Stoughton recalls hopper trailers over structural problems

| Friday, February 19, 2016

Stoughton Trailers has recalled certain grain hopper trailers due to a structural issue, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

More specifically, certain 2009-2010 Grain Hopper Trailers manufactured Dec. 17, 2007, to Dec. 1, 2009, are affected. Trailers being recalled have an incorrectly positioned panel in the hopper assembly or the lower part of the cargo area of the trailer.

The panel can potentially separate, resulting in cargo spilling out of the trailer. Affected trailers may also have a major structural failure. The defective panels increase the risk of a crash.

Owners of affected trailers will be notified by Stoughton. Dealers will reinforce the hopper connections free of charge. Notification schedules are yet to be announced. For more questions, contact Stoughton customer service at 608-873-2555.
