Altec Industries, Inc. "Altec" is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 AH75, AH85, and AH100 Aerial Devices manufactured October 2009 through December 2012. The affected devices may allow electricity to be conducted through the boom due to water entering into the fiberglass layers. Additionally, the joint connecting the fiberglass insert and the steel boom components may fail.


A fiberglass lower boom insert that can conduct electricity increases the risk of electrocution to the operator should the boom contact a power line. If the joint between the fiberglass insert and the steel boom component fails, the boom may fall, putting the operator at an increased risk of injury.


Altec will notify owners, and dealers will do supplemental dielectric testing and replace the lower boom, free of charge. Owners may contact Altec customer service at 1-877-462-5832. Altec's number for this recall is CSN 598.


Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 'TTY 1-800-424-9153', or go to
