Reading Truck Group Launches All New RM-45 Crane Body


Reading Truck Group unveiled an all-new crane body to its product lineup. The new RM-45 reflects more than a year of development between Reading, customer input, and those working in the field. As a result, Reading built the RM-45 to deliver unsurpassed lifting capability, enhanced safety/lighting, and ease of accessory installations. All systems on the body have been thoroughly re-engineered to deliver the most capable, best-performing Reading crane body ever.

“We’re excited to debut our newest and our best-performing crane body,” says Alan Farash, president and COO, Reading Truck Group. “This truck represents a whole new level of safety and productivity.”

Additionally, one of the most notable enhancements to this crane body is the addition of the torsion box understructure. This provides the strength and resistance needed for a 45,000 ft-lb lift at 100% capacity rating throughout the lifting zone. Further, 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 as well as enhance operator safety.

Reading’s experts will take a look into the RM-45 series in its “Driving What’s Next” webinar series on June 16th. Reading backs the all-new crane body with a five-year warranty; it is currently available for quote.
