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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Bradco Heavy Duty Skid Steer Padded Vibratory Roller
The Bradco Padded Vibratory Roller for skid steers is a really great attachment. Also known as a sheepsfoot roller, these guys are fantastic for compacting of plastic soils like silt and clay. The feet will penetrate through loose overburden while compacting the targeted sub materials.
These rollers when compared to any other manufacturer's offerings simply do not compare. An extreme build quality is a necessity when it comes to attachments suited to compacting, and that point was not missed by Bradco. They are hard hitting machines that can deliver up to between 5750 and 9370 lbs. of dynamic force when operating at 20-25 GPM. These commercial duty rollers have hydraulic drives that are protected and isolated to provide maximum performance and reliability. Their versatility makes them highly effective on a wide range of materials including sand, gravel, soils and asphalt.
The steel drum has an adjustable scraper blade between the frame and drum ensuring smooth and uniform compaction performance. The quality of these rollers cannot be understated making them awesome for rental fleets, contractors, landscaping, roadways, walkways, bike paths, golf courses, bridges and parking lots.
