Pengo’s InterLok Coupler System Named RER Innovative Product Award Winner

InterLok®, Pengo’s recent product innovation, was recently named winner of the cutting/drilling category in RER’s 2017 Innovative Product Awards.

InterLok® is a patented variable geometry auger bit coupler system. Introduced by Pengo in January 2017, this innovative system allows an auger bit to utilize different coupler (hub) connections. The coupler is no longer permanently welded to the auger bit. This eliminates the need for auger bit adapters and allows for different types of auger drives with various output shaft sizes to be used. The system is ideal for the rental customer by reducing inventory but ensuring the right tool for the job.

RER founded the Innovative Product Award in 2003 to reward excellence in innovation in the manufacture of products for the equipment rental industry. Covering more than a dozen equipment categories that encompass the wide variety of machines utilized in the equipment rental industry, RER’s Innovative Product Award covers a unique variety of product offerings, unlike any other award. Its purpose is to recognize key innovations that enable rental customers to do their jobs more creatively and effectively and help rental operations run more smoothly and efficiently, as well as technological developments that move the industry forward.
