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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

SKIDDER PRO - TOOL CARRIER
The Skidder Pro Tool Carrier is designed to attach to the side of your skid steer and carry your tools so you will never be without them on the jobsite!
Another Skid Steer Solutions first. Just look at what a simple and effective idea this is for your Skid Steer Loader. How many times have you been on a job site and needed your hand tools close by? You end up walking back and forth retrieving them, only to accidentally run them over because of the blind spots on your skidsteer. By adding a Skidder Pro to your loader, you will never be without your hand tools when and where you need them.
The Skidder Pro is a time and productivity-enhancing patent pending product. It is American made in Wisconsin and tough enough to give you years of service. They are designed to fasten to your skid steer loader boom arm, and to carry two tools per set inside the wheelbase of most skidsteers. The UHMW plastic base is tough enough to stop a bullet and is UV resistant. The heavy duty 3' long polypropylene strap has a breaking strength of 900 lbs and melting point of 330 degrees Fahrenheit, and is designed to be a universal fit to any conventional skid steer, tractor loader, or even most of the new single arm JCB's. The ratchet is zinc plated for long life, and the high carbon heat-treated steel is designed to receive just about any size tool handle from 1" push brooms and rakes to 2" scoop shovels. Once snapped into place in the Skidder Pro clips, your tools will stay with you until you remove them. No more running after tools for that end of job clean up! Are you saying to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?".
