Check your lawn tractor before mowing your lawn.
Hydro-gear is recalling about 2,700 hydrostatic lawn tractors due to a crash hazard. According to the recall, a drive gear in the transaxle can fail, causing the brakes to give way, posing a crash risk.
The recall involved certain Cub Cadet, MTD Gold and Troy-Bilt lawn tractors sold at lawn and garden retailers nationwide.
If you think your tractor could be affected, contact Hydro-gear for instructions on how to get a repair from an authorized service provider. Their number is 888-848-6038.
