OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS & TIPS
The K-Line Ag Thunder Ripper is a heavy-duty deep tillage tool designed for hard pan removal and soil fracturing. The key operating principle of the Thunder Ripper is that the roller controls the depth of the digging, and that the tilt cylinder (BLUE) is adjusted so front & rear tines dig at same depth. • When turning on headlands lift the Thunder Ripper out of the ground. • Shear-Pin trip style tines have a break-out at approx 5000kg, hydraulic tines have a breakout at approx 1000kg at 1000PSI. • Hydraulic tines can be adjusted to 1500kg break-out at 1450PSI, however it is not recommended to operate at this pressure at all times. Increased wear will occur on components then operating at this higher pressure. • If tines are breaking out regularly, consider slowing down, reducing ripping depth, or waiting for increase in moisture content in soil (after rain).
