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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

The Eterra Auger Concrete Mixing System for Skid Steer Loaders
This attachment is an all in one system that allows you to mix concrete or cement with the auger you just drilled a hole with. The Eterra Concrete Mixing System comes complete with a universal skid steer mounting plate, flip hitch mount, and concrete mixer bowl, all in one package. Hoses and flat-faced couplers are also included in this configuration. When you are done mixing, you can flip the mount over and add an auger to drill post holes. Optional extensions and bits can also be selected to make this a complete, all-around auger package.
When Eterra went to work designing a new, state-of-the-art auger they sought to do something that differentiated the brand from the rest of the pack. They applied the Eterra signature of designing products with multiple uses. Eterra strives to create added value for customers by providing multiple options and uses that can result in increased productivity.
Developed with innovated Australian engineers and partners, Eterra is excited to offer the Concrete Mixing System. The base auger is similar to other manufacturers, but comparisons stop there. The Eterra Auger and Concrete Mixing System is offered in three different models, ensuring there is a fit with your specific model and brand of skid steer loader.
This drive system is unlike any other system available in the North American marketplace. Every other drive system on the market uses a drive shaft that is inserted from the front. It has a spline and a nut that goes on from the rear to hold the shaft in place. When you hang an auger bit on the shaft you immediately have an issue where the weight and turning motion are working on the shaft and are trying to pull the shaft out of the planetary drive. Eterra's drive shaft is inserted from the back of the gearbox and has a large thrust plate as part of the shaft. This plate keeps the weight distributed over a larger area and locks the shaft into place, virtually eliminating any risk of the shaft ever falling out of the drive unit. Eterra believes that this makes their drives much tougher than anything else available. Through more than 4 years of testing in Australia and Europe there have been no failures and you can believe the Aussies are hard on their attachments.
