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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Diggalign Auger Alignment System (Inclinometer)
The Diggalign Inclinometer was developed for contractors where drilling accuracy is key. Ideal for drilling, screw piling & core barrelling applications. Designed to show the operator when the top of the pylon/pile/auger is off plumb, this accessory helps to maintain and ensure accuracy throughout the installation.
When the auger is plumb (vertical) the large light in the middle of the target will light up, if you are off slightly in a certain direction, those lights will indicate accordingly. For example, if the auger pilot was farther forward (away from the machine) than the drilling drive, the light above the center would light up. It is very simple and intuitive.
- Standard Definition (2 degree increments) - recommended for augers/piles under 13ft
- High Definition (0.5 degree increments) - recommended for augers/piles over 13ft
- Can be retrofitted to existing drives
- Suits all machinery with a variety of harness lengths
- Increased job site efficiency
- Can be calibrated for angles up to 20°
- Highlights misalignment forward and aft and left to right
- Dual supply cable with both 12V and 24V
