Kubota Recalls Mowers and Compact Tractors Due to Burn Hazard

According to the recall notice, hot coolant can spray out onto users from the overheated and pressurized coolant reservoir tank and pose a burn hazard. Kubota has received three reports of burn injuries from the coolant ejecting from the reservoir tank.

Kubota Tractor Corp. has recalled about 121,000 units of zero-turn mowers, compact tractors, and ride-on mowers, with the Consumer Product Safety Commission announcing the recall Nov. 7.
