Terex South Dakota is recalling 465 2008-2015 model-year TLM37, TLM37P, TLM39, TLM41, TLM50, TLM55 and TLLM60 aerial devices, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The aerial devices at issue were manufactured from June 18, 2008, to Sept. 28, 2015.

On these devices, both the boom tip leveling cylinder and the master cylinder at the elbow may make contact with the structural components. This could potentially damage the boom tip leveling cylinder rod eye and the master cylinder rod eye, NHTSA reported. Repeated contact may result in the rod eyes cracking.

“This cracking can lead to the failure of the boom tip leveling cylinder rod eye and the platform tilting unexpectedly which could cause the occupants to fall from the aerial platform, increasing their risk of injury,” NHTSA said on its website.

To resolve the problem, Terex dealers will modify the aerial devices to prevent the components from making contact. Device owners can reach Terex customer service at (800) 982-8975. Terex’s number for this recall is SN621.
