Product description

Green and yellow lawn and garden tractors with “John Deere” and the model number on the side of the engine hood.
Identifying features
A small number of tractors of models X710, X730, X734, X738 and X739 with unique serial numbers are affected.
See attached list of affected serial numbers.

Reasons the product is recalled

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.

The hazards to consumers

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 consumers should 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.
