Stoughton Trailers is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 AHV grain hauler/ag hopper trailers produced December 17, 2007, through October 28, 2010. These trailers may develop fatigue cracks in the lower rail of the frame structure and/or in the front attachment of the suspension subframe channels.
Structural cracks could eventually compromise the structure and lead to failure. This could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Stoughton Trailers will notify owners and will replace the suspension subframe front attachments as well as the crossmember assembly forward of the front hopper, free of charge. The recall began on March 27, 2013. Owners may contact Stoughton Trailers at 1-608-873-2555.
