McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing is recalling 809 2010-2015 model-year Zero Radius (ZR) Side-Loader Refuse Trucks – Model 48 – because of faulty air-actuated transit arm latches, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
These recalled trucks were manufactured from Jan. 1, 2010, to April 10 of this year. The air-actuated transit arm latch might loosen over time and cause an unintentional release. As a result, the arm might extend beyond the overall width of the vehicle and cause a crash, NHTSA said.
McNeilus fleet service technicians will install a new a chain-style transit arm latch that will keep the arm from drifting. There will be no charge for this service.
The recall is expected to begin this month. Truck owners can reach McNeilus customer service at (888) 686-7278. McNeilus’ number for this recall is VSR-TSB-008.
