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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Down Shifter Skid Steer Drop Height Adapter Plate
This product is the solution to a long time issue for people that add tracks to their tired skid steer loaders. The tracks have a tendency to raise the machine up to 3 inches from it's standard height. What this does is cause your bucket to be lifted up to the point that you cannot back drag with the heel of the bucket. Pushing and grading are also an issue because to get the cutting edge to touch the ground, the bucket has to be angled down forward. This causes the edge to catch the ground too easily and makes it next to impossible to use your bucket properly.
The Down Shifter Drop Height Adapter solves this problem. You can easily mount this drop height adapter to your bucket and then connect your skid steer to the adapter. Your bucket then works just like you did not add tracks.
This adapter also works great if you want to run over sized demolition tires that will raise your machine up over stock levels.
