The EquipmentWatch annual awards are based on extensive analysis of millions of data records to determine which model series retain the highest percentage of its original value and lowest five-year total cost of ownership. EquipmentWatch Values analysts review the most popular equipment series observed on the resale channel in 2019 to determine 2020 HRVA winners. Series without a model in current production are removed. Only equipment series which consist of at least one model contained in the EquipmentWatch Residual Values software were considered.
