Altec, a manufacturer of bucket trucks and other machinery, has issued a recall for AA755 and AA755L vehicles. The recall is applicable to the models in question from 1993 to 2004. The recall is due to the possible failure of the lower boom when continuously overloaded, or when side-loaded. The failure of the boom is a potential risk to the safety of people nearby. Altec is providing a stiffening kit to rectify the problem, according to news reports.
