Summary

Caterpillar Inc. (Caterpillar) is recalling certain 2015-2019 Progress Rail 75HRT SkyTrim Hi-Rail vehicles. The boom cradle includes a support plate that may block the driver's visibility. Additionally, the slew may be insufficient, which may result in the detachment of the boom from the cradle while the vehicle is in motion.

 

Remedy

Caterpillar will notify owners, and Progress Rail dealers will relocate the boom cradle to provide visibility for the driver, and revise the boom hydraulic circuit and install a mechanical fastening strap in the event of a hydraulic system failure or leak. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Caterpillar customer service at 1-800-447-4986.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
