Pierce is recalling certain model year 2006-2008 Contender fire trucks manufactured from December 26, 2006, through March 28, 2008, equipped with a Caterpillar C9 engine due to an engine software problem which can cause the engine’s RPM’s to surge while in pump mode.
The surge can cause a fluctuation in water pressure from the fire hose and could result in personal injury.
Pierce has already remedied all of the affected vehicles by updating the engine software, therefore, owner notifications will not be sent. Owners may contact Pierce at 1-920-832-3000.
