Unexpectedly Tilting Platform Prompts Aerial Device Recall
Terex has announced a recall for potentially unstable cranes.
The manufacturer is recalling certain 2008-2015 TLM37, TLM37P, TLM39, TLM41, TLM50, TLM55, and TLLM60 aerial devices. On the affected units, both the boom tip leveling cylinder and the master cylinder at the elbow may make contact with the structural components, potentially damaging important components.
Repeated contact may result in the rod eyes cracking. This cracking can cause the boom tip leveling cylinder rod eye to fail. If the platform tilts unexpectedly, workers using the device could fall from the platform.
The manufacturer is including about 465 devices.
Terex will notify owners, and dealers will modify the aerial devices to prevent the components from making contact. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Terex customer service at (800) 982-8975.
