Manitowoc bullish about crane reliability


Manitowoc is so confident in the reliability of its range of rough-terrain cranes that it is increasing the warranty available for the vehicles.

Coverage for the Grove GRT series can now be extended by an optional one, two or three years, in addition to the standard two years offered.

The new basic and extended warranty packages have been introduced to reflect the reliability testing and improved design work carried out at the company’s Product Verification Center located at Shady Grove, Pennsylvania.

Customers could previously extend their GRT series warranty from one to two years for an additional cost, but the two-year term is now standard across the entire GRT series product line.

“Our new warranty program demonstrates to the market that we stand behind the reliability of our cranes,” said Barry Pennypacker, president and CEO of Manitowoc.

“With the new GRT series, we’ve taken the necessary steps to increase customer uptime, reduce maintenance and provide a better user experience for operators. And now, we can exceed that level of quality with a best-in-class warranty for customer peace of mind.”
