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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 Flip Hitch Auger Mounting Frame
This is the frame that makes auger drive rotation and cement mixer bowl attachment possible. It is a lot heavier than a standard frame to allow for the extra weight due to the concrete and side loading. This product is designed to allow you to take your auger drive and add it to a skid steer mounted frame with a full 360 degree plumb operation and a locking flip mount action at an affordable price. The Eterra Auger Flip Mount Frame is compatible with all Eterra augers. Eterra frames are designed to take abuse and keep on working. With over 20 years of engineering and development, these mounting plates have a proven reliable reputation. Not only do they withstand modern skid steer loader punishment, but they also fit all modern skid steers. The Eterra base slots line up with all modern Bobcat, John Deere, Takeuchi, Gehl, Mustang, Caterpillar and other skidsteer loaders. Narrower slots are also included for older Case skid steer loaders.
The standard swivel frame features a 1/4" reinforced A50 plate (solid). It has been cut and formed to have an integrated step area along the entire top edge. It uses Eterra's standard 1" x 2" solid rails that are drilled and tapped and welded to the plate. The hole pattern allows you to use the plate on our other Eterra mount attachments. The swivel or dog bone is a single forged piece of 4140 that has been heat treated. It has grease points on all moving surfaces and is easily removed with a single pin. Included is a spring guard that routes and protects your hoses. Everything about this attachment shows quality and pride of workmanship.
Although experienced operators can utilize the Flip Hitch on its own to rotate their auger drives for horizontal drilling, it is not designed for this and any failure while doing so would not be covered by warranty
If you have any sizing questions regarding fit for your specific auger drives, please don't hesitate to contact Skid Steer Solutions.
