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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Promac Double Carbide Mulching Teeth 16 Set
The Carbide Teeth hold up much longer (up to 500 hrs vs. 40-100 hrs for chipper teeth), especially in rocky conditions, but do not cut as efficiently and cannot be sharpened. Since rocks are more likely to come in contact with the outside edges of the drum, we recommend purchasing this carbide teeth kit for the outside 4 rows of the drum (16 teeth), and leaving the more efficient chipper teeth in the center, directly in front of the operator. This configuration allows for selective use of the chipper teeth (use the center of the drum to mulch a larger tree).
