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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 Hose Spring
We designed this spring to be a simple and effective means to route hoses out of the danger areas while allowing us to have the flexibility to still use hose wrap and to let the hose move as required. This is critical to the longevity of the hose so to get all of these things together in one place, we designed it and are now offering them on our web site.
We use these springs on augers and other attachments where hose routing is over the top of the attachment plate.
As an online retailer of thousands of skid steer attachments, we have found that one of the most challenging issues we face is routing hoses. There are so many machines that have different boom designs that it is next to impossible to have one method that works for all. This Hose Spring is a game changer.
