Altec Recalling Some Cranes With Telescopic Jibs

May 29, 2013

Altec Industries Inc. is recalling 56 2010-2011 model-year AC35/38 cranes equipped with 31- to 55-foot telescopic jibs built between 2010 and 2011, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The jib attachment bracket is not strong enough for some loads when the fully extended jib is lifted off the ground. If the jib fails while the crane is in operation, it could pose a safety risk to nearby workers, NHTSA said.

To remedy the problem, Altec dealers will install jib bracket reinforcement kits. Dealers will also install a kit to repair any jib bracket that is damaged.

Owners can reach Altec at 1-877-462-5832.
