Judging for the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Awards completed this week and Lind Equipment received an award for the Beacon LED Tower in the Commercial Site Lighting category.
A panel of judges made up of tool and media professionals from across the United States and Canada weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers. Here's what the judges had to say:
“What happens when you need a lot of light for exterior locations? Lind Equipment has broken the barrier and their Beacon LED Tower light puts out 120,000 lumens from four 200-watt LED lights. The system has a fuel tank that gives you up to 45 hours of runtime from a standard 2000-watt generator that you’ll need to supply. It’s designed to be transported and set up by a single person if necessary. When powerful lighting is what you need, you now have a legitimate LED option.”
Hundreds of power tools, hand tools, fasteners, and accessories were judged, and winners were decided based on industry innovation. Winners demonstrated achievement in any combination of the following: innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, and value. The Pro Tool Innovation Awards recognize best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time.
This year, over 60 different tool manufacturers submitted nearly 300 tool entries in dozens of categories for a shot to win a 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Award.
"Manufacturers are consistently improving their tools. Each year, however, some exceed the norms and develop products which truly deserve recognition. Business owners, builders, contractors, and tradespeople really need to understand which products can help them work smarter and more efficiently," said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. "Often, they can also save a lot of money in either material costs or time-savings. That innovation goes straight into their pocketbook."
