The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced on Dec. 17 that it would voluntarily take a corrective action (recall) for 3,074 construction machinery and vehicles manufactured and sold by Daimler Trucks Korea and MAN Truck & Bus Korea because defects threatening safe operation were found.

A total of 703 units of construction machinery (dumping trucks) manufactured and sold by Daimler Trucks Korea were found to be unable to transmit power to the drive shaft as the pinion gear was loosened due to vibration and others. 

The recalled construction machines will be allowed to be repaired free of charge at Daimler Trucks Korea Service Center starting from Dec. 17.

Meanwhile, 1,195 dump trucks and 1,176 cars (cargo trucks and tractors) manufactured and sold by MAN Truck & Bus Korea were found to be unable to transmit power even if a driver presses the accelerator pedal, which is likely to disrupt the operation.

The relevant construction machines and cars will be allowed to be repaired free of charge at the MAN Truck & Bus Korea from Dec. 17.

"We will conduct objective and fair production defect investigation on matters reported and promptly take a corrective action when production defects occur," a ministry official said. "We will do our best to protect the lives and property of the people from safety accidents caused by such vehicles."
