylinder stop to keep the ram from bottoming out.

As for the gussets, I'll keep that in mind. In all reality though, the machine only has so much power along with only so much weight, so my gut tells me that I won't have a problem with pressure against the mounts.

If they break, you'll be the first to know that I was wrong. :)

Thats a good idea with the 3 pt.
and you're probably right with the miniskid

Looks familiar ;)

I tried both directions. Has better luck pushing than pulling though!

Looks like a wheeled dingo, might be the reason why the push works better than the pull.

I was super surprised at my machine in reverse. I was expecting to spin the tracks, but I think the ripper teeth keeps you pulled downward as you go keeping better traction.

Of course, you had to be right.......


Used it today in a landscaping bed that had old tree roots. Pretty much bent the C-channel used to mount the teeth. The welds held but the lack of the mounts being boxed in was the Achilles heel.

Part of me thinks that I straddled the old stump, and thus bending them outward.

I was extremely surprised it happened but it did. The machine has more power than I thought.

I'll be having a shop re-make the mounting brackets again and boxing in the C-channel along with extra gussets.

I hear ya! But it is what it is.

The ripper was working great though before it broke. Once the ground was ripped up I was able to take the Stihl FS90 with the yard boss tiller head on the end and easily till and grade the area without having to bring in a walk behind tiller.

Still had one tine left and thought it was slow I was able to get it done.

If you want to borrow it, your more than welcome, might cost a pretty penny though for the shipping. :laugh:

Pretty cool. I actually found these about five years ago and thought about trying to get a set, but they weren't sold in the states. Only Australia.

Older thread but I just finished building my ripper setup for my TL130 Saturday. Tested it out Sunday and its perfect.. We have a few bare spot a disc wouldn't break up so I built this using inspiration from this thread. Worked like a champ.

For the mounting plate I used and old set of forks. Cut and notched the bottom using a torch then welded in a piece of 4x4x1/4in square tubing 5ft long. The rest I used 1/4in flat bar for re-enforcements and 2x3x1/4 rectangle tubing for the shank mounts

Looks good!
I rented one similar to that from my local Bobcat dealer a while back and it worked great. They had it abandoned in the back and the guy felt bad for charging me $400 for a months rental so instead he just sold it to me for $400.

Cant beat that! I've got $196 in this one. That's rippers, steel flat bar, rectangle tubing and pins. The rest I had around the shop

My JD land plane has hydraulic scarifiers and works pretty good. First thought that came to mind when I saw the boar teeth attachment was that it would be a great rear stablizer for going up steeper slopes and for stablizing a machine while drilling post holes in addition to working as a ripper.
Interesting concept but I can see a set (of the rear boar's teeth from the Utube video) getting ripped off a 10k lb CTL if you hit a stump.

The front mounted ripper looks more versatile for ripping.

Where do you get the ripper teeth from?

Ebay. That's the cheapest place I could find them. All the local places wanted close to $40 a ripper.
