Morbark is recalling more than 2,700 model year 2009-2016 Beever wood chipper trailers. The affected trailers are missing reflex reflectors.

As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Without reflectors, the wood chipper trailer may be less visible to other traffic, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin October 3, 2016.

Morbark will notify owners and provide them with reflectors to install, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Morbark customer service at (517) 866-2381.
