    Default BIg Ox Rollover Box Scraper

    Hi Guys:
    I am new to the forum, and just bought a 72 inch Big Ox Rollover Box Scraper. Three ripper shanks are missing tips, and have been quite worn. It looks like I have to pull a long rod that secures all the ripper shanks, but if I do that is it going to be a bear to get the rod back in? I was wondering if anyone might have a parts diagram and/or owner's manual for this BB, as I really don't know much about it. The nameplate shows it made by Southeastern Manufacturing Co., which I understand was bought by Modern Equipment/Dragon Products. I did a fairly extensive internet search but could not find documentation for this scraper. Thanks.

    Pull the rod, it isn't that hard to get it back in. I have a couple of these except mine are Gannon's.

    As long as you have the rippers pointed up, or so that their notches are up, it's not that hard to get the rod back through.

    I have a Gannon Earthcavator RO-Box Blade and we pulled all ours out to put on rust inhibitor and repaint the ripper shafts/bars.

    They went back pretty easily even with the new layers of paint.

    The notches kinda guide it through.

    Thanks! I had fears of pulling that rod and ending up with a situation that only an octopus could handle!

    Do either of you know if the ripper shanks for your Gannon are the same as for the Big Ox? Three are missing tips, and they are worn a lot, so they should be replaced.

    BTW, I grew up just north of Rome, NY, so that would be "see the BIG lake-look just right of it!"

    Bob, I don't know for a fact, but I think that they would be, being the same design and all. I don't think that you want to get Gannon rippers tough, or maybe I should say that I doubt that you want to pay for Gannon ripper shanks. I believe that they are $60 each + you still have to purchase the teeth to go on them. They ARE NOT CHEAP. I think that you can get some aftermarket ones for around $30 each and they come with the teeth already crimped on them.

    Good luck with that search.

    I'd say that the gannon shanks are worth the extra $$. A buddy has a lower end box with the lower end ripper shanks. His bend. The Gannon ones in mine don't. It's worth it to me.

    The Gannon ones ARE awesome, but it wouldn't hurt to try the aftermarket brands.

    They're not the same as going to a cheaper box blade, where the ripper shanks may not be as well supported.

    Try agri-supply, belarus, messners, ebay, and TSC, but ABICR, TSC doesn't carry notched shanks, so that mayn't be helpful.

    Best of luck,
    Thomas
