Choosing a tractor ripper often depends on the size of your plot. The ripper (or tractor ripper) is in fact a machine that, combined with the right tractor, allows you to work your plot (subsoiling or scarification) in an easy and effective way.
Subsoiling is often alternated with hoeing (which mixes the deepest and most inactive levels of the soil), both to save time and apply a soil fertility conservation technique; in fact, scarification allows a deep cutting of the soil, creating a long-lasting macroporosity and good crumbling.
This technique gives structure to the soil, allowing excellent drainage and the consequent good development of the roots.
A tractor ripper needs lower driving force compared to a plough, so it allows you to work, in the same amount of time, a surface that is almost twice as double as that of hoes.The tractor ripper is particularly effective with compact and dry soils, allowing a good crumbling. Its special operation allows lower or no alteration of the profile of the soil layers, obtaining good macroporosity of the soil, which will look uneven on the surface and marked by a series of small furrows.
All the machines on our catalogue are equipped with safety bolts on each blade, reversible and replaceable ploughshares, pairs of gauge wheels and coulters. Tractor rippers can be divided in two categories:
