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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Sidney HTC Skid Steer Tree Shear
The Sidney HTCX Rotating Tree Shear for skid steers has multiple uses, you can cut a tree down, pivot the shear from inside your cab and cut the tree into sections. Pick up the sections and carry them away. Reach up and trim a standing tree. Clear downed trees quickly and easily.
The "World's Best Tree Shear" is just what Sidney says it is. The Sidney Tree Shear is a commercial grade tree shear built exclusively to be used with Skid Steer Loaders. It has the standard rotation feature that has made this model of shear so popular, but it is now more powerful than ever. The HTC has the largest cylinder and porting of any tree shear available. The larger porting and valving allow the flow of your machine to increase the speed of the cut. In addition, the HTC uses a 5.5" bore cylinder on the 14” model, and a 6” on the 16” model which increases the overall cutting power by 23% to 40% over our previous models.
This feature has actually been helpful to people with less powerful hydraulic systems because it gives them more power overall where they need it most. Example: Your machine has only 2250 PSI of pressure. You can boost the power by using the commercial model because of the larger cylinder size. It will run a bit slower because of the larger porting and cylinder, but you will end up with 23% more power than the same machine with the TB-02.
