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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Branch Manager 53" Skid Steer Powered Rotation Hardox Log Grapple
The Skid Steer 53" Power Rotating Hardox Log Grapple comes fully assembled and mounts to full sized skid steer loaders with mounting plate and flat faced couplers included. A Hardox wear plate in the body and grapple arms increases the strength of the grapple to three times the standard steel components. With the Hardox wear plate, it gives this attachment an extended service life and provides superior abrasion resistance. It features a hydraulic power rotating grapple so the operator can control the grapple rotation inside the cab, and the grapple head is made of Hardox steel, increasing it's maximum strength and durability. This attachment comes with the industry leading features such as Trailer Hitch Receiver and is built with an 3" Rope Bollard to easily capture the rope mid-line for lifting or directing tree operations and anti open load holding valve on the grapple head.
Dual Auxiliary Hydraulics
This attachment has two hydraulic functions (grapple arms and rotation), and there are a couple of different ways this can be set up. If your machine has two sets of auxiliary hydraulics, go with the Dual Aux option, which includes 4 hoses and allows you to control the functions using your machine's controls.
The standard two hose option uses an electrical oil diverter and momentary push button that is either already on the machine or can be purchased.
