Hey everyone, happy Memorial Day-

So, I stumbled upon this set of rippers only 30 miles from my house, in totally amazing condition, and for a killer price.

Problem is, they are off a 550, and I have 350C :(

Now, if I was gonna rip a lot of rocky manure, this might be too much stress and wear on my final drives. However...I need them for some gummy clay mix dirt, and these big fat shanks would work great for that. Plus, my 9300 backhoe attachment weighs in at 4500lbs. So attachment weight of these isn't much of a concern. (The 3100 rippers weigh 650lbs, I'm thinking these maybe 900?)

Anyways, obviously this doesn't mate up to the hook & hole connection points on the back of the 350/450's.

Any input or advice on fabbing up the connection brackets I'd need to make, to be able to mount it?

Any other potential issues with using the 550 rippers?

Anyone ever mate parts from the 550 and 450 platforms?

Thanks for reading.

the 450 ripper mounts to the same bracket as the 9300 hoe not to the tractor itself. You may be able to adapt the 550 ripper to fit. If the spacing of the lift cylinders match the spacing of the 9300 mounting bracket it should not be a real big job.
