Elpers Truck Equipment (Elpers) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Peterbilt 337, International 4300, 4400, Maxforce, Dodge 5500, and Ford F-450, and F-550 trucks manufactured April 4, 2013, to January 22, 2016 and equipped with IMT cranes, models 6000, 7500, 8600, 9500, 10000, 12000, and 14000.
