These recalls come due to the possibility of a break in the roller holder of the external mast caused by repeated operation, road conditions and others. If both holders break the material handling system, including the mast, the hoist and its accessories, may drop. The company will replace the outer mast according to "Technical Instructions" from Toyota Industries Corporation.
Such recalls highlight the efforts exerted by the Authority in the field of traffic safety, and go in line with its continued concern to constantly review all products offered in the Sultanate's markets, in order to provide the necessary protection for consumers in all fields.
