For the six years now, Asphalt Contractor Magazine has chosen the Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards. These products represent the equipment and innovations contractors have put to the test and say they can’t work without. We consider what products they’re searching for most on our website,, what equipment they’re sharing photos of on our social media pages and those recent equipment innovations that are gaining attention and traction on the jobsite. The result is a breadth of products that represent the new and improved as well as the tried and true.

We hope these products help you get some ideas on what equipment might be a good addition to your fleet this year.
