A pair of manufacturers have issued recalls for trucks with cranes that may pose a danger to others on the road.

First, Elpers Truck Equipment is recalling about 35 model year 2013-2016 Peterbilt 337, International 4300, 4400, Maxforce, Dodge 5500, and Ford F-450, and F-550 trucks equipped with IMT cranes, models 6000, 7500, 8600, 9500, 10000, 12000, and 14000. The affected cranes have a valve bank cover that may crack and fall from the crane during transport.

Legacy Equipment Company (LEC) is recalling about 50 model year 2013-2016 Dominator-Propane, Dominator I, Dominator II, Dominator III, and Dominator IV trucks equipped with the same IMT cranes.

If the valve bank cover detaches from the crane it could be a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

Elpers and LEC will notify owners, and dealers will replace the valve bank cover, with a thicker gauge cover, free of charge. The recalls are expected to begin in May 2016.

Owners with questions about these recalls can contact Elpers at (877) 244-4596 and LEC at (801) 975-0400.
