360 Bullet

360 BULLET OVERVIEW

 

Most rippers do a good job of leaving the surface smooth and level. But what about the soil underneath? With 360 BULLET, you can fracture the complete soil profile, eliminating subsurface berms left by other ripper points for better root penetration and access to nutrients.

KEY FEATURES

  • Fractures full soil profile
  • Better root penetration
  • Similar horsepower and fuel use
  • Similar wear

IMPROVED ACCESS TO SOIL NUTRIENTS

Traditional ripper points can leave 8-inch to 10-inch berms of tight, collapsed soil below the surface. When roots hit these, they funnel to the bottom of the trench, which is closed by the smear left behind by the ripper point. 360 BULLET fractures the full soil profile, giving roots a smooth transition to the subsoil’s moisture reserves.

DESIGNED TO DO MORE

The unique design of 360 BULLET creates mini-earthquakes that fracture more of the soil profile. This improves root penetration and access to nutrients, laying the ground for a better harvest.

  • Wide wings lift and fracture the complete soil profile
  • Streamlined shape sends shockwaves across the full width of the ripper
  • Soil-on-soil turbulence eliminates subsoil berms
  • Carbidic Austempered Ductile Iron (CADI) adds the strength and wear resistance to withstand extreme conditions

PRECISION AND EFFICIENCY

Moving more soil doesn’t mean using more horsepower or fuel. In a series of half-acre trials, 360 BULLET fractured the entire soil profile without using significantly more horsepower or fuel — and only taking 1.5% longer to finish while still maintaining a pulling speed equal to traditional ripper points.
