CPSC, Toro Company Recall Z-100 Riding Mowers

PRODUCT: Lawn Mowers - The Toro Company, of Bloomington, Minn., is voluntarily recalling about 400 zero turn riding lawn mowers. The 20 horsepower mowers are as follows:

Model Serial Range Description
74178 220000101-220010095 20 hp 52" cut zero-turn radius mower
74178 230000101-230000150 20 hp 52" cut zero-turn radius mower

The model number can be found on a silver identification plate attached to the frame of the lawn mower near the right hand drive wheel. Authorized Toro dealers sold these mowers nationwide from August 2001 through August 2002, with a manufacturer's suggested retail between $8306 and $8528.

PROBLEM: The engines for these products had fuel lines that were too long and could possibly droop and come in contact with moving parts that can cut the fuel lines resulting in fuel leakage.

INCIDENTS/INJURIES: Toro has received no reports of fuel leaks, fires, or injuries.

WHAT TO DO: Consumers should stop using their lawn mowers until the fuel lines can be shortened. Registered owners should already have received a letter with enclosed instruction sheet and reply card for this modification. Contact Toro at 1-800-718-8995 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for a free repair kit, or contact a Toro dealer for a free repair.
