Vermeer Manufacturing subsidiary Vac-Tron Equipment is recalling 150 model year 2016-2020 CS870GT, CS873GT, LP Mini 373 DT, and LP Mini 373 GT Vacuum Excavator trailers.
The front clearance lamps may be positioned improperly and an insufficient amount of conspicuity tape may have been applied on the sides and rear. Additionally, side or rear reflex reflectors may also be missing.
Improper position of the lamps, insufficient reflective tape, and lack of reflectors may reduce the visibility of the vacuum excavator trailer, increasing the risk of a crash.

This recall is expected to begin July 13, 2020.
