3-POINT OR PULL-TYPE

3-Point or Pull-Type Configurations

3-Point Hitch

Designed for deep tillage with strength and durability in mind. This Category III, 3-point hitch is integrated into a two-bar frame design with main members of heavy-duty, 6”x6” structural steel tubing.

Drawbar Pull-Hitch (Small Frame)

The optional drawbar pull-hitch lets you match tractors, not equipped with 3-point hitches, to the 4830 in-line ripper. Equipped with four 280/70 R 15 tires, the drawbar hitch provides excellent field flotation and depth control.

Drawbar Pull-Hitch (Large Frame)

The optional drawbar pull-hitch lets you match tractors, not equipped with 3-point hitches, to the 4830 in-line ripper. Four 280/70 R15 tires rear and (2) 280/70 R15 tires on front mounted gauge wheels.

SHANK MOUNTS

Shank Mounts to Match Your Field Conditions

Shear-Bolt

Rigid, shear-bolt mounts are an economical choice for soils where rocks or other obstacles are not a concern.  Shear-bolt protection guards against shank damage from unexpected obstacles.

  • Shear force: 10,000 pounds (approximate)
  • 16” maximum shank working depth
  • For non-rock conditions

 

Spring Reset

Recommended for field conditions where obstacles or rocks may be encountered. A 4”x4” welded tube provides strength.

  • 2,500 pound point load
  • 20” trip height
  • 16” maximum shank working depth
  • 36” underframe clearance

 

PathFind’R™

Exclusive pivoting design allows the shank to deflect up to 6 degrees on each side for a total of 12 degrees of movement.

  • Basic spring reset design
  • Makes deep ripping possible on contours or terraces
  • Deflects impacts improving performance in rocky soils
  • Smoother steering under full power with tracked tractors
  • Reduces stress on implement frame and 3-point tractor hitch
  • Not compatible with pull-type hitch
  • 20” trip height
  • 16” maximum shank working depth
  • 36” underframe clearance

 

SHANK & POINT OPTIONS

MRD Shanks, Points and Wings (Minimum Residue Disturbance)

Choose from a variety of MRD shank points and wings to achieve optimum residue level and surface appearance.

  • 1-1/4” Profile
  • Austempered ductile, reversible wear bar
  • Welded chromium carbide side plates

 

2” Chromium Carbide Point

5” Shattering Wing

  • Residue remaining: 51% to 65%
  • Fracture: 36% to 52%

Low-Disturbance Shank Cap

  • Residue remaining: 51% to 65%
  • Fracture: 31% to 48%

No-Till Shank, Points and Wings

The no-till point and 8” wing break up the compacted soil layer, while the narrow ¾” shank slips through the soil leaving up to 86% residue on the surface. With replaceable wear parts, this no-till design offers up to 50% operation cost saving versus competitors.

  • ¾” profile
  • High-tensile steel shank
  • Austempered or chromium carbide points, wings and wear bar
  • Chromium carbide side plates
  • Residue remaining: Up to 86%
  • Fracture: 55% to 70%
  • Replaceable wear parts

 

2” Hard Surface Point

  • Best performance for rocky conditions
  • Residue remaining: 51% to 65%
  • Fracture: 31% to 48%
