Parts Animal is a new online parts tool that claims to solve the problems of knowing where to go to track down a particular part. “It combines stock information from multiple sources and puts it at an individual farmer or dealer’s fingertips.” says Parts Animal spokesman Hamish Barclay.

The company already operates in New Zealand and Australia, but is now being launched in the UK. “It’s as simple as entering the part number or description to find out who has that particular part,” he says.

The service is mainly aimed at the trade, but for farmers and others looking for the odd part, Parts Animal also offers a Wanted Board. “This is a place where anyone can place requests for parts they need. Members monitor the board regularly and will contact you directly if they can supply the part.”
