What are the defects?

There is a potential defect in the bull gear, which will manifest itself as broken gear teeth under load and cause loss of engine braking.

What are the hazards?

The drive gears may fail, causing the drive system to lose the ability to brake effectively, posing a risk of injury to the operator or bystanders.

What should consumers do?

Cease use of the lawn tractor immediately and contact the place of purchase to arrange for a service appointment and have the transaxle inspected to determine if a transaxle replacement is necessary.
