Summary:
      Altec is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 AC18, AC23, and AC38 cranes with front bumper outriggers mounted on Kenworth chassis between November 2010 and October 2012. The brackets that attach the outrigger to the front bumper of the chassis may be inadequate to support the full capacity of the crane in certain positions.
Consequence:
      The inadequate mounting brackets may allow the outrigger to bend, reducing the stability of the crane truck which could result in injury, death, and/or property damage.
Remedy:
      Altec will notify owners and dealers will replace the front bumper outrigger attachments. Notification to owners began on May 22, 2012. Owners may contact Altec at 1-877-462-5832. Altec's recall campaign number is CSN 573.
