German manufacturer Lemken has announced it will offer two ranges aimed at providing farmers with a greater selection of tillage wear parts.
In a release, the company said wear parts are a significant economic factor for any farmer and the newly realigned Dural and DuraMaxx ranges would provide more choice for its customers.
Dural will aim for the long service life market, while the DuraMaxx targets the harder working extra-long service life market.
"Some 10 years ago, the Dural bodies were followed up by the introduction of DuraMaxx bodies made from specially hardened steel, increasing service life by 150 per cent," Lemken said. .
"Lemken has since expanded its portfolio of high wear-resistant parts to cover the area of stubble cultivation.
"The range of wear parts for the Lemken Karat cultivator, for example, now includes a full range of carbide parts to supplement the existing standard steel and hard-faced shares.
"Also, in addition to the proven standard specification of discs offered for the Rubin compact disc harrow, Lemken now offer discs made from highly- tempered steel, providing 20pc longer service life."
The company said as Lemken's range of high-performing wear parts is continuously broadened to cover all other equipment types, it would now sells those products under the DuraMaxx brand and has adopted the Dural brand for its durable standard- spec part offering.
