Altec Industries is recalling 195 AH75, AH85 and AH100 Aerial Devices that are at risk for unexpected movement because of faulty hydraulic pressure control valves, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recalled aerial devices are in the 2010-2015 model years. They were manufactured from Jan. 10, 2008, to Dec. 31, 2015.

“The affected units have a hydraulic pressure control valve that may allow the aerial device to move even when not told to do so,” NHTSA said on its website. “An aerial device that moves unexpectedly increases the risk of injury to the operator.”

Altec dealers will replace the hydraulic pressure control valves, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Feb. 8.

Device owners can reach Altec customer service at (205) 991-7733.
