Issue

On certain truck-mounted telescopic articulating aerial devices, the outrigger cylinder piston retention system may not have been sufficiently tightened during the assembly process. As a result, the cylinder could loosen from the rod, allowing an outrigger leg in the stowed position to protrude beyond the confines of the chassis. As such, the outrigger could strike a vehicle, stationary object, or a bystander, causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will tighten the outrigger cylinder piston retention system to the specified torque.
