    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?
