Made of Tufmetal, a new high chrome iron, the strips are 9 in. long and vary in width from 1 to 2-3/8 in. Each Shin Guard strip is scored horizontally in 1 in. increments. "When installing each strip, you position it, then pound it with a hammer so it bends where scored to conform exactly to the configuration of the shank. You then weld each strip in place," explains Mike Justice, sales manager. He notes that when ordering, you select Shin Guards strips about ¢ in. wider than width of the shanks on your particular make and model ripper. The overlap provides a lip on each side to hide the backside weld, explains Justice.
Shin Guard prices vary, depending on width. Suggested retail for the 9 in. strips in the 1? width, for example, is $6 each. Justice notes that long-wearing Tufmetal caps are also available for welding onto ripper shank points. Dealer inquiries welcome.
