Wacker Neuson has introduced a five-year bumper-to-bumper transferable warranty on its RT trench roller series, the first of its kind in the industry, according to the company.  The 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 five-year warranty period.  

The five-year bumper-to-bumper warranty is available for all RTx rollers sold in the United States and Canada starting Oct. 1. It covers all components except typical wear and maintenance items such as filters. 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 United States and Canada will be able to support the warranty of these units for the full five years, regardless of location and owner generation.

“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 Corp. “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.”
