Vail Products has produced the parallel lift ripper/scarifier for the new Volvo G900 line of motor graders. Extending the Volvo motor grader only 31″ (G930) the new Vail parallel lift ripper, as opposed to a radial lift, the ripper and scarifier teeth maintain the same angle of attack to the soil at all levels. Vail Products has produced a parallel lift ripper that not only achieves a minimum length extension of the motor grader, but also excels in high ground clearance (high exit angle, 30 degrees) an operator can enter and exit ditches or load the motor grader onto a trailer without concern of scraping the ground. The parallelogram design also adds versatility to the ripper/scarifier attachment. Often operators will need to add a tire carrier, wheel compactor, or other specialty attachments to the ripper/scarifier. With a parallel lift ripper/scarifier, the operator can easily add these attachments and maintain the intended functionality of both the ripper and attachment.
