Editor’s Note: Farm equipment manufacturers and dealers alike have recently cited the difficulty in metal-cast component supply as a major influencer of extended lead-times for farm equipment deliveries. As a result, Ag Equipment Intelligence recently secured a list of suppliers of austempered ductile iron (ADI) casting sources and published it in the February 2023 edition under its monthly “AEI Lists” department.
