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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

Virnig V70 Skid Steer Disc Mulcher Attachment
Meet the all new Forestry and Land Clearing Disc Mulcher from Virnig Manufacturing. If you are like us, you've been watching these behemoth disc mulchers online, and seeing your competitors test the waters with them. We've tried them, and man were we impressed. It takes the best of the Clearing Mower/Cutters and what long-standing attachment manufacturers have been doing with there Disc blade carriers on the ultra duty cutters and says... "You know what... Let's step it up it notch". Cut through trees like butter (no bog), suck them in into your wheel and mulch them to shreds (no jamming), grind the bottom of the tree that is left (nothing left after that), and don't bother switching between your standard drum mulcher and brush cutter before getting into the "thick woods" (One attachment does almost all of the work).
These are many things... But they are not your typical mulcher attachment so if this is your first mulching attachment, please review "the basics" below before considering one of these.

- If you or your operator are a first time operator, give us a call or chat with us on livechat to discuss the nature of your job
