Altec Industries Inc. is recalling 718 2011-2015 model-year DC610 and DSC6 Brush Chippers because they may have improper or missing welds, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.
Additionally, the DSC6 chippers may be equipped with incorrect anvil spacers.
“Improper or missing welds and/or incorrect anvil spacers may cause the anvil to detach and interfere with the cutting blades, significantly damaging the chipper and increasing the risk of injury,” NHTSA said on its website.
Altec dealers will inspect and repair any of the missing or incorrect anvil welds, and will replace the improper anvil spacers. There will be no charge for these services.
The recall is expected to begin Jan. 5, 2016. Owners can reach Altec customer service at (800) 860-0183. Altec’s number for this recall is CSN 626.
