Titan makes a rather nifty ripper / subsoiler that attaches to a 3 point mounted receiver. I thought one would be handy so I ordered one …
When it arrived, I opened the box, and it looked quite capable of doing the job it was intended for.
The problem I ran into was when I went to attach the Ripper to my receiver hitch … I find the pin holes do not line up with the holes in a standard receiver tube.*
*(Not just my hitch receiver but in four others I tested) … Not even close … :dunno:

I promptly emailed customer service, and explained the problem. The person I talked to seemed to understand my dilemma, and offered to send a replacement …
free of charge …
Well … I'm ok with that, thinking the replacement would have the hole drilled in the proper location … WRONG!
It arrived looking exactly the same as the first Ripper …

* Evidently the person I chatted with at Titan didn't know 'ALL ?' their Rippers had the mounting holes in the wrong locations *… :think:
*(I googled "Titan Ripper Reviews" and find this problem was a common occurrence)

Rather than deal with Titan again, I went ahead and modified one of the Rippers by moving the pin hole over far enough to match the hole in the receiver, I also welded a second steel tube inside to strengthen the mounting tube.
Problem solved, and the Ripper does work very well, I might add ... I used it to pull up roots from around a stump .... :good2:

I now have TWO Rippers, and only need one …
SO ...
I would like to offer the spare Ripper either modified, or unmodified if someone wants to do their own "hole fix"

Anyone interested p.m. me.

The 1025 pulled it easily with the 3 point all the way down ... I didn’t actually measure it, but I’d say 12” - 14”

Thank you. I am looking for something similar that will go at least 18" deep.

This ripper may go that deep. It depends on how low your three point arms will go. I have my arms set up with shortened lift links so I can lift some of my other implements higher for more ground clearance. But doing this makes it so the arms don’t go as low as stock lift links would allow.
