Load Trail is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 81.5 x 22 Triple Axle Tilt Deck trailers.

The impacted trailers have weld joints that may crack where the front bumper, frame, and the stationary deck are joined.

If the welds fail, the equipment may disengage from the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recalled trailers were manufactured from January 1, 2014 to January 1, 2016, and sold through Altec for use in transporting TDA58 Articulating Telescopic Aerial Devices.

The recall process is expected to begin on September 20, 2016.

Load Trail will notify owners, and dealers will repair the weld joints on the trailers, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, owners may contact Load Trail customer service at (800) 650-5194.
