An excavator with a powerful Multi-Ripper® rock ripper bucket digging in tough Austin Texas limestone.

That is probably one of the most metal excavator shovels I've ever seen

We use MTG KingMet style teeth and shanks. We tested other brands of teeth and they would break. These teeth see 8.5 times the force of a standard 5 tooth bucket. The Cat style teeth with the cross pin, for example, the adapter would break through the pin hole. We have had no problems since we switched to MTG KingMet several years ago.

I wonder how well those shanks hold up.

@FUCKINROCKIT Hi, many thanks for the info! It has been a while since I was last here, so please forgive me! The bucket certain works though, with all the force centred on each tooth doing the work rather than across the whole bucket? Take care and happy Xmas! mrbluenun

Interesting to see the creation of something between a ripper and a bucket. Great idea! mrbluenun

This bucket was at a site north of highway 183 and west of MOPAC. It is owned by Lewis Contractors, Inc.

That particular bucket can hold between 2.5 and 3 cubic yards of rock.
