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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 Medium Duty 78" Land Plane Skid Steer Attachment
The Bradco 78" Land Plane Medium Duty for skid steers is ideal for landscape finish work, redressing gravel driveways, and filling small depressions to prep the soil for seed. Rated for Skid Steers up to 60 HP. There are two options to choose from you can purchase the Land Plane by itself or you can purchase it with the comb, scarifiers, and bolt-On cutter bars included.
Let's talk a little bit more about why someone would choose this really dynamic and useful implement, over a grader blade attachment. How many times have you had to just redress a gravel driveway and thought that a grader blade would be perfect for the task? Two hours after you start you are left with deep gouges in your roadway that will take another two hours to repair. Skid Steer land planes are cut out just for this task. It will not let you dig down into the base and destroy the road, but it will carry enough material to fill potholes and level the washboard sections in a snap.
How about field work? A land plane is ideal for landscape finish work where you need to fill small depressions and prep the soil for seed. The serrated edge does a great job of creating corduroy soil so it will more readily accept lawn seed. You can roll it back so that you can leave the surface with a flat rolled look.
The LP-78 comes with drop down scarifying teeth for the really tough jobs. You simply slide them down into place and pull backwards to tear up most materials. When you are done, you just slide them up and out of the way.
