Equipment Trends

What are current equipment trends in specific types of construction?

Nonresidential construction is expected to see an uptick in 2014-15, and with that, the need for aerial equipment increases. Scissors and booms are a perennial staple in projects of all stripes, but growth in fields such as the oil and gas market, as well as in established markets such as industrial construction and maintenance, have resulted in the need for taller boom lifts that can be easily transported, set up and moved as needed.

In all types of construction, there is a need for cleaner, greener machines that offer versatility, productivity and greater cost efficiency. That’s why we’re seeing generators that can run on propane or even well gas, as well as hybrid scissors and boom lifts that run on electric power but offer an integrated diesel generator for backup power.
