The scope of products for automotive repair grows every day with the introduction and upgrade of new tools and equipment. All of these new items promise some sort of timesaving or labor-reducing quality, but being that they're new, it can be difficult to separate the top performers from the dust collectors. The Innovation Award presented by Professional Tool & Equipment News works to do just that by recognizing truly new and innovative products that the end-user feels can help save time or make a particular service easier. In identifying these winning products, PTEN calls upon the services of 12 ASE-Certified Master Technicians and Shop Owners to spotlight the best of the best. PTEN uses selections that are based solely on the panel's frontline-tested observations, thoughts and opinions, and without the input of advertisers or the magazine's staff. Congratulations to this issue's winners and special thanks to our panel for their dedicated service in recognizing the best our industry has to offer.
