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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

EZ SPOT UR Rock and Tree Hand Tool
The 5-Finger Rock and Tree Handler is exactly what the name insinuates. In the plain configuration with a fixed base, you can accurately and safely grab rocks and trees and place them with pin point accuracy. When configured with the rotating plate, a whole new dimension is achieved whereby you can pick a rock or tree up and rotate it into place. The RT Hand was originally designed for placing Palm Trees so it has features like rubber lined claws as well as a shape that is gentle to the tree. The strength of this machine is so great that it can hold rocks easily and it even has specialized rock tips that make it even more functional when handling big heavy rocks. For Landscapers, this tool is a must!
This page features the stand-alone attachment. In order to utilize the Rock and Tree Hand Tool, you must combine it with an EZ SPOT UR Base Unit.
