A utility equipment manufacturer has announced a recall for defective aerial devices.

The recall from Terex South Dakota applies to certain model year 2011-2015 SCM48, SCM50, and SCM55 aerial devices. The affected vehicles have a leveling cylinder linkage that can be forced past its intended stop position, causing damage to, and failure of, the leveling system.

If the leveling system fails, the aerial platform may tilt, increasing the risk of injury to the user or those nearby.

The manufacturer is including about 75 vehicles in its announcement.

Terex will notify owners, and dealers will install a stop to prevent excessive cylinder linkage movement, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in February 2016.

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