Leading Edge Attachments, Inc. now offers the patented Multi-Ripper TalonTM Bucket as the new addition to the Multi-Ripper SHARC Product line. LEA Multi-Ripper Products have shown to replace hammers, blasting and rock trenchers, for a fraction of the cost. Designed mainly for utility pipeline contractors, the new Multi-Ripper Talon Bucket works on the same principal as the award winning Multi-Ripper Bucket, except the bucket is very narrow, and the leading edges have been redesigned so that the center rib can be eliminated, thus improving capacity fill and dumping for a narrow bucket. The performance of this style of maximum breakout “one tooth at a time” bucket greatly exceeds all other designs of rock bucket ripper combinations and has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by avoiding the use of rock trenchers, hammers and blasting. The made in America Multi-Ripper Talon Bucket is the newest addition to the highest quality and most productive rock ripper bucket combinations available on the market.
The Leading Edge Attachments, Inc.® patented Multi-DigNRipTM Bucket can replace hammers, blasting and rock trenchers, for a fraction of the cost, offered specifically for high production rip and load applications where a wider rock ripping bucket is required. Manufactured in the USA, the Multi-DigNRip Bucket is a combination of the high force producing Multi-Ripper® Bucket, and the high capacity of the proven DigNRipTM Bucket.
The patent pending “STAG” Bucket is a new style, high penetration bucket utilizing “staggered tooth” technology. It is designed for excavators, allowing the operator to easily dig compacted soils, shale, stratified materials, shot rock or frozen ground with higher concentrated breakout force for a price that is lower than the award-winning Multi-Ripper Bucket. The STAG bucket design allows the operator to focus the excavator’s full breakout force on one tooth at a time because the front leading edge is angled. Creating flat trench bottoms is also easy with this new bucket because the teeth are on the same plane, similar to a conventional bucket. The STAG bucket is manufactured using T1 alloy steel and the powerful MTG KingMet teeth and is available for any excavator from 22,000 to 200,000 pounds. The Multi-Ripper Teeth are also available for some models, to provide even more penetration.
The “Single Pointed Ripper Bucket” (SPRB) is a new style ripper/bucket combination for excavators and backhoes that allows the operator to easily rip rock, coral shale, caliche, decomposed granite, limestone, sandstone, asphalt or frozen ground with the maximum breakout force, pry out and carry stumps or boulders, rip a clean narrow V trench for laying utilities, plus scoop and load material. The (SPRB) is a patent pending new design that allows the operator to own a relatively inexpensive Single Pointed Ripper (SPR) plus allows the operator to scoop and remove ripped debris without requiring the tool change or machine change to use another bucket. The sides are solid high strength HARDOX 400 steel slabs that are arranged in a V shape. These plates converge at the bottom and are connected to structural member that holds a single replaceable tooth. The tip radius is shorter than the standard bucket to keep the breakout forces high, but is long enough to form a V shape that is structurally sound for ripping and prying.
The Multi-Ripper Bucket for ripping and digging rock is now available in a new larger 120-metric-ton size class (220,000- to 300,000-pound class). Called the Hi-Cap Multi-Ripper Bucket, it is available for larger machines (i.e. Hitachi EX1200, Komatsu PC1250) and the wider versions have five shanks.
Hi-Cap Multi-Ripper Bucket is now available for the 120-metric-ton size class (220,000- to 300,000-pound class). The SHARC (staggered shanks on an arc) technology allows the attachment to slice through any ripable rock. There are no extra hydraulics involved; 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 rolling of the Multi-Ripper Bucket always provides the full multiplied breakout force individually on each tooth so that the substrate is ripped out by each individual tooth lifting action. The result is a relatively flat trench bottom, and nice clean ripped sidewalls. One excavator and operator can perform the work normally done by two, without the use of trenchers, blasting or hammers.
The Hi-Cap Multi-Ripper Bucket for quarries and mining operations works on the same principal as the Multi-Ripper and the standard Multi-Ripper Bucket, except it allows more capacity. The performance of this style bucket exceeds all other designs of rock, Vee-trenching, or ripper bucket combinations.
Hi-Cap Multi-Ripper Bucket uses “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. Maximum breakout force is applied sequentially to each tooth.
A DigNRip excavator bucket functions similarly to that of a trencher, for severe rock and frost removal. The ripper tooth tips are located at special computer generated positions that combines the contact positions associated with a rolling movement of the bucket cylinder and the sweep action of the stick. Also, the angles of the teeth have been strategically positioned, so that the bucket performs maximum ripping. It is constructed of tough AR400 steel and offered with Cat, Hensley or Esco brand teeth.
