RECALL: Riding Mower Recalled Due to Laceration Hazard
December 12, 2017 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Bush Hog HDE riding lawn mowers have been recalled by the manufacturer because the mower blade can separate from the spindle, posing a laceration hazard.
The company is aware of two incidents involving blade disengagement, though no injuries were reported, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall number 18-036.
About 500 recalled Bush Hog Zero Turn Radius (ZTR) HDE riding lawn mowers were manufactured on or before August 4, 2017. The manufacturing date is located on a plate on the right rear frame, underneath the fender. Mowers with a yellow bolt fastening the blade to the spindle have already been repaired.
Facility managers affected by the recall are directed to stop using the mowers and contact a Bush Hog dealer for a free repair. For more information, contact Bush Hog at 877-873-0145 or www.bushhog.com and click “Safety.”
