This week's newsletter includes a couple of fleet expansion reports. We find these valuable because they indicate the areas of economic growth - both geographically and in industrial sectors.

The reports also show which manufacturers and dealers are making significant sales - and that's also valuable information for anyone planning to add machines or replace existing ones.
