Leading Edge Attachments’ High-Capacity Multi-Ripper Bucket
December 18, 2007

leading-edge-bucketUntitled-1Leading Edge Attachments offers the High-Capacity Multi-Ripper Bucket for quarries and mining operations. The High-Capacity Multi-Ripper Bucket utilizes the SHARC (Shanks on an ARC) Technology, meaning that the bucket functions similarly to that of a trencher except it uses the hydraulic excavator rolling action to rip. The staggered ripper teeth fracture the substrate in sequential order. No two ripper teeth align with each other, so that the maximum breakout force is applied sequentially to each tooth. The distance from the excavator stick pivot to the tooth tips is also shorter than the standard bucket for the machine. The shorter distance actually multiplies the tooth tip force.
