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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 EX-30 Excavator Flail Mower
The Eterra EX-30 Flail Mower for excavators is an absolute game-changer when it comes to clearing brush from roadsides, ditches, driveways, and fields. This magnificent machine is carefully crafted to tackle the toughest tasks with unrivaled efficiency, making it the go-to solution for professionals who demand nothing but the best.
Its hydraulic system operates flawlessly within the hydraulic flows of 8-26 gallons per minute (GPM), guaranteeing optimal performance in the toughest conditions. Its cutting capabilities, effortlessly devour materials up to 4-5 inches in thickness (and up to 6 inches with slow, steady operation). This flail mower is a true force of nature.
Sporting AR400 skid shoes, the EX-30 Flail Mower enables you to conquer any terrain, be it side hills or uneven landscapes, without compromising the stability of your machine. By utilizing A572 grade 50 high strength steel for its construction, Eterra achieves the perfect balance between strength and weight.
When it comes to the heart of the EX-30—the cutter shaft—Eterra's ingenuity shines brightly. By utilizing 6" DOM Tubing, an incredibly robust and long-wearing material, they have crafted a shaft that stands tall amidst the fiercest challenges. The cutter shaft is electronically balanced to achieve the utmost efficiency during operation and to extend its lifespan. The flawless performance of the flail glides seamlessly, eliminating any side-to-side or up-and-down vibrations.
The EX-30 Flail Mower is powered by Permco gear drive motors which are renowned for their robust construction and consistency. Utilizing this gear drive motor, the EX-30 Flail Mower maintains steady speeds of 1900-2300 RPM with 20 Y-Knife flail blades, each weighing 2 ¼ lbs. The electronically balanced shaft of the motor and these knives together, are a masterpiece in action. To reduce the vibrations from cutting with such a high RPM, this Flail Mower has a built-in rubber dampener which keeps these vibrations to a minimum.
Note: Every excavator is different. Many machines (Especially older models) use only two pumps. One to control your stick and rotation, and one for track drive and auxiliary flow (your mower). For machines that have this type of pump arrangement, it is not possible to drive the machine forward and cut at the same time. You will need to drive forward, stop, and then sweep back and forth for cutting. For operators with newer machines like Kubota and any Yanmar, you have three pumps so you can drive and cut at the same time.
