NOTE: Check back if the requested manual is not yet available.
In the event that a product return for factory repair
is indicated, your Representative or Distributor can
arrange this for you and explain the returns procedure. Please consult
product manual for details on warranty limitations and status. For product
returns, please be prepared to answer questions about the pump serial#,
(see the "How to Identify your Pump" page)
application details (fluid mix, pressure, capacity, temperature, duty
cycle, etc.), and any other symptoms and indications that might help
determine the root cause of the problem, and avoid it in the future.
If you require complete failure analysis, please return the pump in an
and unaltered condition. The actual disassembly process often gives indications
of failure modes so this is very important to consider. In some circumstances,
customer disassembly may void your warranty.

The obligations of MTH Tool Company, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "MTH"), with respect to a "Product" (defined below) are limited as set forth herein.
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, including the "implied warranty of merchantability" and the "implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose" are HEREBY DISCLAIMED.
There are no warranties which extend beyond the description on the face hereof.
MTH warrants that, during the "Warranty Period" (defined below), the "Product" (defined below) will not fail to meet the "Operational Specifications" (defined below), within applicable industry tolerances established by the Hydraulic Institute, due to defects in its materials and workmanship. MTH does not warrant that any Product will meet the "Operational Specifications" in conditions other than the Standard Operating Conditions, unless agreed to by MTH in a signed writing.

If, within the Warranty Period, a Purchaser believes that a Product has failed to meet its Operational Specifications, the Purchaser must request a Return Goods Authorization ("RGA") in the manner specified at http://www.mthpumps.com, and supply any additional information MTH might reasonably request. If the Product was purchased through a distributor or any entity other than MTH, the RGA request must be made through that entity. Any Product returned without an RGA will be refused at the dock.

MTH may, in its sole discretion, deny any warranty claim if shipping damage, any attempted disassembly, or any other action outside of MTH's control impairs MTH's determination of the existence of, or cause of a claimed failure.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Limited Warranty, MTH shall have no obligation to repair or replace any Product it determines to have any defects arising from or attributable to: (1) abrasion, corrosion, or erosion arising after shipment from MTH; (2) improper handling, packaging, installation, storage, or maintenance, after it is shipped by MTH; (3) repairs or alterations outside of MTH's factory, in any manner, without MTH's written authorization; (4) misuse, negligence, or accident after shipment from MTH; (5) use in a manner inconsistent with MTH's published instructions and Operational Specifications, or other written specifications agreed to by both Purchaser and MTH; or (6) incorrect power supply or power quality.

If, after examination by an authorized representative of MTH, MTH determines that the Product failed to meet the "Operational Specifications", within applicable industry tolerances established by the Hydraulic Institute, due to defects in its materials and workmanship, during the Warranty Period, then MTH will, at its option, ship a repaired or replaced Product to the Purchaser, F.O.B. MTH's factory in Plano, Illinois, U.S.A., freight prepaid and allowed. MTH will use a freight provider of its choosing, via a method no slower than that used for shipping the Product to MTH.
