so i got an AC 310, and recently ive been thinking of a ripper tooth on the back of a GT. and i think this will be the tractor to do it on. no major plans yet, but i do have an old moldboard plow which might turn into a donor frame. anyone ever do this before, im basically making a sized down version of a ripper on the back of a cat dozer

Should be fairly easy to do, And you can also add a section on the back where you can lay pipe fight in the ditch if you ever wanted too.

A cultivator would be easier to use I think. Most are basically like a tool bar to start with. You could use 1, 2, 3 or however many rippers you wanted, and still use it as a cultivator. Here's a pic of a sears cultivator, not mine but gives you an idea.

well its not going to be J shaped teeth, more slightly bent l shaped teeth. and only one of them, like the big dozers have. and i was thinking dually ag kit with 4 or 6 wheel weights total =D depending on if the homesteader sells.

ok heres the main shape of it. the only reason the plow idea came to mind is because when i turn a handle i angle the plow up or down, like id want to do to the tooth.ripper.jpg

im terrible on paint, its going to be more of an arc with a wear plate on the front, maybe 1/4" steel since i have a good amount i got for dirt cheap.

IMG00144-20111114-1356.jpg I made a ripper tooth for my excavator (not exactly what you are looking for, but same general idea). I made mine to help rip out stumps and get more digging/leverge than the bucket can get.

Made it out of 1" steel - the blade is about 18 inches long and 6 inches deep. I ground and hardened pyramid teeth on the front edge of the blade. I can use these to saw through roots. The bottom edge of the blade has an l shaped foot to help dig in and grab the stump.

I added a couple pictures of what it looked like when new - lot less paint on it now..... Overall the design was sucessful - it works good.

I guess to keep this on thread, you could build a backhoe for your GT, then use an attachment like this on the backhoe?!?!?!

Thats a pretty scary looking ripper tooth. That would turn your excavator into a real stump chewing Tyrannosaurus Rex.

This is the sub-soiler that I made from a digger shank and has a replaceable chisel tip. Will go down 14 inches and we have also used it to bury underground wire.

You can buy the ripper at TSC and then make the rest. They have a complete sub soiler or just the ripper. Here's a link.
