Earth Shaker scales nice into lategame. Like Lotus said, Sand King is really nice aswell. But Tinker isn't that good because in early he doesn't got any disable. But don't really know if you mean assist ganking or solo..

If you think tinker is a good ganker, well he also kicks butt late game. His nukes may not be as powerful, but with items he becomes one of the most ridiculous heroes. I think VS, ES, SK, batrider, all are contenders. Sven too I guess. Anyone who has a decent stun early on, then people that just do lots of damage like tinker and bat. Or slow lots.
I think much more important than hero is player. There are loads of heroes that can easily gank and first blood, but you need to play them right. There are tiers of gankers I guess, but I doubt one is really the best, especially in "any" game.

As always when it comes to questions about somone/somewhat being the best...its a highly situational question. Depends on your and the enemies lineup.

Zeus can do well. Assisting I mean. Spectre can do well too, a bit later in the game though. Solo mid storm can rofl gank well. Potm is incredible, if arrow is placed well. And many more

OT: Venge is the steriotypical "ganker/roamer" hero, as she isn't item dependant but has a reliable, spammable, stun.

IMO, viper, sven and mirana could gank well. The 3 can become semi-carries late game.

A potm with 100% AA with frequent shots is more or less the top dog.

Sven/Vs/Es/SK/Tiny are also very good early

All in all very much heroes are great at ganking. They just need to fit to the team and it always depend on the enemy heroes.

Mirana and Venge are great. However with Mirana, if you miss the arrow there is a lot greater chance for the gank to fail.

Once Visage hits six he is supposed to roam and cause as much havoc as possible. He is a damn near unstoppable ganker as his early burst damage is ridiculous. Without an escape mech, i.e. blink or ww, any hero will have a hard time escaping him.

i would say rexxar is best ganker hero with stun, slow, moving ward(hawk) and a 1300 cast range 360dmg nuke, and he is still viable late game due to his slight tankiness, his ult and his AS aura

i find it hard to fail a gank with shadow fiend. 900 damage is too brutal for just about any hero and his free sacred relic is no laughing matter either. he has no stun but a single allys stun seals the deal, not that he needs a stun helper in the early game

Dragon Knight is the best ganker. Longest early stun, high base dmg. If you level him enough, has poison, and a fire nuke burst dmg. Has high armor to tower dive, and is a str hero.

I don't really think of SandKing as a ganker. I think of his as teamfight hero and pusher. When I think of Ganking Heroes, Pudge and Clock are at the top of my list

It's either Visage, Beastmaster or Nerubian Assassin (Come on, he is not as imba as he used to be, but he is still one of the most fearsome fucking instagibbers in the game, paired with gay rune control)

venge no contest
-start from level 1 gank
-high damage stun
-3 ganking skills
-item independent

absolutely no contest. venge beats previous mentioned (sk na tide es) because she has 2 ganking skills, which have long range and is reliable, and beats tinker ( 2 ganking skills) because she can start from level 1.

I think Akasha, Viper and Pudge can gank very well. Akasha is very strong mid game, Viper can orbwalk easily and Pudge can use his Meat Hook+Rot+Dismember combo.
