    As we enter the 2008/09 Snowplow Season we are once again faced with extremely volatile steel prices. Several of our Vendors have announced they can only honor Quotes for a 24 hour time frame! Others have delayed their new 08/09 Season price lists in order to reprint with new pricing. One of our vendors has given up and decided to ADD “Surcharges” to all orders effective immediately at 4.9% and that is subject to change daily.

    One of our new products (Scoop Dogg Snow Pushers) has been hit the hardest. We have already brought in a large quantity on a Pre-Season order which are already priced 20% higher than last year. We have just been informed all orders placed now will be another 15% higher with another increase anticipated sometime in September. This means a 12’ Loader ordered from our pre-season stock runs $4249.33 but once we run out of those they will run approximately $4886.73 and could run $5850.0 or higher after September 1st, 2008. Given the state of the industry, we would encourage anyone looking for new equipment regardless of Brand to make your purchases early this year.
