Barreto RTK Chosen for Rental’s Editor’s Choice Award


Rental, a nationally recognized magazine serving equipment rental professionals for the past 36 years, has selected the Barreto Stand-on RTK Track Trencher as a recipient of one of its 2015 Editor’s Choice Awards!

The Barreto Stand-On RTK Track Trencher was chosen as a winner for the 2015 Editor’s Choice Awards based on several factors, including audience engagement online at, over a 12-month period. Winners were also selected for meeting a number of other criteria including innovation, versatility, productivity, and profit potential.

The all new RTK Stand-on Track Trencher from Barrreto features a fixed platform and unique fine tuning control adjustment that uses rod linkage instead of cables. The new Adjustable Trenching Control (ATC) can be placed into position to modify the trenching speed of the tracks individually while on the go. Individual track controls can be adjusted separately during operation allowing the operator to keep their trench straight when working on uneven terrain. Simple, one-handed controls are easy for any operator, and the boom pivot design keeps high maintenance components out of the dirt, reducing wear.

Because of their large footprint, track trenchers are less invasive on the landscape. Cross-trenching is made simple and by combining tracks with additional weight, the ability to keep the trench straight is greatly improved.

“We’re excited to present the 2015 Editor’s Choice Award winners. As always, this year’s winning products represent the best of what leading manufacturers have to offer for today’s rental inventories,” says Jenny Leschohier, editor of Rental. “Products chosen for this honor are those which construction professionals have shown active interest in, so it follows they’ll be looking for them at their preferred rental source. We’re pleased to offer this useful insight to our readers.”

The editorial teams from Rental and compiled web page views from products featured online at over a 12-month period and then considered those that received the most interest against a set of criteria to determine the winners. The result is the 2015 Editor’s Choice Awards, a listing of the industry’s favored products.
