    anyone else heard about this???....I bought a set of mulch blades for my scag, the dealer says that I should stock up on them because steel is going to be in short supply. Causing a shortage. He had a small supply himself. Seems all of our steel is being sent overseas to china and the middle east. I have been dealing with him for a dozen years and he's never seen it this bad.

    Don't know about a steel shortage but my dealer did run out of Atomic's for awhile. I was hating life having to run high lifts again. Nothing but clump tossers......

    Yup its true!!! Spoke with two local steel yards when i built sides for my dump truck, they both said there is a huge buliding boom in Asia and they are buying it up quick. A sheet of mesh cost me 2 times what it did last year. Went from $40 to $80!!!!!!
