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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 Standard Mounting Frame
The Eterra Auger Drive 2500/3500/4500 Standard Mounting Frame (The Standard Mount) is designed to be used with Eterra Augers and to mount on the Eterrra BP-02 two-rail plate. This standard mount is great for all auger and earth drilling purposes. It is strong and it is a complete bottom-up design with the added benefit of having a lot of accessories to choose from. Try Eterra Augers, you will see the difference in the quality and service provided.
If you are looking to use a cement mixer on your Eterra Skid Steer Auger, then you will need the Eterra Flip Hitch. The difference between this standard mount and Eterra's Flip Hitch is that it has a top mount and a bottom swivel plate that allow the auger frame and drive to be rotated while the auger drive itself is held sturdily by the top mount piece.
If you decide to buy the Eterra Standard Mount 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 warranty and render the frame non-returnable.
