Chronology :

Doosan Bobcat North America, Inc. received a field report on 10/4/2023 of a portable generator with both electric brake and battery disconnect options that had the electric brake harness connected to the positive distribution post of the battery disconnect switch instead of the positive battery cable terminal.

Based on the field report, Doosan Bobcat North America, Inc. initiated an internal investigation and determined a defect with the connection point of the electrical brake harness on units with both electric brakes and battery disconnect options and reported NHTSA Recall 23V859.

Further investigation revealed that the issue with the electric brake harness being connected to the positive distribution post of the battery disconnect switch extends to models G25-G50 built beginning 10/31/2015 and to model G70WDO-T4F built between 12/14/2016 and 8/31/2023.

The investigation has ruled out this issue in air compressor models and on generator models larger than G70WDO-T4F
