Equipment Trends

What are current equipment trends in specific types of construction?

Manufacturers of telehandlers are now offering more compact models than before. Meanwhile, manufacturers of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders are now offering larger models than before. This means that more applications will be able to be served almost equally well by either a small telehandler or a large skid steer loader. 

Pavers are moving from using propane to heat asphalt to using electricity to heat asphalt. Satellite navigation systems such as GPS or GLONASS allow site prep equipment to work without markers such as pegs or strings. Compactors are now using software to determine the number of passes on freshly laid asphalt. Loaders and trucks are being installed with weigh scales. General construction is in the early adoption stages of hybrid technologies. Mining and rail are examining how other fuel sources, such as natural gas, can be adopted.
