Firetruck-maker Sutphen has issued a recall to fix a problem with its aerial ladders. The firetrucks are being recalled because a cable failure could cause the ladder to collapse in use, “increasing the risk of injury to a user,” according to NHTSA. The recall began in November and covers trucks from the 2000 to 2014 model years. Sutphen is notifying the owners and dealers of its trucks, and will inspect and repair or replace the ladders free of charge. NHTSA said in August that two ladders fell after an earlier recall in May of last year.
