safety recalls-min

The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2016-2020 DH-B Series, DH-E Series, and D3000-E digger derricks set up for combined use and equipped with radio remote upper controls. These units only have the derrick use capacity chart and do not have the combined use capacity chart. The operator may not have access to the rated capacity information while they are operating the equipment in combined use, increasing the risk of an injury. NHTSA says potentially 213 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Braun Northwest is recalling certain 2019-2020 RAM 4500/5500 vehicles equipped with Liquid Spring rear suspension systems. In the affected suspension systems, the rear brake caliper flexible line may have been routed so that it contacts a suspension component, possibly causing excessive wear and a loss of rear brakes. A worn rear brake line may leak fluid, resulting in a partial or complete loss of the rear brakes, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 23 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2020-2022 Freightliner Cascadia sleeper trucks equipped with Bridgestone R284, R268, or R283S ECOPIA steer axle tires in conjunction with a specific air dam. The steer tires may experience tread separation or blow-outs while driving. Tread separation and/or blow-outs while driving may result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 4,341 vehicles are affected by this recall.
