    How much HP for JD ripper?

    At auction today is a JD 900 12' 5 shank V ripper. How much HP would this take to pull? Rippers are bolted on so I could remove some if needed. I would also most likely cut to down from 12' to around 8'

    Picture is from net a of a 4 shank ripper

    One of those stopped my nephew's 4630,,,,
    there was 2K pounds of front end weights on the tractor.

    The field was a long-unused pasture.

    I think it depends on how deep the shanks go.

    I have seen them with gauge wheels,,, to stop them from going too deep.

    It would have to be cheap. Online auction, 6 hours to go, at $160 now plus 13% buyer premium and 6% sales tax.
    And a 150 mile round trip with the track and trailer to get it.

    Ha-Ha.... You could pull all five shanks about 6-8 inches deep. Stick all 5 shanks 16-18 inches in the ground like they should be and you will probably need a 175 PTO HP tractor with duals and fwa.

    Three shanks you could run maybe a foot deep maximum.

    For a ripper like that to pull at full depth in unworked soil, you need about 25-30HP per shank and lots of weight for traction!
