Defect SummaryTranscraft is recalling certain model year 2010 and 2011 platform semi-trailers manufactured from october 15, 2010, through january 31, 2011, and equipped with gunite automatic slack adjusters. due to an incomplete knitting of the iron at the time of casting, inadequate structural integrity of the slack adjuster housing can occur, which could cause the housing to break at the handle under normal operating loads.
Consequence SummarySlack adjusters with this flow notch could crack under normal braking conditions causing loss of braking which could result in a vehicle crash.
Corrective SummaryTranscraft will notify owners and the slack adjusters will be replaced free of charge. the safety recall is expected to begin during october 2011. owners may contact accuride at 1-812-962-5000 or transcraft at 1-877-489-9020.
