Like all manufacturers in this industry, we’re experiencing post-COVID supply chain ,and component availability challenges in 2021. We’re also seeing both our existing customers and new customers renting equipment or purchasing units further in advance to ensure they have the right machines and attachments to complete upcoming jobs. We’re also seeing an uptick in equipment purchases from the rental market, considering supply issues and the stability of interest rates and cost to borrow. This increase is most likely the result of decreased rental machine availability as fleets have diminished throughout the U.S. due to the increased lead time it’s taking to buy replacement units.
