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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Skeer Machine Control Ready Grader Attachment (2D/3D Ready)
The Skeer Machine Control Ready Unit comes ready for precision laser grading. Choose between 3 blade designs that are equipped with all necessary hydraulic components to work with ANY laser 2D or 3D guidance system. Select (optional) Skeer 2D laser guidance kit (kit explained in Options section). You may purchase the units without the Skeer (Leica) laser guidance kit or additional product option if you would prefer to source it elsewhere, but the unit cannot be run without it a laser control system. Guidance components also available as singular product options.
The Skeer Laser Guidance Kit included nearly all the laser components and controls necessary for 2D grading. You will also need a laser transmitter to work with the kit that you choose to set the grade and guide your unit. This transmitter can be purchased as an additional option with your purchase, or elsewhere (Skeer systems will work with nearly any laser transmitter) and it works hand in hand with your laser receiver and Skeer grader blade. Other accessories include side plates that keep excess material in front of the blade, an aluminum grade measuring rod, and an extendable fiberglass tripod for your laser transmitter.
The equipment is adjusted to the ground traction level which greatly simplifies the work for the operator. The operator does not have to worry about their start adjustment each time he puts the equipment back on the ground. All units have removable hydraulic cylinder parts and a hydraulic safety device.
Guidance Settings (Laser Guidance Kit)
The guidance system allows you to work in automatic, assisted or manual functions. Automatic lets you set the grade and the unit will make the necessary adjustments while on the move. Assisted function will give the operator an indication when the system needs to be adjusted, and the operator can make adjustments accordingly. Manual function is for rough grading where you want to move more material with less precision. These functions give operators the ability to do both general and precision grading with the same attachment. All automated movements are done directly on the attachment to ensure high accuracy and facilitate the installation.
