Weld-On Wear Strips Lengthen Tillage Tool Life
A Bourgault Tillage Tool product is cutting the frequency of replacing metal on cultivator sweeps, harrow tines, shanks and soil scrapers.
    Max Life heat-applied wear strips containing chunks of tungsten carbide can be spread evenly across the face of soil-engaging components to add length of life.
    “Max Life quadruples the working life of wearing metal,” says a company advertorial. “It creates the toughest, most economical, longest lasting tools available. It’s cost-effective, and years of rigorous testing shows the useful life of wear parts extended many times over depending on the application.”
    The tungsten carbide chunks come in various sizes from 3/8 to 9/16 in. in diameter and are divided into strips to suit intended widths.
    According to Ian Clayton-Bailey of Bourgault’s Canadian subsidiary, these deposits are extremely tough and won’t chip or flake when subjected to high impacts.
    The Max Life strips can be heated, tack welded, and bent by hammer onto clean surfaces to protect curved metals from thinning or washing wear. They’re well suited for seed drills, cultivators, plows, manure spreaders, buckets, mowers, scrapers and augers.
    Interested customers are encouraged to consult the Bourgault Tillage Tools website for dealerships, pricing and information.
