Altec Recalls 245 Aerial-Device Trucks

September 26, 2012

WASHINGTON – Altec Industries Inc. is recalling 245 2002-2009 model-year AH75, AH85, AH100 and HL125 aerial-device vehicles equipped with 16-foot radial outriggers. 

According to the NHTSA, an improper torque was applied to the outrigger cylinder piston retention system during assembly. As a result, the cylinder could loosen from the rod, allowing the outrigger leg to protrude beyond the confines of the chassis when it is in a stowed position. If the cylinder loosens from the rod, the outrigger could potentially strike a person or property. This poses a safety risk.

To resolve the problem, Altec will increase the torque on the piston free of charge. Altec can be reached at 1-877-462-5832.
