Vermeer Manufacturing Company is recalling 20 model year 2021 BC900XL brush chipper trailers.

The mounting bolts that secure the axle assembly to the mainframe structure of the brush chipper may not have been tightened properly.

Loose axle mounting bolts may result in the axle separating from the brush chipper, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Vermeer will notify owners, and dealers will replace the mounting bolts and tighten them to the correct torque specification free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 20, 2021.

Owners may contact Vermeer customer service at (800) 829-0051 ext. 7060. Vermeer's number for this recall is IK4005.
