Altec Recalling 1,145 Aerial Devices

November 07, 2013

Altec Industries is recalling 1,145 2010-2013 model-year aerial devices mounted on Ford Super Duty Chassis equipped with 6.8L gas engines and Muncie FR67 power take-offs (PTO).

The recall covers vehicles with one of the following aerial device models: AT200A, AT235, AT235P, AT30-G, AT35-G, AT37-G, AT40-G and AT237. In the affected vehicles, oil may leak from the PTO pressure switch onto a thermal blanket covering the exhaust. Combined with heat from the exhaust, this leaked oil poses a fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

To remedy the problem, Altec dealers will replace the pressure switch and thermal blanket with the kit identified by Muncie. There will be no charge for this service. The recall was expected to get under way early this month.

Altec can be reached at 1-877-462-5832. The recall number is CSN 583.
