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us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason.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

XBoom Excavator Skid Steer Adapter Coupler by Amulet
Quickly switch between excavator and skid steer or mini skid steer attachments on your mini excavator with this revolutionary attachment system! This allows you to get more out of the machines and attachments you already have. Use skid steer buckets, pallet forks, mowers etc on your excavator. The only limitation is making sure not to tip your machine with too much weight. The Amulet XBoom Excavator Coupler System is comprised of three interacting components that allow you to convert a mini excavator into a rigid boom skid steer attachment carrier. The first component is installed at the end of the boom and dipper stick, where the excavator arm would normally attach. This specialized mount quickly attaches using pins to either the XBoom skid steer (or mini skid steer) mount, or the 3rd component that attaches to the excavator arm where it connects to the boom, making switching between the arm and the skid steer mount extremely quick. With this rigid boom machine set up the excavator can run virtually any skid steer attachment. Check out the Product Video's tab for a video that shows this process, as it's a bit tough to visualize.
While the skid steer mount is in place, the overall footprint of the machine is smaller (because the excavator arm is removed) and the center of gravity is closer to the machine for improved lift and carrying capacity. You also lose none of the range of motion that your excavator provides.
Find out what it's like to run standard skid steer, bobcat, mini universal (Ditchwitch, Vermeer, Dingo etc.) or other attachments you may own, on your mini ex. The possibilities go on and on.
Add on the QC Mate Quick Coupler Hand Clamp to make connecting your hydraulic quick couplers a breeze. As you switch back and forth between skid steer attachments and your excavator boom, pressure can build up in the hydraulic lines, making it nearly impossible to connect your quick couplers. QC Mate solves that problem.
