Tractor rippers for soil tillage, also known as rippers, is a machine often used in agriculture as an alternative to a hoe for its remarkable ability to break up soil when it is particularly compact and dry. This saves a lot of energy, halves the time needed to work the soil and preserves organic substances and micro-organisms.
Tractor rippers for soil tillage, once attached to the 3-point linkage of the tractor, allows what is known as soil tillage (or scarification). This procedure consists of breaking up its compact layers, which also allows making more space for roots.
These rippers consist of a sturdy supporting frame and 7 tines (or teeth), shaped and leaned forward in order to enhance soil penetration thanks to the fast moving forward of the tractor.
