Terex is recalling 2011-2015 model-year Hi-Ranger SCM48, SCM50 and SCM55 aerial devices because of a problem tied to their leveling systems, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
The recalled aerial devices were manufactured from Aug. 24 to Nov. 5 in 2015. They have a leveling cylinder linkage that can be forced past its intended stop position, causing damage to the leveling system, according to NHTSA.
“If the leveling system fails, the aerial platform may tilt, increasing the risk of injury to the user or those nearby,” NHTSA said on its website. Terex dealers will install a stop to prevent excessive cylinder linkage movement.
Terex will notify owners, and dealers will install a stop to prevent excessive cylinder linkage movement, free of charge. This recall is expected to began February. Only 73 units are affected..
Aerial device owners can reach Terex customer service at (800) 982-8975. Terex’s number for this recall is SN627.
