The KUHN Krause 4830 in-line ripper is the ideal tool to fight soil compaction, one of the leading causes of yield reduction. With working depths of 8” to 16”, the 4830 provides maximum soil fracturing, while allowing crop residue to remain undisturbed on the surface. This allows for greater root development and water infiltration into the soil, and effectively reduces runoff and soil erosion. KUHN Krause 4830 in-line rippers are available in 4- to 7-shank rigid models and 6- to 9-shank flat folding models, with shank spacing choices of 30”, 36”, 38” or 40”. The unique 180-degree, flat-fold configuration makes transport and storage more convenient. The 4830 can be equipped with spring reset shanks or rigid, shear-bolt protected shanks for soils where rock is not a concern. There are a variety of points available depending on your agronomic needs.

3-Point Hitch

Designed for deep tillage with strength and durability in mind. This Category III, 3-point hitch is integrated into a two-bar frame design with main members of heavy-duty, 6”x6” structural steel tubing.

Drawbar Pull-Hitch

The optional drawbar pull-hitch lets you match tractors, not equipped with 3-point hitches, to the 4830 in-line ripper. Equipped with four 11L x 15”, 8-ply tires, the drawbar hitch provides excellent field flotation and depth control.

    “Our 4830 in-line ripper is the perfect tool to help break up any compaction we have. It has varying points and wings on it that help obtain the optimal soil surface. This ripper does minimal disturbance on the top of the soil, but yet it shatters and breaks up any compaction we have below the surface from about 7 to 10 inches below the ground.”
