New York, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Toro have voluntarily recalled Toro® Z Master® Riding Mowers because of fire hazards posed by the mower. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on May 9, 2013.

The riding lawn mowers were recalled after discovering that the idler pulley can rub against the mower’s fuel tank, posing a fire hazard.

The mowers are red and black. ‘Toro’ and ‘2000 Series’ are printed on the side and ‘Z Master Commercial’ on the front of the mowers. When viewed from the operator’s seat, the model and serial numbers are on a metal plate located at the front of the mower, below the seat, on the right-hand side. The following models and corresponding serial numbers are included in this recall: model number 74141 with serial numbers ranging from 312000101 to 312000784 and 313000101 to 313000364; model number 74143 with serial numbers ranging from 312000101 to 312000881 and 313000101 to 313000432; and model number 74145 with serial numbers ranging from 312000101 to 312001178 and 313000101 to 313000443,” the CPSC reported.
