Flexible Harrows have shown over the last 120 years how versatile a product they are and how important they are not only in the farming industry but landscaping, sports/turf and equestrian applications and today they can be used behind tractors, ATV's, pickups, ride on mowers and the horse.

Being customer focused and adaptable our products have evolved to reflect the changing conditions and requirements of the market resulting in a range to suit all your harrowing needs. In 2012 William Hackett Chain Products Ltd acquired the Parmiter range of harrows and together they have been supplying the US market for over 50 years.

William Hackett Ltd was established in 1892 principally to manufacture grass harrows for the farming industry under the direction of Daniel Hackett, who initially produced the tines on an open hearth fire.

The original works were located in Cherry Orchard in the West Midlands, UK, until 1969 when the harrow production and the chain works were consolidated on the current site in Maypole Fields, West Midlands, UK. Investment in technology and continuous development of manufacturing techniques have been a company policy from the early 1900's until today when state of the art computer control systems are used.

In order to remain competitive in the world market we have invested in more efficient machinery and now operate CNC Robomac automatic wire bending machines to form the parts required for the production of grass harrows.

William Hackett Ltd has held a prominent position in the manufacture of grass harrows for over 100 years. The skilled workforce has adapted to changes in production techniques and technologically advanced equipment enabling William Hackett to become a truly international company producing world class quality products. Today we not only sell in the UK but we export throughout the world including the United States and Australasia.

Grass harrows have shown over the last century how versatile they are in the farming industry which is why there is still a large market for this type of equipment. Our range is designed to cover all applications and today we sell to a world wide market which includes farming, small holdings, equestrian venues, sports grounds and public parks.
