Designed for use with excavators ranging in size from 4 to 80 tons (3.6 to 72.5 t), the Geith ripper penetrates and scores tough, hard and frozen ground. Standard design features include a replaceable tooth and wear shroud, reinforcing gussets and side wear protection plates — extending the life of the ripper. The ripper’s heavy-duty steel shank further increases ripping power.

Compared to a hydraulic breaker, the Geith ripper provides operators with a cost-effective and low maintenance alternative to rock breaking. In addition, the Geith ripper enables operators to extract rock in areas where blasting is strictly prohibited.

Using a Geith quick coupler, excavator operators can transition from ripping to loading in less than a minute by simply replacing the ripper with a bucket from the comfort of their cabs, according to the manufacturer.
