Each year, Rental selects new equipment and products that are deemed the most fascinating and impressive by our readers, end-users, and rental professionals in a 12-month period. The editorial team combs through pages of data on the hundreds of new products featured in the magazine and online to see which ones have received the most clicks and page views. 

Though audience engagement online at is one way of choosing the winners, innovation and utility for the rental market are two other important factors in determining which products have made the biggest impact on the industry. This year, we broke the winners into five categories: Construction, Earthmoving, General Tool, Lifts, Material Handling, and New Tech, so there's a little something for everyone.
