Agrowplow Large Rippers

Agrowplow’s largest deep rippers are the best that deep ripping can be. Whether ripping at scale for broadacre cropping operations or ripping at the deepest depths, Agrowplow’s range of large deep rippers are the ideal platform for achieving consistent results every time.

  • No9 rigid and hydraulic shanks
  • High strength 200x200x9mm RHS steel frames
  • Trailing hitch options
  • High-floatation tyres and CTF widths to maximise performance
  • Leading/trailing shank layouts for efficient ripping at depth 

No9 rigid and hydraulic shanks
The No9 Shank is the perfect tool for shattering hardpan buildup while minimising soil inversion. Breakup compaction from machinery traffic and livestock with rigid and hydraulic breakout shanks. The No9 Rigid Shank offers over 6,000kg breakouts at the blade up to 450mm deep, ensuring you’ll see efficient shattering the entire soil profile.
The No9 Hydraulic shank also offers an amazing 1,800kg breakout at the blade. It uses Agrowplow’s unique scissoring breakout action. This action makes the shank to break back along a wide radial arc, allowing it to easily pass subsurface obstacles to reduce wear on the shank assembly, plough, and your tractor.
Leading/Trailing shank layout for extra deep ripping
AP91 uses Agrowplow’s leading/trailing shank layout. This allows hardpan shattering up to 600mm deep while protecting your deep ripper and your tractor from premature wear or dramatically increased input costs.
Deep ripping without inversion
The No9 Shank features a narrow shank profile to ensure you break up compaction without inverting the soil. This keeps valuable subsurface microorganisms at the soil surface where they can aid in plant growth while not bringing up deeper soil constraints where they can unbalance soil pH.
Narrow shank profiles also shatter subsurface compaction while decreasing draft requirements on your tractor. Wider shanks invert soil and increase the wear on tractors, meaning increased fuel and parts costs. Agrowplow’s narrow shanks maximise the operating efficiency of your plough, meaning lower fuel and wear parts costs.
Smarter shank design
Tungsten tiles and tungsten hardfacing across the shank blades create a protective barrier of soil around the blade, reducing wear on the blade and keeping it working efficiently for longer. Full-length shinguards protect the shank no matter what depth you’re working at, meaning less wear and tear on your shanks and money saved on replacing wear parts.
