E-One Inc. is recalling 196 2014- to 2016-model year Typhoon, Quest, and Cyclone fire trucks equipped with aerial ladders, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
Because of a design change, the filter for the aerial ladder may leak hydraulic fluid. “A hydraulic fluid leak can cause a loss of aerial device function, increasing the risk of injury,” NHTSA warned on its website.
The trucks at issue were manufactured Jan. 1, 2014, to Oct. 11, 2016.
E-One dealers will inspect and replace the filter and head assembly, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Dec. 26. Truck owners can reach E-One customer service at (800) 627-5050.
