Rental Names 2020 Editor’s Choice Award Winners

Every year, Rent selects the new equipment and products deemed the most fascinating and impressive by our readers, end users and rental professionals over a period of 12 months. The editorial team sifts 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.

Although online audience engagement on ForConstructionPros.com/Location is one way to pick winners, innovation and usefulness to the rental market are two other important factors in determining which products have had the biggest impact on the industry. This year, we have divided the winners into five categories: Construction, Earthmoving, General Tools, Elevators, Material Handling and New Technologies. So there is a little something for everyone.

So, without further ado, drum roll, please! Here are the 30 winners of Rental 2020 Editor’s Choice Award.
