Leading Edge Attachments Hi-Cap Multi-Ripper Bucket
December 17, 2007

Leading Edge Attachments offers the Hi-Cap- Multi-Ripper Bucket for ripping and digging rock. Until now, this powerful rock digging bucket design was only available for excavators up to 220,000 pounds. The new 120 Metric Ton size class (220-300,000 pound class) is now available for these larger machines (i.e. Hitachi EX1200, Komatsu PC1250). The wider versions also now have 5 shanks. The SHARC staggered shanks on an arc technology allows the Hi-Cap Multi-Ripper Bucket to slice through any rip-able rock. There are no extra hydraulics involved. Its power comes from the curl function, the boom force and the crowd force. The principle uses a bucket along with the power of the excavator to create a 100-percent breakout force when each tooth comes into contact. The staggered ripper teeth fracture the substrate in sequential order.
