Your equipment fleet represents both the lifeblood of your business and your largest capital expense. It’s critical that the units you acquire and use in your operation make sense for your applications and can deliver the greatest return on investment.

The 2014 Contractors’ Top 50 New Products represent a broad cross section of equipment types, all with one common denominator — they offer the potential to deliver the value you need to complete jobs more quickly, reduce owning and operating costs and ultimately put more money to the bottom line. Hosted by Equipment Today and ForConstructionPros.com, this awards program lets you be the judges in selecting the recipients. Nominees were determined based on reader inquiries on new products featured in the magazine over a 12-month period, along with page views and inquiries on ForConstructionPros.com. Manufacturers are able to receive only one award, so the winning product represents the single highest ranking product for the company for the specified time frame.
