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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 E-Series Backhoe Ripper Accessory
The Eterra ECS Ripper is another great heavily constructed accessory for your Eterra E-Series Backhoe. When on the job site, some skid steer operators think that they can use their buckets for certain tasks like ripping roots and stacking blocks, logs and rocks. Although that may work, in the long run it can damage your attachment and even your loader, not to mention waste a lot of time.
What you need is an ECS attachment that is specifically designed to take care of tasks like these. The ECS Ripper features a 16.5" ripper blade made of .5 inch thick T1 structural steel. The mount is made of .625" T1. When combined with the T1 lugging and precision machining, this is one tough ripper that will make quick work of these annoying tasks.
It can be quickly attached and detached to your skid steer loader using Eterra's quick-change ECS system. What used to take several minutes and a lot of elbow grease and pinched fingers, can now be done in seconds efficiently and painlessly.
*THIS ACCESSORY IS SPECIFICALLY MADE FOR THE ETERRA E-SERIES BACKHOES. NOT COMPATIBLE WITH EXCAVATOR MACHINES.
