Lawn-Boy Has Recalled Walk-Behind MowersSep 4, 2002 | Safetyalerts.com
Lawn-Boy Inc. has recalled about 36,000 Lawn-Boy walk-behind mowers. The vendor who manufactured the mulch plates for Lawn-Boy used the wrong material, making the plates brittle and easy to crack or break if struck by a stone or stick while mowing. Objects coming through a broken plate or pieces of the plate could possibly injure the operator or bystanders.
Lawn-Boy has received five reports of broken mulch plates. No injuries or property damage have been reported.
The recall includes 21-inch Lawn Boy Easy Mulch Silver, Silver Pro and GoldPro Series walk-behind lawn mowers. The mowers have the words "EASY MULCH" printed on the top of the mulch cover plate in bold black letters. A model and serial plate is located on the right rear of the mower housing.
