Altec Recalls Crane Jibs for Injury Risk

February 24, 2015

Altec Industries Inc. is recalling 724 2005-2013 model-year Altec Crane Telescopic Jibs because they’re at risk for unexpected movement when the limiting pin isn’t inserted in the correct position, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

Such unrestricted movement increases the risk for operator injury, NHTSA said. The recall covers telescopic jibs manufactured from March 1, 2005, to Aug. 30, 2013.

To address the safety issue, Altec dealers will install a retrofit kit designed to help operators insert the pin in the proper position. There will be no charge for the kit installation.

The recall is expected to begin March 3.

Altec customer service can be reached at (877) 462-5832. Altec’s number for this recall is CSN 610.
