John Deere has added another vehicle to its recall list. Only a week after recalling its Gator utility vehicles, the company said certain green and yellow lawn and garden tractors pose a laceration hazard to bystanders because the reverse implement option (RIO) system that shuts off power to the mower blades when the machine is in reverse can fail. Recalled John Deere models include X710, X730, X734, X738, and X739 lawn and garden tractors with serial numbers beginning with 1M0X. “Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled tractors and contact a John Deere dealer for a free repair,” a notice said on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. “John Deere is contacting all registered owners of the recalled lawn and garden tractors directly.” The American-made products were sold for $8,800 to $11,700 from December 2015 to July 2016. No injuries have been reported.
