STEEL PRICES RISE:
The carbon steel market is poised to grow by 699.35 MT during 2020-2024 progressing at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period." (Source: Business Wire)
This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Tractor Basics 300 Series Smooth Top Rotary Cutter 3-Point Attachment
The 300 Series Smooth Top Rotary Cutter by Tractor Basics are designed for tractors and are used for medium to heavy duty applications such as weeds, grass, and brush up to 2" diameter. This smooth top cutter uses a single spindle with two free swinging blades which helps reduce the shock of impact when a stationary object is contacted.
Available in 60" and 72" width and designed to work with 32 to 90 horsepower tractors. The standard equipment includes driveline and clutch shields for added safety. All sizes are designed with a slip clutch that allows the PTO shaft to continue to turn without breaking any parts if something was hit.
Optional rubber belting or safety chains are available for purchase to help increase your safety while using the attachment. The safety chains are more durable than rubber belting, allowing more, taller material to flow into the cutter better than the belting that sometimes tends to bend the taller growth over the attachment. If you need help deciding between which deflector is the better option for you, feel free to contact us.
