Altec Industries Inc. is recalling 724 2005-2013 model-year Altec Crane Telescopic Jibs manufactured from March 1, 2005 to Aug. 30, 2013.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports the cranes are at risk for unexpected movement when the limiting pin is not inserted in the correct position. Such unrestricted movement increases the risk for operator injury, NHTSA said.
Altec dealers will install a retrofit kit designed to help operators insert the pin in the proper position. There will be no charge for the kit installation.
The recall is expected to begin March 3.
