So about a year ago I built a ripper / sub soil tool out of a box blade ripper.

Very similar to the one that just recently came out from heavyhitch.com

Works VERY well grubbing out stumps etc of the brush and standing dead wood I have to work with here.
The other day I ground a "root cutter" section on the shank. It seems to help a lot.....

When you are doing this kind of work, roots emit a snap, crackle, pop noise that is unmistakeable.
With this sharper section I have cut up to 2 1/2" diameter roots as easily as 1" diameter.
It isn't designed to cut meat, so it doesn't look like much, but has helped a lot.

This will be my first attempt to attach a picture........ Wish me luck......

My first thought was to add a 1/4 x 1" or so strip of stock to the front edge of the shank and sharpen it.

Didn't get around to that. But can still do that another day.

Keep us posted with results of your builds and working experience........
