RECALL: Utility Vehicle Rollover Protection Poses Hazard
December 26, 2018 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Kawasaki has recalled about 1,000 Mule Pro utility vehicles across the 2018 and 2019 model years. The rollover protection structure on the vehicles can fail, posing an injury hazard. No incidents or injuries have been reported to the company at the time of the recall, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall 19-722.
The recalled Mule Pros were sold between August 2018 and September 2018 in black, green, white, red, bronze, silver, camo and blue. They have side-by-side seating for three to six people and automotive style controls, as well as a rear cargo box. See the recall notice for affected vehicle identification numbers, which are located on the steel frame between the right front lower A-arm mounts.
The company advises facility managers affected by this recall to stop using the vehicles immediately and contact a Kawasaki dealer for a free repair. Kawasaki can be reached at (866) 802-9381 and at www.Kawasaki.com.
