How to tell the difference between the different shank types

This workflow will help you identify the different Agrowplow shank models

Agrowplow deep rippers have used many different shank models over the years. Use this taxonomy to quickly tell the difference between these shank models. It is based on the physical characteristics of each shank, so you don't need to know the wear parts used for the shank or the kind of assembly or toolbar it came from. 

Note that this guide only covers the shanks themselves; it does not differentiate between rigid, hydraulic, or spring-jump models.
