      Re: General Root Ripper

      I have one but I don't ever recall using it.
      I feel more comfortable cutting rather then ripping the roots.
      Even with a root saw the roots are being somewhat ripped though.

        That looks like something that fell off my '62 Plymouth Valiant S/G (shallow grave)

          I keep one in the van and use it on roots to get them back through bad spots. They work good for that but I never use it for a starting head.

            Why is that? Is too aggressive? What machine/cable setup do you use it on?

              I use mine on a 7500 with inner core 3/4" cables. I always use a smaller arrow on the first pass to get the water going and cut some of the stoppage out before I go in with a bigger head I don't know how other drillers get away with using a bigger head on the first pass ? the roots around here will hang you up if you try with a big head for the first pass even the 1500 or the 60 would get hung. The root riper can wad up a big ball of roots and get you stuck in a tight place. I got my first Root riper with a set of cutters for a roder
