Potato harvester made of Hardox® wear steel helps farmers harvest success
February 28, 2022 6 min read
When Turkish agricultural machinery manufacturer Öz-Eliş wanted to improve the durability and service life of its new 4-row potato harvester, it turned to hard and tough Hardox® wear steel. The result? Machine parts with less deformation, fewer cracks and improved resistance to abrasion and wear – all using a thinner gauge of steel.
Hardox® wear steel is no stranger to the farm. It is highly resistant to extreme wear and abrasion and is through-hardened, meaning that the steel is hard from its outer layer right down to the core. This means that it can take a real beating in abrasive conditions, in fields filled with soil, sand and stones. As with Turkish manufacturer Öz-Eliş other companies have experienced success with Hardox® wear steel, in applications ranging from soil preparation, planting, harvesting and crop processing to bulk transport.
