Austempered Sickle Sections

MacDon Performance Parts Sickle Sections undergo a unique heat treatment process known as Austempering, which produces a tougher and more impact resistant structure for improved harvesting performance!

  • Austempered heat treatment involves through-hardening the entire section, versus competitors only heat-treating the cutting portion
  • Available in either Fine (14 serrations per inch), Coarse (9 serrations per inch), or Ultra-Coarse (4 serrations per inch) options.
  • Self-sharpen as they wear, meaning your sickle sections will continue to stay sharp throughout the section life
  • Guaranteed hole spacing means your replacement sickle section will fit your MacDon perfectly every time

Austempered Sickle Section Options:

  • Ultra-coarse sections are recommended for thicker stemmed crops and adverse soybean conditions.
  • Coarse sections are recommended for cereals, canola, pulses and soybeans.
  • Fine sections are recommended for use in forage, grasses and thin stemmed crops like flax and lentils.
