Each year the Specialty Equipment Market Association, more commonly referred to as SEMA, puts on a show in Las Vegas that caters to potential dealers, buyers, and various media outlets. It's here manufacturers showcase their latest product lineup for the upcoming year and it's here we're fortunate enough to be able to see everything firsthand.

Truth be told, it's an absolute blast to be able to walk the show and talk to various manufacturers, but something to keep in mind is that the show also serves another very important purpose. Foremost, it allows us to get the inside scoop of what's to come, but as a direct result of that, it also helps us plan for the following year's editorial.

This year, the pickings were ripe and there were plenty of products to scan and learn about. So without further ado, here are the top 16 products that caught our attention and very fitting for a wide variety of applications.
