ShearForce Equipment unveiled its redesigned lineup of Xcentric rippers with its new Mining Series.

The Mining Series was reinforced with a remodeled working platform, which delivers higher energy impact force to the work tool with a lower frequency, the company says. Larger and heavier gears are designed to allow for equal weight distribution side to side and direct impact energy vertically, according to the company.

Additionally, the lower pivot arm and housing is reinforced to limit wear where the ripper typically encounters material, and the ripper arm was remodeled and reinforced. The XR Mining Series also has a narrower body profile, making it ideal for operating in confined areas, the company says.

The new Xcentric Ripper Mining Series is specifically designed for frequent use where the highest production values are required, the company adds, as well assisting continuous work shifts with reliability and operator comfort.

Through its impact vibration accumulation technology, the hydraulic ripper attachment works with the natural rigidity of the rock, and the vibrations produced shake the material to deepen cracks for easier breakup.
