Stellar Industries Issues Recall of Cranes Due to Potential Valve Failure
the proportional control valve may turn into a projectile
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.
