Wacker Neuson’s trench rollers are designed with a best-in-class maintenance-free lower end that saves time, money and increases the units’ uptime, according to the company.
Wacker Neuson has announced the industry’s first 5-year bumper-to-bumper transferable warranty on its popular RT trench roller series. This unprecedented warranty covers the entire machine, and because it is administered through Wacker Neuson’s warranty program, it stays with the machine no matter how many times it is resold within the 5-year warranty period.
The 5-year bumper-to-bumper warranty is available for all RTx rollers sold in the United States and Canada starting October 1, 2013. It covers all components except typical wear and maintenance items such as filters, etc. The machine’s serial number is registered through Wacker Neuson and will follow the machine from owner to owner. Any authorized and trained Wacker Neuson dealer in the U.S. and Canada will be able to support the warranty of these units for the full five years, regardless of location and owner generation. For a complete set of details on the official warranty policy from Wacker Neuson please contact your local dealer.
“This new warranty provides both rental dealers and contractors with peace of mind and much improved predictability of the life cost of the unit. In addition, there is the added benefit of increased resale value,” said Johannes Schulze Vohren, vice president and managing director Wacker Neuson Corporation. “To be able to offer a full warranty to a buyer for an additional two or three years depending on when the machine is sold out of the rental or the contractor’s fleet, is a huge advantage. Obviously, we have tremendous confidence in this machine to back it completely for five years.”
When Wacker Neuson designed the modern day trench roller over 20 years ago, it offered the industry a machine designed for reliability and job site protection. “Continuous innovation has always been an integral part of the Wacker Neuson corporate culture,” said Schulze Vohren, “Since the introduction of the original RT, numerous enhancements have been made to not only offer the best performing trench roller in the market, but also to offer the best available safety features. At Wacker Neuson we are very proud of the unmatched success and confidence the RT roller continues to enjoy in the market,” added Schulze Vohren.
One of the most important innovations designed for the trench roller has been the infrared-remote control, called Smart Control, which was designed with safety in mind. The unsurpassed infrared technology requires the operator to maintain line-of-sight at all times, eliminating dangerous blind spots and keeping the job site and its workers better protected.
Wacker Neuson’s trench rollers are designed with a best-in-class maintenance-free lower end that saves time, money and increases the units’ uptime, according to the company. This maintenance-free lower end includes lifetime lubricated bearings and drive gears with patented lube free exciter gears, exclusive to Wacker Neuson. There is actually no oil that needs to be changed. The roller also features a single piece body exciter motor which is a simpler and more durable design.
