FORT ATKINSON, Wis., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- What are the hottest new construction products for 2011? Equipment Today, the commercial contractors' preferred equipment information resource, tallied 12 months of new product inquiries from readers and website visitors to come up with its inaugural Equipment Today Contractors' Top 50 Products.

"Contractors who have postponed equipment replacements will find this list invaluable as they consider purchases necessitated by obsolescence or aging," asserted Equipment Today editor, Becky Schultz. "To compete for bids in today's market, contractors will need the fuel economy and efficiency provided by many of these new-to-market products."

The editorial teams from Equipment Today, which reaches 77,000 construction equipment owners, and the Equipment Network on, the industry's #1 construction web portal, tallied product inquiries for the last 12 months, including product introductions from the construction industry's biggest North American trade show, CONEXPO-CON/AGG, which was held earlier this year.

Their analysis resulted in the final 2011 Equipment Today's Contractors' Top 50 Products, a listing of the industry's foremost game changers.  Additional information will be available in the September issue of Equipment Today and on
