Coach and Equipment Mfg Corp. "Coach and Equipment" is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Phoenix, Metro Lite, Pegasus, Condor LT, and Alley Cat transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to September 18, 2014, and equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Coach and Equipment will notify owners to contact Ricon Corporation who will supply supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on October 27, 2014. Owners may contact Coach and Equipment customer service at 1-800-724-8464 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
