What are the defects?
The reverse implement option (RIO) system can fail, posing a laceration hazard to bystanders. RIO is a safety system that shuts off power to the mower blades when the machine is placed into reverse.
What are the hazards?
Potential for laceration hazard to bystanders if the operator does not look behind before moving in reverse, and the mower blades are under power.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should contact an authorised John Deere Dealer. John Deere dealers will repair affected lawn tractors by installing new software that will disable the FIM system.
