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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Eterra Auger Drive Flip Hitch
The Eterra Flip Hitch is designed to be used with Eterra Augers and cement mixer bowl attachment. Although experienced operators can utilize the Flip Hitch on its own to rotate their auger drives for horizontal drilling, it is not designed for this and any failure while doing so would not be covered by warranty. If you are looking to use a cement mixer on your Eterra Skid Steer Auger, then this Flip Hitch is what will make it possible. This hitch is designed so that you can lock your auger swivel in place then rotate it up to 45 degrees for upward motion. In this position, your cement mixer can rotate safely and drill horizontally or mix your concrete.
For skid steer operators who install fences, this is your dream component. With one single skid steer attachment, you can now dig your hole, place your posts and fill them with concrete. The value of this Flip Hitch saves you time, money and manual labor.
The Eterra Flip Hitch is designed to be used with Eterra augers and cement mixer bowl as well as to mount directly to Eterra twin rail mounts. If you decide to buy one for a non-Eterra auger, you may have to make modifications for it to fit properly and function correctly. Any modifications to the original design will automatically void any Skid Steer Solutions warranty and render the item non-returnable.
