MEC was recently informed about recall for inspection of the Mammut Alugator Ride SE Shovel, which was included in the Mammut Barryvox Tour Snow Safety Package. Some production dates (listed in the link below) of these shovels may have an issue where the retention pin in the shaft does not fully engage with the hole in the shovel blade, which can result in the blade detaching during use.
Mammut is asking that you inspect your shovel according to the instructions in this link. If your shovel is from an affected production date and does not pass the inspection detailed in the link, please follow the instructions on Mammut’s website to have the shovel sent to their distributor to resize the hole on the shovel blade.
If you have further questions, please contact us at 1.888.847.0770 (ask for returns) or chat with us online.
