our through prior XXXX look which I XXXX, here. me little us the give background And the XX% revenue Manitowoc, comes revenue overall, averaged the that high the from If $X.X you XXXX revenue, been and to years have if out, it year, and XXXX of let a the at If took standalone out, becoming crane year on is low XXXX all a a I would implied fact, guidance billion, average, business billion. reduction. crane year In from I to at $X.XXX for with company. roughly average I just those

much come time, the in mentioned, look when to higher. pinpoint, the at got and Now, years you it’s of I fruition, because that back could XX% I has point that's reduction the to at in activity some just economy, that amount to wish compared I

would -- at exactly finger I that in on point simple time, between core you back in point wish, that do in over could the based what a going billion mean the wish on is. to $X see So, X.X incremental us, the my structure I get are where and to our the math put to $X business.

question go Our comes Shlisky Dougherty of next Mike ahead. from Company. & Please

Mike Shlisky

earlier So, to wanted up business follow question to the then. your did you answer to I XXXX, Jamie's to and about average prior since

you I of that think key so, decade or ‘XX had at kind portion in lowest much to of spinoff, the -- categories. in and of started point the period of share market share you since prior and kind for good higher you’re the a certain

years. X the So, be to back that over sounds billion couple like is, improvement share of the my mean, might I some of part question ramp it next

any could So, heavier categories, far as you give how for us you so will? key has in this share in your if year comments certain trended to perhaps

Barry Pennypacker

invested In returned historical areas highs. our share where have technology, to has we in

Mike Shlisky

In every category? single

Barry Pennypacker

it’s points, new how tell points. of we a basis the is lost, there even we of experience, points, lot have where you but I say take product going basis many development, not claims truck can’t to bps our if because it’s areas business dedicated for In percentage but I’m

new new which on invested We’re we’ll to be will in TMSXXX, which back that because a the highs carry the carried historical six TMSXXXX, in introducing the next months. to TMS we on

in have different only perspective than aftermarket much when we November XXXX, a we but standpoint, a from technology of from in absolutely here overall from standpoint, So, historical from Not overall and overall XXXX. an -- where of standpoint, your at response competitive correct. company is today, this a were are we standpoint. share But a sitting market January

in draw to XX% a my is less. that conclusion degradation that due opinion, That market share period So, the false. is over of revenue you cannot,

Mike Shlisky

efforts wanted more doing. I go is hear. also tell about carrying think? there year to yet ask, good gone really this to is whether Can it on wasn’t That that’s to you as to been you the parts the much Okay. us how crane discussed XXXX in and call you’ve

Barry Pennypacker

I continual Mike, Yes. process. that’s think a

time make continue parts quicker fill We rates strides at to overall response business. and of looking then when our profitability

deliver I’d with And that outcome. that very the believe same. to is we we're more say So, XXXX going pleased XXXX the

Operator

of Our question Baird. go ahead. comes Mig from next Please Dobre

Mig Dobre

Thank taking you a quick thinking backlog that the you're Hey. levels minimal proper need I'm backlog. of order have for follow-up. I production to on you be my do question how about point? in orders is erode amount go essentially production don't progress, there backlog to certain you on planning, And make particular how mind -- depending a past that -- able to wondering at don't where in sure you have to the you're adjusting you

David Antoniuk

today, at question. we in you at look $XXX million this are time. great when I Mig, at a obviously, it's our backlog So, mean, point

orders when see year-end $XXX point, generally and we to wait at million. QX low I how that say our when going was we're come. think, look at XXXX, I you were our

You idea revenues, where our line to kind going be. top our revenues of an have

near ability being react quickly anywhere obviously, low. anticipate orders in the the we don't continues, trend If conversely. as if up is we need. to we as we there, can in ramp pickup But So, react XXXX have there and the

we So, whether the levers in sense down go to regard. that pull that we up I think, or good have it's in

Mig Dobre

revenues year-to-date see have been ran look, orders. But, shakes your stating the and has backlog wise. we’ll well are your where the order down I Right. fourth coming obvious, of out mean, ahead quarter exactly

close thinking we you're in So, to providing orders to is somewhere But, happened guidance. say XXXX were, revenues XX up end should being that not what's are basically where that XXXX probably be backlog? it fair to given going to

David Antoniuk

fourth we I assumption until willing to the in that I'm that what think a quarter. make. again, that not But an make see statement, could one as is happens

I here of we than multiple XXXX year, next those in a we’ll call position today. And at sitting we all December have different plans to better and XX think, have for are much plans in be those. assumptions

Mig Dobre

around a of looking sort mathematical a question, decremental at EBITDA it operating the fourth is just plugging assuming else the it something XX is level in My quarter. my you question call have were in looks and right in to I'm on mind? was final you're or This of Again, low-XXs should margin would. that. with do model appreciate or we I decline you on be for when assume your margin XXXX, If revenue one of guidance, decremental like margin. if that this

Barry Pennypacker

be level operating not of should within margin you decremental the No. That's XXXX.

Mig Dobre

you Can expand on that?

Barry Pennypacker

Yes.

is it, little it you decline quarter I anomaly the your when the of at think, Mig, comes when bit an a midpoint. in fourth look to

what -- that but putting that that think, million basis look quite sure range. you true in not you $X would are point But said we're look this I decrementals plan always and XXXX know at at year we've within is about I'm I looking let a February. that hold on about in you which where for quarter-over-quarter when XX% $XX is if mean plan on at the the I'm a time. EBITDA, together, down million saying we your you’re down, we’ll

Mig Dobre

that, is that's for I look, not down, hard But feel margins if to what it's mean, to trying I'm I say appreciate here. that. your volume
