We haven't yet decided what to do with our assets. Please don't hesitate to get in touch for any reason: 01609 773607 or 07788 725871 or 01325 314634 or johnparlour07@gmail.com                   This website is due to close around mid Jan 21 however we have an annex to this site which will continue for now, please click here to view, or make a note of this URL: https://johnparlour.wixsite.com/mysite

Ground Engaging Metal,

Plough Parts.

We supply the full range of ground engaging parts, plough metal, tungsten carbide, chromium carbide, bucket cutting edges etc. etc.

We know numerous, very knowledgeable, people within the industry. We can get parts sent direct to you quickly and we don't charge for advice.

Some materials will last many times longer than others so we need to get the right stuff for the job. Hiring out cultivation equipment is an excellent way to test various options so we do a lot of experimentation in order to find out what's best.

Tungsten Carbide is I believe, second only to diamond for its hardness, but even this has its limitations, it's brittle and expensive and can often be out performed by Chromium Carbide.  

Using the below materials on our hire tackle, saves a substantial amount of money, a saving that can be passed on to the customer.

Scroll down for Ferobide and Chromium Carbide prices.


In the right conditions, tungsten carbide is an exceptional material. Almost rivalling diamond in its hardness, it can last a very long time when it’s attached to earth wearing parts. Some people say "tungsten carbide can't  be welded" but not everyone agrees, see Ferobide below. Cracking may occur due to expansion and contraction however. A range of tungsten products are available from us, and we design and produce custom parts based on your requirements. Please get in touch for further details.
