Cub Cadet recalls riding lawnmowers due to fire hazard

Cub Cadet has recalled approximately 4,300 riding lawnmowers due to a fire hazard. MTD Consumer Group Inc, of Cleveland, Ohio, manufactured the mowers.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a fuel leak can occur near the rear mounting screws on the bottom of the fuel tank, posing a fire hazard. No injuries have been reported so far.

The recalled 2011 Cub Cadet zero-turn riding lawnmowers, intended for both commercial and private use, have yellow and black steel frames.

Model number, serial number and date of manufacturer are printed on a label located under the front of the driver’s seat. The serial number range and date of manufacture (DOM) of affected mowers are 1A101ZXXXXX (DOM 01/2011) through 1C091ZXXXXX (DOM 03/2011). Date of manufacture appears on the label.

The mowers were sold by Cub Cadet dealers nationwide from February 2011 through March 2011.

The CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the mowers and store them outside. Consumers should contact their local Cub Cadet dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair.

For more information, contact Cub Cadet toll-free at (888) 848-6038, or visit the firm’s website at www.cubcadet.com.
