Lawn & Garden Machined Parts

Lawn Machined Parts

Ashley Ward is a high-volume supplier to several OEMs in the lawn and garden industry. As a leading lawn & garden machined parts supplier & manufacturer, we supply parts to the industry keeping lawns groomed and driveways clear. With a large set of vertically integrated capabilities, Ashley Ward has what it takes to accurately and efficiently manufacture complex tiller drive shaft parts, steering shafts, and gears in a production setting.

Tiller Drive Shaft Parts

Ashley Ward manufactured a series of tiller drive shaft parts to be used within a garden tiller application. Using our advanced turning operations, we produced 20,000 drive shafts for the lawn and garden industry, successfully meeting all client specifications. We also performed spline rolling to form the cylindrical body of each component.

Upholding a precision tolerance of (±) .001 of an inch, we manufactured each tiller driveshaft to measure precisely 1.25 inches in outer diameter. Constructed from 1045 steel material, we provided each unit with a smooth, 32 RMS finish. After ensuring that we met client expectations for design and quality, we then delivered all 20,000 units to our customer's facility in Ohio. Common machined parts utilized in lawn and garden applications are drive gears, gears, steering shafts, axle shafts, spacers, collars, tubes, and many more!

Lawn & Garden Machined Parts Applications 

Lawn and garden machined tiller drive shafts play a crucial role in the efficient functioning of various types of power tillers and cultivators used for landscaping and gardening purposes. These machined components are integral to the mechanical transmission system of the tiller, enabling the transfer of power from the engine to the tines or blades that work the soil. The precision machining of tiller drive shafts by Ashley Ward ensures smooth operation and longevity, contributing to the following key applications in the lawn and garden industry:

  • Engines
