Terex Advance is issuing a recall for vehicles with potentially compromised steering.

The heavy equipment manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2011-2015 FD4000B, FD5000D, FD6000B, and FD7000B concrete mixers. The affected vehicles have steerable tag axles operated by Eaton Hydraulics S26 Gear Pumps.

These gear pumps may unexpectedly fail, reducing the ability to properly steer the vehicle. The loss of steering ability may increase the risk of a crash.

Terex is recalling almost 300 vehicles in connection with this defect.

Terex will notify owners, and dealers will replace the S26 gear pumps, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Terex customer service at (800) 433-6691.
