Heartland’s story began on April 14, 1966, with a four-page want-to-buy newsletter called Contractors Hot Line. Since its humble beginnings, the weekly print and digital magazine has expanded to encompass new and used equipment, parts and attachments, equipment auctions and industry services. The division also publishes the monthly Parts Connection and the annual Attachment Connection manufacturer directory. Monthly digital titles TruckerZine, MyEquipAuctions, and Construction E-Update are resources for the transportation industry and those seeking heavy equipment auctions and auction results, respectively.
