As we put 2020 in the rearview mirror, here’s a look at which machines were popular in search engines over the past 12 months.

According to Google Trends, “Scissor Lift” searches were popular in the following states:

  1. Idaho
  2. North Dakota
  3. Nebraska
  4. Wisconsin
  5. Oklahoma

Boom lift” searches were popular in:

  1. Wisconsin
  2. Arkansas
  3. Iowa
  4. Kansas
  5. Tennessee

Skid steer” searches were hot in:

  1. South Dakota
  2. Wyoming
  3. North Dakota
  4. Montana
  5. Iowa

And, although the ANSI safety standards for lifts implemented in June calls for the switch from Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) to Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP), Google searches for “AWP” and “Aerial Work Platform” far exceed those for MEWP and “Mobile Elevating Work Platform.”

For Fleet Up Marketplace, the most searched for machines include a mix of dirt equipment and aerial lifts:

  1. 2018 Toro Dingo TX 1000
  2. 2004 JLG 400S
  3. 2012 Bobcat T650
  4. 2008 Genie Z-45/25J
  5. 2015 Polaris Ranger Crew 570 EFI

With the addition of machines from Herc Rentals, Holt of California and Sunstate Equipment, Fleet Up Marketplace is fast becoming the place to find great deals on used construction equipment in 2021 and beyond.
