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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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.

Bradco 4 Foot Skid Steer Trencher
The Bradco 4 Foot Trencher for skid steers is ideal for constructing industrial size trenches with ease and quickness. When it comes to trenching, most operators just need a skid steer attachment that will get the job done and last for a long time. At Skid Steer Solutions, we hear you and we have taken most of the guesswork out of finding the right attachment for you.
The Bradco 4’ Trencher fits the bill. Bradco has been a trusted name for years now and we are proud to offer their trenchers to our customers. We actually carry two different sizes of this trencher: this 4-footer and a 3-footer.
Chain and Teeth Assembly
General Purpose: generally good, normal digging conditions. Light to moderately compacted soils with generally balanced sand and loam content. Also works well in soils with some loose gravel. *In soils with higher clay content, recommend to remove up to 50% of teeth to prevent sticking and gumming.
Compacted Soil: compacted soils, lightly frozen ground, baked hard clay, shale, and rocky soils. Shark teeth provide a cutting action while cup teeth remove debris from the trench
Rock & Frost: frozen ground, highly compacted soils, and soils with high rock content. Very aggressive in frozen and rocky conditions, but not as productive in normal digging conditions.
