Altec Industries is recalling certain 2017-2020 DT65-H and DT65-E vehicles due to the fact the capacity placard plate could pinch an operator's hand as the boom is raised, in addition to certain 2017-2019 DC1317 and DRM12 chippers equipped with a gasoline engine, as the flexible section of the exhaust pipe may separate, creating an exhaust gas leak.
Altec will notify owners, and owners will receive instructions to relocate the placard plate from the left-hand control pod to the right-hand control pod, or to replace the flex pipe, free of charge.
The recalls are expected to begin April 29, 2021. Owners may contact Altec customer service at 1-877-462-5832. Altec's number for the the capacity placard plate recall is CSN 800, and CSN 802 for the flexible section of the exhaust pipe.
