04/01/2011 // Greensboro, NC, USA // Personal Injury Lawyers News // Nicole Howley

Bloomington, MN — The Toro Company, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada have voluntarily recalled about 3700 Toro Z Master ZRT Mowers in the U.S. and 109 mowers in Canada for injury hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 30, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the mowers with the optional deluxe seat have an operator presence switch built into the seat, which may activate the mower when the operator leaves the seat. This poses an injury hazard to the consumer or anyone in the vicinity of the mower.

“These mowers are large commercial duty ZRT (zero radius turn) mowers with 52” to 72” cutting decks. They have light gray seats with an adjustment knob in the front of the bottom of the seat,” reported the CPSC press release.

The following model numbers and serial numbers are involved in the recall:

• Model Number: 74264

• Serial Numbers: 260000001-260999999

• Model Number: 74265

• Serial Numbers: 260000001-260999999
