New | Rippers

Rippers are used to break up hard soil and ice during ground preparation. They are perfectly suited for pipeline and trenching work.


Cat excavator rippers offer a cost-effective alternative to blasting. In quarry production work, they offer a lower cost per ton, better product quality and less environmental impact than explosive excavation. They are the ideal tool for land clearing or site preparation in rock, quarry work and similar high-impact digging applications. Take productivity to the next level with a Cat Rip & Load package. A quick coupler switches you rapidly between the ripper, and an Extreme Duty Rock bucket. Pull the rock from the ground and load it with the same machine.
