RECALL: Riding Mowers Pose a Fire Hazard

Over 3,000 Kubota Zero Turn Mowers have been recalled because the throttle cable can make contact with internal electric wiring, posing a fire hazard. However, no incidents or injuries have been reported to the company at the time the recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Kubota ZD100 series gasoline-powered zero turn mowers in model years 2018 and 2019 are affected by this recall. About 3,850 units have been recalled. The units are orange and black, and they were sold between July 2018 and January 2019. For affected serial numbers, see recall 19-730.

Facility managers affected by this recall should stop using the affected units and contact a Kubota dealer for a free repair. Kubota can be reached at 800-752-0290 or online at www.kubotausa.com.
