Reading Truck Group unveiled an all-new crane body to its product lineup on May 11. The new RM-45 reflects more than a year of development between Reading’s engineering and design expertise with input from customers and those working in the field. The result is the all new RM-45, built and designed to deliver lifting capability, enhanced safety and lighting, and ease of accessory installations.
One of the most notable enhancements to this crane body is the addition of the torsion box understructure, which provides the strength and resistance needed to enable a powerful 45,000 foot-pound lift at full 100% capacity rating throughout the lifting zone. Built from galvannealed steel to resist corrosion, the RM-45 features a seamless wheelhouse panel, a redesigned workbench bumper with built in grip steps, and quick mount brackets for easy accessory installation. Headache rack and rear compartment mounted work lights and strobes provide additional lighting and enhances safety for the operator.
