Altec is recalling certain 2016-2019 D2/3/4B, DLB, DMB, DHB, DT65, and DT80 digger derrick vehicles. The outrigger valves may be plumbed incorrectly, and the outriggers could continue retracting after an operator has stopped controlling them. If the outriggers continue to retract without command, the unit may become unstable and collapse, increasing the risk of injury or death to those nearby.
Altec will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the outrigger valve plumbing correcting it as necessary. Owners may contact Altec customer service at 1-877-462-5832. Altec’s number for this recall is CSN 739. The recall is expected to begin December 5.
