Lawn Tractor Recall

Kohler has announced a recall of 10,000 engines for tractor lawn mowers. Apparently, a wire connector on the lawn mower’s engine can become disconnect, causing the operator’s seat switch to fail.” The concern here is obvious: if the switch fails, the blades on the mower will not stop.

This recall involves Kohler Courage twin-cylinder engines sold with three brands of lawn tractors: Husqvarna, Cub Cadet, and Troy-Bilt. The tractor’s engines that are subject to this recall have serial numbers with the first five digits beginning with 41028 through 41056. Serial numbers can be found on the black engine cover.

These tractors just came out on the market in February at Lowe’s, Tractor Supply Company stores, and by authorized Cub Cadet dealers.
