Summary:
      Altec Industries, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2002-2009 AH75/85/100 and HL125 aerial device vehicles equipped with 16-foot radial outriggers. An improper torque was applied to the outrigger cylinder piston retention system during assembly. As a result, the cylinder could loosen from the rod allowing the outrigger leg to protrude beyond the confines of the chassis when it is in a stowed position.
Consequence:
      If the cylinder loosens from the rod, the outrigger could strike a person or object, increasing the risk of injury or property damage.
Remedy:
      Altec will notify owners, and will increase the torque on the piston free of charge. The safety recall began on November 6, 2012. Owners may contact Altec Industries at 1-877-462-5832.
