May 23, 2017 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
John Deere Gator Utility Vehicles have been recalled because the dust boot on the throttle cable can come loose, causing the vehicle to not slow down or stop, posing a crash hazard.
The company has received two reports of dust boots coming loose, though no injuries have been reported, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall number 17-739.
About 8,500 vehicles in the models XUV590i or XUV590i S4 are affected. They were sold between January 2016 and March 2017.
Facility managers affected by this recall should contact a John Deere dealer for a free repair. Deere & Company can be reached at 800- 537-8233 or www.deere.com.
