Summary:
      Spartan Motors USA "Spartan" is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Legend and Star fire trucks manufactured April 15, 2015, to April 16, 2016. The affected vehicles may be equipped with certain C20 and C21 split-shaft transmissions from Waterous. This transmission sends power to the wheels of an emergency response vehicle or powers an add-on unit such as a water pump used for fighting fires. A component within the shift unit may be damaged and as a result, the operator may not be able to switch the power output.
Consequence:
      If the power output cannot be changed, once the fire truck arrives at the scene, it may not be able to pump water to aid in extinguishing the fire, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
      Spartan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the retaining clevis pin and retaining rings, free of charge. The recall began on September 12, 2016. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1-800-543-5008. Spartan's number for this recall is 16021.
