On the heels of a John Deere Lawn Tractor recall comes another riding mower recall from Kubota Manufacturing Company, this time due to a fire hazard.
In cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Kubota has voluntarily recalled 6,100 Kubota Riding Mowers. The product was sold through dealers from April 2010 to April 2011 for about $3,600 to $11,500. The issue is with the fuel hose clamp, which can become detached from the fuel filter, allowing gas to leak, which could lead to a fire. No injuries have currently been reported.
The mowers are all bright orange, and have 48, 54, or 60-inch wide decks. The Kubota logo is printed on the engine cover or behind the driver’s seat on the right side. The serial number is on the left or right front frame. You can find the affected serial number range at this website.
If you purchased one of these products, call Kubota before using it again to arrange for a free inspection and repair.
