Contractors' Top 50 New Products: 50 Reasons to Feel Positive

It’s always an exciting time as we start planning to unveil the recipients of the Contractors’ Top 50 New Products award. Winners are selected from new products featured in the magazine and on the web portal over a 12-month period. To narrow down the hundreds of potential candidates, we look at the number of times readers of Equipment Today write in to inquire about a product, as well as the web inquiries and page views on the portal site.

What I find intriguing about this process is how the types of products deemed most meaningful to construction businesses continues to evolve. We’ve seen increasing interest in more sophisticated equipment and technology — a positive trend that seems to indicate the industry is looking to the future for more efficient and productive ways to complete construction projects.

This year’s award recipients are listed beginning on page 12. For more information, you can visit the revamped Buyers Guide at, which offers more details and links to brochures, spec guides, videos and application stories. (The updated directory also features 10,000+ used equipment listings and services, including the ability to bid online.)
