About 24,000 lawn and garden tillers have been recalled by Husqvarna Consumer Outdoor Products N.A. Inc., of Charlotte, N.C. The tiller’s transmission shift rod and clip can come into contact with the control cable during shifting and cause the tiller to unintentionally move forward or backward, posing a risk of bodily injury and/or laceration. This recall involves Ariens®, Husqvarna®, Jonsered® and Poulan Pro® brand rear tine tillers used for plowing, cultivation and ridging gardens and lawns. The tillers have an engine to power the wheels and the rear tines, an operator handle with forward and reverse transmission and tilling widths ranging from 17 to 19 inches. The brand name is printed on the side of the tiller. They were sold in red, orange and yellow/black colors. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The tillers were sold at hardware stores, home centers and independent outdoor power equipment dealers from October 2014 through May 2015 for between $600 and $850. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tiller and return it to the nearest Husqvarna dealer for a free repair.
