Reading Truck Group RM-45 Crane Body

Reading Truck Group, a premier truck equipment manufacturer and distributor, has added an all-new crane body to its product lineup. The RM-45 is designed and built 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.

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 also features a seamless wheelhouse panel, a redesigned workbench bumper with built-in grip steps and quick-mount brackets for easy accessory installation. A headache rack and rear compartment mounted work lights and strobes provide additional lighting and enhance safety for the operator.
