Heavy Equipment Guide's Top Innovations for 2018: Part 1

Innovations shape our world, every day in many ways, and the staff at Heavy Equipment Guide want to acknowledge their importance in the world of construction-related equipment. As a result, we have created this new annual feature. Our goal is to illustrate the range and scope of advances, from earthmoving to paving, aggregates, lift, maintenance, training, wearables and others. These innovations offer advantages from doing the job faster, more accurately, more safely, more comfortably or more efficiently, to improving maintenance or providing a better ROI. The editors' selections are drawn from our coverage during the year. The selection was not always easy as there are many worthy innovations but we hope the diversity of the ones shown provide an appreciation of the vast amounts of time and money which manufacturers spend developing innovations, large and small, that make our lives better.

Large tires find second lives through recycling efforts

Tires are the foundation of transportation in North America - quite literally. Estimates from 2015 suggest that in the United States and Canada there are around 300 million passenger vehicles on the roads. Some simple math suggests that this number means there are some 1.2 billion tires in contact with road surfaces at any particular time. 

The advantages of retread tires

Today’s technology for retreading large tires has advanced far beyond where it began decades ago. Most tires on construction equipment and large trucks can be retreaded for much less than the cost of new tires, and the tread design and compounds used can be customized for specific applications, improving performance and longevity of the retreaded tire.
