Potential Number of Units Affected 3,824

 

Summary

Altec Industries, Inc. (Altec) is recalling certain 1999-2022 L Series and LR Series aerial devices. A hydraulic hose may have been installed between the cylinder port and load-holding valve instead of metallic tubing, which can result in a damaged hydraulic hose and failure of the load-holding feature.

 

Remedy

Altec will inspect the units for a hydraulic hose and replace it with specified metallic tubing, as necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed August 11, 2023. Owners may contact Altec customer service 1-877-462-5832. Altec’s number for this recall is CSN 3090.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.

 


Chronology :

In 2021, Altec identified units in production with hydraulic hoses installed in locations where metallic tubing was specified. A production change was made to improve the manufacturability of the assemblies. In 2022 production continued to report difficulty with the assemblies. On September 8, 2022, a potential field action investigation was opened to determine if improper assemblies had reached the field. The investigation resulted in service instructions being launched on November 8, 2022, to collect data on the units in the field to determine the potential affected population. On May 16, 2023, the data collection work was closed after the required level of information was collected. The collected data was reviewed to determine affected units’ assemblies, unit models, and production dates. On June 9, 2023, Altec determined a defect was present on a specific population of aerials that might not comply with aerial device standards and a field campaign was required. There were no warranty claims or field reports identified. There have been no accidents, injuries or deaths related to this issue.
