Independently-adjustable shanks offering three positions each allow dozer operators to, as needed, shorten or lengthen the shanks on the DR3 "triple" ripper from Nye Manufacturing. The three-inch-thick steel shanks can be angled past the vertical in either direction, providing for the optimum ripping angle. Built entirely from extra-thick 44W steel, the DR3 ripper features a fully-enclosed box design engineered for strength. The eyes penetrate into the box section, allowing greater resistance to twisting loads. Coming with the customer’s choice of teeth and shank protectors, the DR3 is the newest addition to Nye’s growing family of attachments for dozers.
