September 30, 2016

Stellar Industries is recalling nearly 300 3200-series cranes. The proportional control valve on the affected cranes can fail and the valve post may eject from the valve housing.

If the valve post ejects, it may be a projectile, potentially injuring the crane operator or others nearby.

The recall is expected to begin in October 2016.

Stellar will notify owners of the recalled cranes, and dealers will install a retaining bracket to keep the valve from ejecting, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Stellar customer service at (800) 321-3741.

Stellar's reference number for this recall is TBT-1601.
