Manitowoc has announced an extended warranty programme for its Grove GRT Rough Terrain cranes.
The programme consists of a two year standard warranty on newly ordered cranes, along with three additional tiers of total extended coverage for three, four and five years. The new programmes were introduced following design improvements and reliability testing at the company's Product Verification Centre.
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.
Chief executive Barry Pennypacker said: “Our new warranty program demonstrates to the market that we stand behind the reliability of our cranes. 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.”
