April 10, 2012 – From the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the States, we’ve learned Altec Industries is recalling certain model year 1993-2004 AA755 and AA755L vehicles because continuous overloading or side loading of the booms could cause the lower boom to crack near the lower boom pivot.
Continued use could cause the boom to fail, increasing the risk of injury to people or property below. About 1222 units are potentially affected by this recall.
Altec says it will notify owners and provide a boom stiffener kit. Altec has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact the company at (877) 462-5832.
