Most Vail products are warranted against any defect in material and workmanship for a period of 12 months for hydraulics, and 36 months for structural components from date of shipment when properly installed, maintained and operated within the limits of normal usage. Stump Shears carry a one year warranty on cylinders and structural components. Vail's patented Rip-N-Pin is guaranteed not to break during the lifetime of the product and under such conditions carries a free replacement guarantee. Labor charges are NOT covered under any warranty policy. For more specific guarantees, and warranties associated with all Vail products, consult either your owners manual, refer to the back side of Vail invoicing forms, or request a warranty policy from your Vail Products representative.
