    See the photos attached to see what I am describing. I have extended my backhoe to it's fullest reach and placed the dipperstick against the ground, also the bucket is in full open position. The front teeth of the bucket do not touch the ground <1/8" above. What are the advantages or disadvantages of maintaining the point location to actual bucket design?

    I understand your question, not sure I can help. My ripper is not mounted currently but I don't recall the range of motion being different from the bucket. I do use the power setting for pin placement. Perhaps that is the issue. The 90x has two pin placement options for the dipper to bucket link. When I had MIE fabricate the ripper I asked that they use the power setting dimension which is what I use on the bucket too. I gave them a technical drawing provided by Woods which gave exact dimensions of the mount so it isn't like they made it up. I won't be able to check for a week or 10 days but if it remains a question I can measure next time I have access.

    Is the "power pin" placement the widest span? I as well have two pin settings on my bucket... in the views you can see that my pins are spaced the farthest apart... I was thinking that this was the strongest digging placement but I have never seen explanation for either setting.

    I appreciate your input and do not want to "High-Jack" this thread. So I have started a new thread for my "soon to be" many questions on the design of a DIY ripper.

    Backhoe Ripper tooth design - need your advice

    Thanks

    No problem continuing your discussion here as far as I'm concerned. There is a benefit to keeping similar topics together.

    I believe that is correct. I have only used the outside, widest "power" setting on my standard 18" Woods bucket and the ripper was fabricated to those dimensions. I have also never seen an explanation but it seems reasonable to think that if one is the power setting that would be the setting with the greatest leverage while the other setting might well be faster or be better for loading a truck etc so more useful for simply moving piles of sand or something like that.
