McNeilus recalls more than 3,000 trucks

Dodge Center-based McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing is recalling more than 3,000 garbage trucks for a possible problem with air tank connections.

The trucks, made in 2003, are ones built on an Autocar brand chassis.

Logo_mcneilus3-1 The problem, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration notice, stems from air tanks being relocated when the refuse body was installed on the chassis.

Possible faulty reconnection of air lines to the holdback valve could cause serious problems.

McNeilus is telling truck owners to bring in truck for a free inspection and repair, if necessary.

The issue was first reported at the end of June and the recall began this month.

McNeilus, which is an OshKosh Corp. company, makes concrete mixers and garbage trucks.

The truck maker employs about 1,200 people.

When a manufacturer has a safety problem the best thing to do is to do exactly what this company is doing. They are being responsible by calling for the recall.
