It is Purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that all equipment is fully insured against any eventuality or casualty including, but not limited to, fire, theft and flooding until such time that goods are paid for in full.
Risk of loss passes to Purchaser upon Seller’s delivery of the equipment to the carrier. All claims by Purchaser for damage or shortage occurring after delivery of goods to carrier must be made directly against carrier. Before accepting goods from carrier, Purchaser must have carrier acknowledge any damage or shortage on the freight bill.
The following is in lieu of all warranties expressed, implied, or statutory, including but not limited to any expressed, implied or statutory of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or any other obligation on the part of Seller. There are no warranties which extend beyond the description on the face hereof. This is the one and only warranty (“Warranty”).
Seller agrees to furnish free of charge any part or parts necessary, solely selected at the discretion of Seller, to make good any defect directly traceable to a fault in workmanship of Seller, provided that the defective part or parts are promptly returned to Seller’s factory, freight prepaid by Purchaser.
Seller warrants that the equipment, subject to this quotation, when in good repair, properly adjusted and operated in accordance with the operating manual, is capable of performing within the specifications set forth in the quotation.
Seller further warrants the equipment to be free from defects in material and workmanship, which appear within a period of one (1) years from the date of shipment from Seller, or after 2,000 operating hours, whichever period is the lesser.
Period of Warranty
This Warranty shall be effective from the date of the initial installation; provided, in no event shall this Warranty extend beyond twelve (12) months from the date of shipment by Seller to Purchaser. Seller will provide any components free (except as limited in the case of wear parts) of charge, F.O.B. 2833 Huffman Blvd., Rockford, IL 61103 or F.O.B. third party vendor if dropped shipped, which fail due to breach of Warranty.
Operation of the equipment outside of the parameters outlined in the equipment manual provided with the equipment could void the Warranty.
This Warranty does not apply to defects due, directly or indirectly, to misuse, abuse, negligence, accident, repairs, or alterations outside of Seller facilities or to lack of or in appropriate maintenance.
This Warranty only applies to goods in the ownership of the first purchaser.
Technicians performing service work on Roper Whitney manufactured equipment that is not factory certified by Roper Whitney, will void all warranties.
This Warranty does not apply to items which have a use life under normal usage which is inherently shorter than the period indicated above for the applicable equipment, or part or component thereof (e.g. filters, lights, or any other item replaceable in the course of ordinary scheduled maintenance.) This Warranty does not apply to rubber goods or other consumable items. No warranty shall apply with respect to machinery or part not manufactured by Manufacturer, including but not limited to motors, accessories, electrical and hydraulic components, if such machinery or part is subject to warranty by the manufacturer of such machinery or part. No warranty claims by Customer will be honored with respect to any machinery or part from which the name and date plate has been removed or is otherwise no longer located or exhibited on such machinery or part.
If, in the opinion of Seller, on-site work is necessary to repair the defective equipment and the repair required to remedy the defective equipment would, in the opinion of Seller, exceed the skill level of a normal competent operator of the equipment, then Seller will perform the labor for the repairs in Purchaser’s facility.
If Seller is required to make repairs at Purchaser’s facility in accordance with these terms and, upon arrival, Seller determines that the nature of the problem is not a warranty related issue, then Purchaser shall pay the costs and expenses incurred by Seller in attempting to make repairs, including costs and expenses associated with Seller’s technician’s travel time, work time, and other expenses at Seller’s normal per diem rates.
Upon replacement of any original part with a replacement part from Seller, the original part shall become the property of Seller and shall be returned by Purchaser within thirty (30) days. If the part is not returned within thirty (30) days, Seller will invoice Purchaser for the commercial value of the part.
Purchaser’s remedy for breach of Warranty is limited to repair or replacement in the discretion of Seller.
Return of Warranty Parts
In all cases of a Warranty claim against a part or component, whether manufactured by Seller or a supplier to Seller, Purchaser shall notify Seller in writing of the Warranty claim and return the defective part or component to Seller freight pre-paid within thirty (30) days from the date of discovery of the defect.
Prior to performing any repair work, replacing any part or component which may be considered under Warranty, or supplying any parts or components which may be missing, Purchaser must notify Seller in writing of the defect and receive authorization from Seller in writing for such repair, replacement or supply. Failure to do this could, at Seller’s discretion, void the Warranty on that equipment, including the parts and components thereof. No allowance will be made for any expenses incurred by Purchaser in repairing, replacing or supplying any defective or missing parts or components without the express written permission of Seller.
Exclusivity of Warranty
This Warranty is expressly made in lieu of all other warranties, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Seller does not warrant the finished products of the equipment in any way.
Limitation of Liability
Seller has no liability for any damages which may result from delays in delivery. Purchaser shall review the production of the equipment regularly and stop operating the equipment should there be any issue with the equipment. Seller is not liable for scrap created by poor monitoring of the equipment.
Seller is not liable for scrap loss, nor is it responsible for performance of Purchaser’s employees, which results in scrap product or performance less than quoted.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF SELLER, ON ALL CLAIMS OF ANY KIND ACCRUING DURING ANY CALENDAR YEAR, WHETHER IN CONTRACT (INCLUDING LIQUIDATED DAMAGES), WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF THE PERFORMANCE OR BREACH OF THE PURCHASE ORDER OR THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OR THE USE OF ANY EQUIPMENT OR THE PROVISION OF ANY SERVICES, SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT TO BE PAID BY PURCHASER UNDER THE PURCHASE ORDER. In no event shall Seller be liable for special, incidental or consequential damages, including but not limited to, loss of good will, loss of profit or loss of use, for any breach of the provisions of the Warranty or otherwise with respect to the supply, manufacture, sale, purchase, use, performance or operation of the Equipment. In no event shall Seller be liable for the merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or any other obligation with regard to finished product produced by the machine.

The remedies provided in favor of Seller are cumulative and in addition to all other rights and remedies provided in these terms and conditions or existing at law or in equity.
Any legal action or arbitration proceeding by purchaser under the order or in connection with this policy must be commenced no later than 1 year after the breach or other event giving rise to purchaser’s claim occurs, or purchaser becomes aware of the existence (or facts and circumstances giving rise to the existence) of such claim, whichever occurs first.
No action taken by Seller pursuant to this policy will release Purchaser from Purchaser’s covenants, obligations and indemnities provided under this policy, including but not limited to Purchaser’s obligation for the price provided for in the purchase order.
