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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Skid Steer G3 Gorilla Root Grapple
The G3 Root Grapple 38" is a super heavy duty grapple that is perfect for ripping up concrete, roots, picking up logs, rocks, concrete, and other heavy objects. This grapple was developed specifically based upon customer feedback. A lot of people loved the design of the G2 Grapple, but wanted more tines so that the grapple could pick up smaller items. Finally, after some customers started asking for a quote with extra tines, Sidney Manufacturing responded with the G3.
The G3 Grapple is the G2 only with 5 tines on the top and bottom instead of 3. The tines are exactly the same. Nothing has been compromised in the design or function. This grapple does weigh in at 1216 pounds , so customers will need a machine of at least 1750 pound lift capacity to have an adequate payload. This grapple is ideal for demolition and clean up in confined spaces. You can still tear out concrete as well as pick up the pieces. Of course logging is still a cinch and don't forget about heavy rock work. Nothing is impossible with this grapple attachment for your skid steer loader. It is built to the same high commercial standards as all Sidney products.
