German term or phrase: Tiefenlockerer
Does anyone know what the English road working machine name for this is, please? It is used to describe a "Ripper" machine. I get the impression that it is a something that "bites" down deeply into the old surface in order to break it up and make it easier to clear away.
Sorry, there is absilutely no context, it is simply in a list, including things like "Grubber" and "Crusher".,
