Vermeer is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 single axle brush chipper trailers because the axle mounting bolts could loosen, leading to axle separation from the brush chipper.
If the axle separates from the brush chipper, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Vermeer will notify owners, and dealers will replace the mounting bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, August 24, 2012. Owners may contact Vermeer at 641-628-3141.
