Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
A limited amount of Carina mobile lifts have been delivered with a too small locking pin. If a locking pin smaller than the correct size is mounted on the Carina mobile lift, the locking pin is likely to cause increased wear on the plastic bushings. In case of continued use, these components may cause wear on the metal of the piston rod eye.
