Jr1,
Hereís a couple of photo of the southwest ripper. Iím sure itís a Southwest. All the features are the same and I missed the push block on the rear, that was holding me back on what I figured it was till now, it was a little hard to see. All the other features seem to match up. If you will post the overall length I can come up with the model number and what size tractor it was built for, also if you can find a SN i may be able to help on that as well, i have some SN's but they are not of the early pieces of equipment.

Sorry about any confusing

I don't see how LeTourneau didn't pitch a fit about patent infringement on these models. They musta been built after the patent expired??

Thanks for you help.Kelly.I will measure it tomorrow for you. I wonder how the Southwest ripper performed compared to the letourneau or other competitors of its time?
