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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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-30M Mini Excavator Flail Mower
The Eterra EX-30 Micro Flail Mower is suitable for mini excavators ranging from 2200 lbs. to 7000 lbs., with flow rates of 8-26 GPM. Despite its light frame and weight the EX-30M does not compromise on power. This makes it one of the lightest mower in the 30" class, capable of operation on the smallest excavators without losing performance. The drive system is recognized for its strength and reliability complete with an electronically balanced cutter shaft that promotes efficient operation and long operating life.
The Eterra Cutter Shaft is made from 5" Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) Tubing, not steel pipe, enhancing its strength and longevity. It is cut and constructed by Eterra, ensuring high-quality. DOM is an electric resistance welded tube that undergoes a cold working process to improve its mechanical properties. It is made from SAE 1020 or 1026 steel and provides precision, improved tolerances, surface finish, and tensile strength, making it suitable for applications requiring high quality and durability.
The EX-30M comes with a blank universal mounting plate. A case drain line is necessary for operation, which alleviates pressure from motor seals, extending their life. However, certain newer machines, including Yanmar, might not require a case drain due to a return-to-tank setting. Bobcat, Yanmar, Kubota, Caterpillar, or Case Excavators do not require a case drain.
Operating processes might vary based on the machine. Older models with two pumps cannot drive forward and cut simultaneously. Forward movement must be paused to initiate cutting. However, newer models like Kubota and any Yanmar that use three pumps can drive and cut at the same time.
