Tillage Points and High-Quality Tools
The early 1980s tungsten carbide being used heavily in the Australian mining industry. After working with the material there, some key people saw the opportunity to extend tungsten carbide into the agricultural industry. Farmer Bill Staughton, agricultural innovator Barry McFarlane, and entrepreneur Ron Ainge began experimenting with the idea of tungsten carbide protection on tillage tools.
Most tillage tools on the market today are now tungsten carbide protected. An Australian innovation in this field, it is now used around the world.
