The scarifier, made of up to 11 shanks with teeth, is used to break up hard ground or material to a regulated depth
to make it ready to grade. The number of shanks/teeth used depends on the consistency of the material being bro-
The center five shanks (with teeth) may be removed to allow scarifier assembly to be raised to gain additional
ground clearance when necessary. The remaining shanks can be stowed upside down in the scarifier frame, if
additional clearance is required. Up to five removed scarifier shanks may be stored in the scarifier shank stowage
rack located at the front of the machine. A strap is provided to bind shanks together to avoid loss. Stow shanks in
rack facing every other one backwards to allow stowage of up to five shanks. Refer to Scarifier Tooth and Shank
Scarifier digging angle can be adjusted to accommodate different needs. Notify Field Level Maintenance if scarifier
digging angle adjustment is required.
