Warranties are a measure of a company's confidence in their product.
We at Northwest Mfg. Inc. routinely take calls and answer questions on our machines that are 10, 20 or even 35+ years old. Most of these customers are looking for advice on a used machine they purchased from a friend, or perhaps looking for minor parts for a garage sale tug. We actually have folks looking for help on tugs we didn't even manufacture!

We rarely receive calls on machines less than 10 years old.

We are so confident about our single-wheel tugs, we have decided to extend our warranty from 90 days to 2 years (see details at bottom of page).

Some tug companies haven't even been around for long enough to have collected enough data to fully understand their warranty obligations. With over 40 years of operation and continuous improvement under our belt, we know our product and we know our customers.

You can be confident in your PowerTow purchase. We know we are.
