There are multiple rippers that can be used on the job site—those being the single shank and multi-ripper shank variations. To determine which is suitable for your equipment, you will need to analyze what you will be using the shanks for. The main difference between these two types of rippers is self-explanatory. The single shank is what it sounds like—a single long blade used for more targeted ripping. If you need pre-production ripping of deeper soil to create an ideal starting point for your construction job, then a single shank is ideal.
On the other hand, multi-ripper shanks are more suited for variable conditions where not as much development ripping is needed. Typically, it is suited for conditions that are not as hard or where depth is not as critical. The multi-ripper is particularly good for pre-ripping to make the job site easier for other equipment to operate on.
