Pierce Manufacturing "Pierce" is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Enforcer, Impel, and Velocity vehicles manufactured April 12, 2016, to May 31, 2016, equipped with aerial devices. The affected vehicles may have a plastic plug installed in an unused port in the hydraulic pump for the aerial device. This plastic plug may separate from the pump resulting in a hydraulic fluid leak, potentially disabling the aerial device.
The inoperable aerial device can increase the risk of injury if the operator needs to move away from a hazardous situation or it may impede the safety mission.
Pierce has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the plastic plug with a metal plug, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on July 26, 2016. Owners may contact Pierce customer service at 1-888"-974-3723. Pierce's number for this recall is 74B276.
