WASHINGTON — Spartan Motors USA (Spartan) is recalling 2014-2017 Spartan Gladiator and MetroStar emergency response vehicles equipped with Hale pressure relief valves in the water pumps used for fire fighting. Rings securing the valves may corrode over time after exposure to water, causing the ring to fail and the pressure relief valve to open, reducing the water pressure available for fire fighting.
Spartan will notify owners and Hale service providers will install a remedy kit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1.800.543.5008 or Hale customer service at 1.800.533.3569.
Spartan’s number for this recall is 17028.
