4835 In-Line Ripper
The KUHN Krause 4835 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 4835 provides aggressive soil fracturing, while retaining valuable crop residue on the field surface. This allows for greater root development and water infiltration into the soil, and effectively reduces runoff and soil erosion. KUHN Krause 4835 in-line rippers are available in folding 8, 9 or 11-shank models. 8 shank spacing choices include 36”, 38” and 40”, while 9 and 11-shank folding models offer 30” spacing. The unique horizontal fold configuration makes transport and storage more convenient.
Shanks & Coulters
The 4835 can be equipped with spring reset shanks or rigid, shear-bolt protected shanks for soils where rock is not a concern. A variety of points are available depending on your agronomic needs. Heavy- duty, 22-inch diameter x 1/4″ thick coulters are standard on each row of all 4835 in-line rippers. These rugged coulters feature 450 pounds of down pressure to slice through the toughest crop residues. Coulter hubcaps are secured with metal retainers to ensure bearing protection.
Designed for deep tillage with strength and durability in mind. This Category IV, 3-point hitch is integrated into a two-bar frame design with main members of heavy-duty, 6”x6” structural steel tubing. The optional drawbar pull-hitch lets you match tractors, not equipped with 3-point hitches, to the 4835 in-line ripper. The drawbar pull-hitch includes (4) 280/70 R15 tires on the rear lift and (2) 280/70 R15 front mounted gauge wheel tires.
