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

Contractors' picks for the 50 most interesting construction machines of the past year reflect a search for more sophisticated technology to create a more efficient and productive future

2013 Top50 Contractors Award W 11130535

Unveiling the recipients of the Contractors’ Top 50 New Products award is always exciting. Winners are selected from new products featured in Equipment Today magazine and on over a year. We narrow down the list of hundreds of candidates by looking at the number of times readers inquire about the products, as well as the web page views.

What I find intriguing about this process is how the types of products most meaningful to construction businesses continues to evolve. Interest in more sophisticated equipment continues to increase — indicating the construction industry is looking to technology for a more efficient and productive future.
