Another recall has been issued for a line of vehicles that could pose a safety hazard.
This time, the recall was announced by the Vermeer Manufacturing Company on their Vermeer BC 1500 trailers that have model years between 2007 and 2012. A total of 1,770 units are affected by this particular recall.
The problem is that parts of the main frame may be welded in a way not conducive to safe operation. This issue, which would have involved an error in the vehicle’s assembly, could lead to fatigue fractures or bending that could result in the frame failing outright. Should that failure take place, property could be damaged and the risk of an individual in the vicinity incurring an injury will also increase.
Owners are being contacted by Vermeer, who have announced their intentions to make any repairs necessary without cost to the consumer. This recall is set to take place on August 10. Until that time, owners who have questions or concerns about their vehicles are being advised to contact Vermeer directly. Concerned individuals, or those who wish to report a defect, can also get in touch with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The campaign number being used for this recall is 12V260000.
