How Does the Iron Wing Sales Parts Search Work?

How does the Iron Wing Sales Parts Search work?

With our extensive parts inventory, we are often asked…How do I search for a part on your website?

The best way to search is by Part Number.  You can do this in the Search Box at the top of each page -OR- you can click on the Products Tab and it will take you to the Product Search Fields  The parts search performs a ‘Stripped’ part search. What that means is that any special characters are stripped out of the user entered part number during the search and then our database is searched on a stripped part number field and the description. So, if you search for part number 123-45, it searches a stripped part number field in our database for part number 12345. This helps increase your ability to find parts, especially in cases where the special characters are not known or are possibly placed in the wrong sequence when searching.  The part search also performs a “Contains” search. What that means is if you search for part number 12345, results with these characters in the part or description will be returned as well.

Users are also able to search and filter by price range, manufacturer, description, or category but this may take more time. The best way to search by description is with a very limited description.  For Example: if the search is for a Haldex Parking Brake Trailer Manifold Dash Valve, then the user would use “valve”.  The search could then be narrowed down by manufacturer.  Start with the broadest term and funnel the search down to more specific descriptions and manufacturers.  You can also choose the Manufacturer/Brand and then enter “valve” in the description.  The search will show you the filters that have been applied with Red Lettering.  Click New Search when you are ready to apply different filters or start a new search.

We are currently categorizing all the parts on our website, so the categories are a work in progress.  This is a slow and tedious process, but every week you will see more parts categorized primarily in Agricultural & Foresty Parts, Car & Truck Parts, Forklift & Lift Truck PartsHeavy Duty Truck Parts, Heavy Equipment Parts, Industrial & MRO Parts, and Industrial Electrical Parts.   Please note: Some parts are in multiple categories.

If you don’t see the part in, then search by Part Number.
