Charlotte, NC-based Husqvarna Consumer Outdoor Products N.A. Inc. is recalling about 24,000 of its lawn and garden tillers after learning that the defective product’s transmission shift rod and clip can come in contact with the control cable, causing the vehicle to inadvertently move forward or backward and possibly pose risk of injuries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on July 23.
Four brands are affected by the recall: Ariens with model number A600DRT, Husqvarna with model numbers CRT900, CRT900L, DRT900, DRT900E and DRT900H, Jonsered with model number J208C14 and J208D14, and Poulan Pro with model number PRRT900. The recalled tillers were made available in red, orange, and yellow/black colors, and were sold at different hardware stores and home centers nationwide between October 2014 and May 2015.
Customers should return the product to a Husqvarna dealer for a free fix.
