Judging comments:

“These stories on hot new construction equipment prove that Compact Equipment gets its audience. The team didn’t just present analysis and trends, it gathered specs, sought out advice — and operated machines from across the U.S. Each article exudes enthusiasm in part because of the extra mile traveled to experience the culture of the companies featured.

“In addition to detailed reporting and clear writing, these stories use an appealing dossier-style design and ample onsite photographs. All elements come together to make for a truly informative read. The stated mission of the section was to ‘bring the operational experience to our readers.’ Mission accomplished — and then some.
