June 21, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V483000

Loss of Brake Pressure/FMVSS 121

Loss of service brake pressure can increase the risk of a crash.


NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V483

Manufacturer Altec Industries Inc.


Potential Number of Units Affected 957



Altec Industries Inc. (Altec) is recalling certain 2003-2019 Altec TA45, TA50, TA55, TA60, L37, L39, LRV, LR7, A-T40C, T40P and AP45 vehicles equipped with air-cushioned pintle hitch and/or accessory air components. The accessories utilizing chassis air supply may be missing pressure protection valves. The accessory lines may not prevent service brake line pressure loss due to failure or leakage in the accessory air system. Additionally, the air cushioned pintle hook may have been connected to the incorrect air lines. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems."



Altec will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the pressure protection installation and repair any unit that does not pass inspection, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 14, 2019. Owners may contact Altec customer service at 1-877-462-5832. Altec's number for this recall is CSN 724.



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.
