DEFECT #2 - STRUCTURE:BODY Posted on: 2010-04-13Description
Vactor is recalling certain model year 1992 through 2010 model 2103 sewer cleaners manufactured between december 1992 and march 2010. The hair pin of the mounting pin that attaches the debris body hoist (dump) to the sub-frame is not sufficient to retain the mounting pin for the entire life expectancy of the vehicle. Consequence
If the hair pin comes out of the retaining pin, the retaining pin can work itself out of the mount. Should this occur while the dump body is in the up position, it could tilt over backwards, possibly injuring the operator or personnel near the vehicle.Corrective Action
Vactor will notify owners and replace the hair pin with a cotter pin free of charge. The safety recall began on may 14, 2010. Owners may contact vactor at 1-847-622-7069.Notes
