Defect Description

Altec Industries, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2002-2009 AH75/85/100 and HL125 aerial device vehicles equipped with 16-foot radial outriggers. An improper torque was applied to the outrigger cylinder piston retention system during assembly. As a result, the cylinder could loosen from the rod allowing the outrigger leg to protrude beyond the confines of the chassis when it is in a stowed position.

Defect Consequence

If the cylinder loosens from the rod, the outrigger could strike a person or object, increasing the risk of injury or property damage.

Defect Corrective Action

Altec will notify owners, and will increase the torque on the piston free of charge. The safety recall began on November 6, 2012. Owners may contact Altec Industries at 1-877-462-5832.


Altec's recall campaign number is CSN 570. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to
