Altec is recalling certain 2016-2019 LR7 Series Aerial Devices. According to a release from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the aerial device can be operated without the rear outriggers being deployed, which may cause the unit to be unstable.
The LR7 Series consists of overcenter aerial devices designed for the tree care industry, with working heights up to 75 feet and side reaches up to 8 feet.
Altec will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and correct them to require the proper outrigger operation, as necessary, free of charge.
