Please! hint, hint. Bro-Tec was making a Ripper Tooth and Trencher at a reasonable price with good shipping. Because of a death in the company, they may or may not continue production.

I got one of those - AND their optional trencher attachment, AND their BH QA, which is really handy for swapping back and forth with the BH bucket. Great attachments!

BTW, bxpanded.com also makes a ripper tooth.

bxpanded does not make a ripper tooth for the LS backhoe. I asked. Michigan Iron Works does but the shipping is almost as much as the ripper tooth.

Maybe that high shipping cost is because you are close to the Arctic circle.

I heard the president mentioned that something should be be done to balance the playing field on shipping costs the Chinese pay, but not much else.... back to the subject of the thread..

Was hoping to see a picture of my recently ordered subsoiler being built.. :thumbsup:

Don't count on it. I just got off the phone with them. They are very far behind.

I ordered a Box Blade on Feb 27th. Was told "About 4 weeks" Order comments say "4-6 WK EST BUILD".

Today I was told "You're getting pretty close to the top of the list". I asked if we are looking at another 2 weeks or 4 weeks. The answer was: "Can't tell but we are doing the best we can".

Nice people, manufacturing good equipment. Sorry to see them getting so far behind.

I tried to make it clear from the start that our estimated lead times are only estimates and we're truly doing the what we physically can to get this new facility firing on all cylinders, which will greatly improve lead times.

I said it could be another couple of weeks, but we'll hope not any longer. If I agreed that it could be another 4, it was not my intention because I don't think it will be anywhere close to that.
Demand is what gets us behind and we're trying our best to feed it.

Growing pains are better than shrinking pains!

The easiest thing on any given day would have been to keep working within the limitations of your old building. You have chosen to to take the financial risk and short term growing pains in order to ensure a bright future for your company, your workers, and their families. That is a commendable thing. It is also a heck of a lot harder to expand when you do all of your work in-house. Other companies can borrow money and expand by farming the work out to factories all over the world. EA has full ownership of the production process, which means a lot of great things for customers- but also assumably means that this expansion process takes a lot more work.

As a new customer, I appreciate that your business expansion increases the likelihood that your company will still be there the next time I need an attachment.

So, if it takes a little more time for me to get my attachment- so be it.
