The MOAR (Mother of all rippers) is a new concept in heavy duty ripping from Nye. These rippers are built with extra steel plates to make them super heavy, the extra weight is additive to the carriers downward force, yielding enhanced penetration and performance.

The MOAR was originally conceived in Nova Scotia, Canada, for ripping shale on a particularly tough job where blasting was not permitted. Conventional rippers could only scratch the surface and were ineffective at penetrating the stratified rock. MOAR rippers are effective in: rock, shale, sandstone, coral, asphalt and frozen ground.

Nye produces MOAR rippers for excavators in the 15 to 100 ton (13.6 to 91 t) range. Quick coupler and pin-grabber models are offered by the company.
