Morbark is recalling more than 800 model year 2013-2016 Beever M15R and M20R wood-chipper trailers.

The stop lights and tail lights on the affected vehicles may be located too high to be easily seen. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, 'Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.'

Rear lights that cannot easily be seen increase the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin October 11, 2016.

Morbark will notify owners and dealers will install a kit that repositions the lights, free of charge.
