Terex has announced a recall for potentially defective equipment.

The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2001-2003 XT52, XT55 and XT60 aerial devices. The affected trucks have aerial devices that may have been built with lower booms made with material of insufficient strength.

Booms made from weaker materials may crack and fail, increasing the risk of injury to the boom operator or those nearby.

The manufacturer is including about 1,300 aerial devices in its recall.

Terex will notify owners, but has not yet provided a notification schedule. Dealers will inspect the lower boom to verify that it was made with the correct material. Any boom that was made with an improper material will be replaced, free of charge.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Terex customer service at (800) 982-8975.
