Briggs & Stratton has recalled about 2,800 Simplicity-branded zero-turn mowers and garden tractors due to potential failures of the chute deflector.
The chute deflector is intended to prevent projectiles from being ejected. No injuries related to the deflector problem have been reported as yet.
Zero-turn riding mowers, garden tractors and mower deck attachments that range from 44 to 54 inches are produced under the Simplicity brand and subject to the recall.
The units were sold nationwide from August 2014 to May 2015 at Briggs & Stratton dealers at prices ranging from $3,600 to $16,000. If you own one of the recalled products, stop using the item and contact a Briggs & Stratton dealer for a free repair.
