What are the defects?

The mounting bolts and nuts that are used to secure the axle assembly to the frame of the brush chipper may not have been tightened correctly. If the axle mounting bolts loosen, this could result in the axle separating from the brush chipper.

What are the hazards?

If the axle separates from the brush chipper whilst the trailer is being towed, this will result in a loss of stability and control, increasing the risk of an accident and serious injury or death to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Vermeer will contact all affected owners in writing. Owners should contact Vermeer Australia to make arrangements for repairs to be carried out, free of charge.
