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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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 Skid Steer Fixed Quick Hitch 3-Point Adapter
The Eterra Fixed 3-Point Adapter enables you to use agricultural 3-Point attachments as skid steer attachments. With this quick hitch 3-point adaptor, you can now use your skid steer loader and all of your farmyard tools that have made you so successful. What’s even more impressive is that this fixed 3-point adapter attachment can be connected to any agricultural attachment just as easily as you connect to a bucket. Unique, durable and safe. Three words that define this skid steer attachment. Why safe? This 3-point adaptor features a locking mechanism on the hitches, which is lacking in many other designs. This is a serious safety issue that can easily arise when pushing an attachment that can come directly back at you in the cab. Skid steer loaders mostly use the pushing method as opposed to the tractor pulling method. Eterra offers the strongest and safest attachments for skid steer loaders so we have implemented this locking mechanism as a way to better ensure your safety.
What are some key features and benefits of this Eterra product? Well to start; the lift arms, hitch receiver and top bar link (fixed). Also included is a Reese Style Hitch for attaching trailers and whatever else you can think of. This 3-point adaptor can also be accompanied by a motor kit should the need arise to use powered attachments on it in the future. Lastly, you get Eterra's reputable One Year No-Hassle Warranty.
You can choose between the Category 1 and Category 2 options when ordering. The difference is the size of the hitch pins, which are 7/8” for Cat 1 and 1-1/8" for Cat 2. The lift arms will be secure with either option because they are adjustable from 24” to 36”, which covers spacing for all Categories 0 – 2. Rest assured that when you mount anything on this 3-point adaptor, it is going to be safe and secure, and not to mention very easy to attach.
