Spartan Motors is recalling certain 2004-2020 Gladiator and Spartan emergency response vehicles equipped with a pneumatically controlled automatic tire chain system. A potential 1,746 units are affected by this recall.

The service air reservoir system may not be pressure-protected where the control line for the automatic tire chain system is connected. If control line were to become severed, the service reservoir system may suddenly lose air.

Spartan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the routing of the control lines, rerouting them into the auxiliary air reservoir as necessary, free of charge.

The recall began October 4, 2019. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1-800-543-5008. Spartan's number for this recall is 19017.
