Transport Canada Recall - 2020295 - VERMEER
Please see corrective actions section below
2020 | VERMEER | BC1500
Certain brush chipper trailers were built with wheels that have an incorrect wheel nut contact area. As a result, the wheel nuts could loosen over time and fall off. If this happens, a wheel could separate from the trailer.
A wheel separation could increase the risk of a crash. A wheel that detaches from the trailer could create a hazard for the towing vehicle occupants and other drivers and nearby people.
Vermeer will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your brush chipper to an authorized service facility to replace the wheel and tire assembly and install a new wheel/tire specification placard decal.
