Vermeer Recalls AX19 Brush Chipper Trailers Due to Weak Undercarriage Frame

Vermeer recalled 279 model year 2015-2021 AX19 brush chipper trailers due to potential safety risk.

A crack may develop in the undercarriage frame and cause the frame to bend.

The remedy is still under development.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed June 17, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
