Each year, the Contractors’ Top 50 New Products — hosted by Equipment Today and ForConstructionPros.com — showcases the new equipment and products that you as construction equipment owners and end users identify as those you find most intriguing. Recipients of the awards are determined based on your inquiries on new units featured in the magazine over a 12-month period, as well as page views and inquiries on the ForConstructionPros.com web portal. Each manufacturer is able to receive only one award, so the winning products represent the single highest ranking product for each company over the specified time frame.

The winners are grouped into categories based on product type or application. Due to high interest, for 2016, we have broken the Earthmoving category into Light and Heavy subcategories.
