Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh) is recalling certain model year 2016 S-Series Front Discharge Concrete Mixers manufactured May 16, 2016, to May 25, 2016, equipped with a Cummins ISX12 or ISX15 engine using certain engine control modules (ECM). These ECM's may experience an internal electrical short that can cause a fuse to blow, resulting in an unexpected engine stall without the ability to restart the engine.
Hazard: An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Cummins will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing ECM with a new ECM, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 7, 2016. Owners may contact Oshkosh customer service at 1-888-686-7278. Owners may also contact Cummins customer service at 1-800-343-7357. Oshkosh's number for this recall is 16E047-Cummins C1792.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.go

2015-08-20 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-09-22)
Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 S-Series concrete mixers manufactured July 16, 2014, to June 30, 2015. The affected concrete mixers are powered with compressed natural gas (CNG) and are equipped with pressure relief devices (PRD) that may not function as designed, failing to vent a buildup of pressure, such as could occur if the CNG tank was exposed to fire.
Hazard: If the PRD does not activate in the event of a buildup of pressure, the CNG tank may explode, increasing the risk of fire and injury.
Remedy: Oshkosh will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the PRD's, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2015. Owners may contact Oshkosh customer service at 1-888-686-7278. Oshkosh's number for this recall is Emcara 15E-059.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2015-06-30 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-07-14)
Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh) is recalling certain model year 2015 S-Series Front Discharge concrete mixer glider trucks manufactured February 10, 2015, to March 20, 2015. The affected vehicles have Allison HD4500 transmissions that were remanufactured by Valley Truck Parts that may be coated with a thick layer of paint on the torque converter to adaptation kit mounting surface which can soften during vehicle operation. This may result in the mounting bolts loosening.
Hazard: If the mounting bolts loosen, the bolts on the torque converter bolt flange may shear, resulting in a sudden loss of drive power, and increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Oshkosh has notified owners, and Valley Truck Parts will remove the paint from the mating surface of the torque converter, and replace the bolts, free of charge. The recall began on May 8, 2015. Owners may contact Oshkosh customer service at 1-888-686-7278.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2015-06-01 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-06-27)
Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 S-Series Front Discharge Concrete Mixer vehicles manufactured February 29, 2012, to November 13, 2013, and equipped with certain Cummins Westport ISL G engines. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Hazard: If engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Remedy: Cummins will notify owners on behalf of Oshkosh, and dealers will secure the ends of the 90-degree elbow. In addition, the electronic control module (ECM) will be reprogrammed with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2015. Owners may contact Oshkosh customer service at 1-888-686-7278 or Cummins customer service at 1-800-343-7357.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2015-04-01 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-04-18)
Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 S-Series Front Discharge Concrete Mixer vehicles manufactured September 24, 2013, to November 12, 2014. The affected vehicles have air tanks that hold less than the required 12 times the combined volume of the service brake chambers. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Hazard: With the air tank volume being less than required, in certain situations the vehicle may have an insufficient quantity of air to operate the brakes, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Oshkosh will notify owners and dealers will install a larger capacity air tank, free of charge. The recall began April 15, 2015. Owners may contact Oshkosh customer service at 1-888-686-7278. Oshkosh's number for this recall is VSR-TSB-010.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation (Oshkosh) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 S-Series Ready Mixed Concrete trucks manufactured February 29, 2012, through January 27, 2014, and equipped with certain Cummins Westport Model ISL G engines. Condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.
Hazard: The improper operation of the sensor could induce elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire or burn injury to a person near the exhaust pipe.
Remedy: Cummins Inc. and Cummins Wesport Inc. will notify owners, and authorized Cummins service facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. Cummins Inc. and Cummins Westport Inc. began notifying the affected vehicle owners in April 2014. Owners may contact Oshkosh at 1-920-235-9150 or contact Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357.

Recall Summary: Oshkosh Corporation is recalling certain model year 2013 S-Series ready mixed concrete trucks manufactured May 1, 2013, through November 27, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the brake pedal bracket may loosen due to missing lock washers.
Hazard: A loose brake pedal bracket may allow the brake pedal to contact the floor of the cab, which would reduce the vehicle's braking capability and increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Oshkosh will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the brake pedal mounting assembly as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2014. Owners may contact Oshkosh at 1-888-686-7278.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
