Reading launches RM-45 crane body

May 12, 2021
More than a year in development, the newest addition to the Reading lineup will be featured in the upcoming “Driving What’s Next” webinar series

Reading Truck Group has added an all-new crane body to its product lineup. 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, according to the manufacturer. The result is the all new RM-45, built and designed to deliver unsurpassed lifting capability, enhanced safety and lighting, and ease of accessory installations. All systems on the body have been thoroughly re-engineered and reimagined to deliver the most capable, best-performing Reading crane body ever.

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

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, Reading notes. 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.

Reading’s experts will take a deep dive into the new RM-45 series, in its upcoming Driving What’s Next webinar series on June 16th. The all-new crane body is backed by Reading’s industry-leading five-year warranty, and is available for quote today.
