Vails Frost/Rock Ripper

Updated Sep 30, 2010

The X-Ripper, for mini and large excavators, is a single point ripper designed for Excavators and Large Backhoes.. The X-Ripper will rip through rock, frozen soil, caliche, asphalt and the most severe sub-soil conditions. The curvature of the X-Ripper shank is specifically designed to maximize the available cylinder power and machine weight to breakthrough the rock and keep you digging.

The X-ripper is the only single-point ripper with a lifting eye integrated into the blade for ease of maneuverability, storage and positioning of the ripper before machine attachment. The X-Ripper will fit most any pin grabber quick coupler. 

Stop abusing your bucket and get through the toughest soil conditions with the Vail Severe Duty X-Ripper. The Vail X-Ripper is warranted against Shank breakage for a full three years.
