Lemken making parts last longer

Written by 

Wearing parts for soil engaging implements are a hefty cost for any farmer or contractor, so selection should be based on factors such as prevailing conditions and areas to be covered.

German manufacturer Lemken has recently announced the division of its tillage wear parts into two ranges: Dural for a long service life and DuraMaxx for long service life particularly in abrasive conditions. 

Utilising its comprehensive knowledge gained from in-house production -- including heat treatment -- the German company says it consistently designs and produces high-quality replacement parts. 

From the mid-1980s this saw the introduction of Dural plough bodies, followed in the early 2000s by DuraMaxx bodies made from specially hardened steel, increasing service life by up to 150%. 

Now it also offers high wear-resistant parts for stubble cultivation, including a full range of carbide parts to supplement existing standard steel and hard-faced items. The company now also offers discs made from high-temper steel that gives 20% longer service life.
