Important Safety Recall

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL: 2011 COMMERCIAL ZERO TURN MOWER FUEL TANK ASSEMBLIES

This is to inform you of a potential safety issue on certain 2011 TANK commercial zero turn series mowers. Cub Cadet has determined that the grommet used to secure and seal the vent valve into the top of the fuel tanks may lose its seal and allow fuel to leak during operation of the mower. If this occurs, there is a possibility of serious personal injury and/or property damage. For your information, Cub Cadet has reported this matter to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and has requested a Fast Rack Recall. The Fast Track recall will allow us to initiate an acceptable Corrective Action Plan on an expedited basis.
