Defect Description

Terex South Dakota, Inc. (Terex) is recalling certain model year 2009-2013 LT38, LT40, LTM40, NT29, TL37, HR40, L13i, and TPL40 aerial devices manufactured on 2009-2013 Ford F-350, F-450, or F-550 Super Duty chassis with a 6.8L engine, and equipped with certain Muncie Power Products PTO Assemblies. In the affected vehicles, oil may leak from the PTO pressure switch onto a thermal blanket covering the exhaust.

Defect Consequence

The leaking oil may soak into the thermal blanket covering the exhaust, which when combined with heat from exhaust, may result in an increased risk of fire.

Defect Corrective Action

Terex will notify owners, and dealers will install a new pressure switch kit that moves the switch away from the exhaust system, free of charge. The recall began in September 15, 2014. Owners may contact Terex customer service at 1-605-882-4000. Terex's number for this recall is SN611.
