Peterbilt recently donated a new 365 model dump truck to the First Response Team of America, a nonprofit dedicated to filling the gap between disaster onset and arrival of relief. First Response Team says it will use the truck to remove debris, carry equipment, clear roads and recover lost items. The truck has been optimized for maneuverability and features an all-aluminum cab, air-craft grade fasteners, bulkhead-style doors and pod headlamps with halogen reflector technology for nighttime visibility.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
