Affected products

2014 | TEREX | AL5 LIGHT TOWER

Issue

On certain light towers, the lower section of the fuel tank was built with insufficient structural support. This could result in deformation of the fuel tank when filled with fuel, which could cause the fuel tank to make contact with the trailer axle. An impact between the fuel tank and trailer axle could result in a hole, and fuel could leak. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers and/or owners will inspect and add structural support for the lower section of the fuel tank and if necessary, replace the fuel tank.
