EQUIPTER RB4000 9999
Manufacturer: New Heights LLC
New Heights LLC (New Heights) is recalling certain Equipter RB4000 dump trailers manufactured December 8, 2011, through December 21, 2011. These vehicles are equipped with Carlisle hydraulic brake actuators. One of the rotating components in the hydraulic pump for the brakes missed a heat treat operation causing the actuator to wear at a higher than normal rate. As a result, the hydraulic pump could fail and result in a loss of braking ability in the trailer.
Loss of braking ability can lead to loss of control of the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash, serious injuries, or property damage.
New Heights will notify owners, and dealers will replace the hydraulic pump actuators free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on May 15, 2013. Owners may contact New Heights at 1-717-768-0070.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153)
