Rotating ripper bar for Agri-fab box blade

The AF box blade is pretty much a toy unless you are able to shore it up for use. I welded 2"x1/4" angle iron to the top of mine after the tubing collapsed. I welded tiller tines to the factory ripper bar and promptly taco'ed it on tree roots. So I decided to make a bar with adjustable depth tines that could be rotated out of the way when not being used.

I had some 2" OD pipe for the main bar, 1.5" OD pipe for the main pipe to spin on. 3/4" ID pipe for the tine holders and 5/8" nuts welded on them to lock the ripper tines. My Brinly cultivator has 3/4" shank tines so I can use them on the ripper bar. Used the middle buster today to dig a trench for my cable.

1 1/8" hole sawed the pipe to put the tine holders in the pipe and welded 5/8" nuts on them to lock the tines. Plenty of welding on this dude.

I still need to cut my ripper tines to length and I need to rework my hitch to lift higher. My only limitation was not being able to get the box blade off the ground high enough to set the tines deep. This really made the ripper a beast.
