    I would think that is used as a ripper shank.

    Default Next bucket job

    It's used to scrape on the walls. Or as oldtimer said a ripper shank they use them here in Las Vegas on the excavators when digging basements.

    I had one just a touch bigger than that last winter, It was a 5yd bucket, I just finished rebilding the teeth on a 6'-6" tall grapple, I used AR400 plate after I did the repairs verses putting hard surface rod.

    The funny thing is that he said thats his small grapple, The tag on it says it weighs 5,600 lbs.

    I too am wondering what the fin on the back is for.

    I can't imagine why you would need a ripper on a machine like this. Could be for scraping walls? Maybe it was put on for a special job & never removed? Maybe it is a ripper but I would think it would be difficult to curl in rocky ground.

    Looks like a fun job. You are going to burn a lot of wire.

    Melted metal, Best idea Ive heard yet.

    I agree curling the bucket in rocky groung might be a nuissance.

    Default not a ripper

    That is not a ripper. Bet it is used to crush concrete to fit in the crusher. Or it is for breaking concrete.
