Vail Products is proud to announce a new product to the construction, excavation and site prep industry, the Vail X-RIPPER!  The VAIL X-RIPPER is an exciting addition to the world-renowned Vail Products line of attachments. The X-RIPPER is vastly superior to the rippers currently used today in the construction, excavation and site preparation industries.  The Vail X-RIPPER has a WIDE array of new and improved features including a contoured tooth/adapter design, a lifting eye positioned for handling ease, and a center of gravity that enables optimal storage and presentation.  In addition, the Vail X-RIPPER has increased strength and service life, streamlined gusseting for minimal material build-up, and the Vail X-RIPPER works with or without pin style quick couplers. 


High-strength steel along with best-in-class manufacturing makes the Vail X-RIPPER the easiest to handle and toughest ripper in the industry.  Add the Vail X-RIPPER to your attachments and expand your versatility and enhance your productivity.
