Elgin Sweeper Co. is recalling 66 Megawind MX street sweepers in the 2009-2015 model years because their booms might detach, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall involves Megawind MX trucks manufactured from Jan. 1, 2009, to Feb. 4 of this year. These street sweepers have boom-mounting pins that may lose their retaining pins, allowing the mounting pins to move out of position and the boom to move.

Elgin dealers will make an inspection and replace the mounting pins and retainers with a revised mounting pin, free of charge.

Truck owners can reach Elgin customer service at (877) 342-5374.
