Reading Truck Introduces the RM-78 Crane Body

The RM-78 Crane Body is the latest addition to the popular Mechanic Crane Body Series, joining the RM-45 Crane Body released last year.

Building on Reading’s next-generation design of the RM-series crane body, the RM-78 can handle the most challenging jobs in a safe, stable work environment. The addition of the redesigned torsion box understructure gives the crane body the strength to allow full 100% crane lifting capacity in all directions. It’s capable of handling up to 12,000lb cranes (78,000 ft/lbs) on both an 11′ (84″ c/a) and 14′ (120″ c/a) version and is designed to be matched with Class 6-7 trucks.

Built from galvannealed steel to resist corrosion, the RM-78 Crane Body also 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 enhance safety for the operator.

The RM-78 Crane Body is backed by Reading’s industry-leading warranties.
