Ripper tips are maybe two inches wide, maybe a bit more, and there are five of them. Lifting and heaving in the low black areas is my goal. This soil is so darned tight it has to be fractured completely between the shanks. Making slots won't do me much good, except for improving drainage down into the tile in really compacted low areas. When I look back at the ripper the soil is lifting and then dropping between the shanks. In our soil in the low black areas the roots will go down to the plow pan and then go sideways because they can't burrow down any farther.
Like I said, it was bent when I bought the tractor so I don't know how it happened. Maybe one of the bottom links popped out and the implement twisted sideways? My first inclination was to just bite the bullet and get a new one and I just might go that way yet. Jim
