Altec Industries is recalling 1,857 1999-2014 model-year aerial devices because they’re at risk for inadvertent boom movement during cool weather. 

These devices may have an improperly set hydraulic pressure transducer, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports. The transducer relieves excessive backpressure in the hydraulic tank circuit.

To resolve the problem, Altec dealers will replace and install a pressure switch. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall, which began in December, affects models A65, A70, A75, A72, A/77-T, A82-T, A72-TE88 and A77-TE93. They were manufactured from Jan. 1, 1999, to July 15 of this year, NHTSA said.

Owners can reach Altec customer service at (205) 991-7733. Altec's number for this recall is CSN 609.
