Unstable Boom Lifts Prompt Recall Announcement from Genie
Genie Industries has announced a recall for potentially dangerous heavy equipment.
The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2016 TZ 34/20 trailer-mounted boom lifts. The affected lifts have bolts that attach the turntable to the rotation bearing that may not have been properly tightened.
If the bolts are not properly tightened, they may shear and the platform can fall, increasing the risk of injury.
Genie is including six boom lifts in its recall.
The company will notify owners, and dealers will correctly tighten the bolts attaching the turntable to the rotation bearing, free of charge. The manufacturer has contacted the affected owners.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Genie customer service at (800) 536-1800.
