Wisconsin Manufacturer Recalls Mowers for Fire Hazard

CPSC's announcement said consumers "should immediately stop using these recalled lawn mowers and contact Scag Power Equipment or an authorized dealer for a free repair."

Scag Power Equipment, a division of Metalcraft of Maryville, of Maryville, Wis., has recalled two models of its Scag Liberty-Z zero-turn lawn mowers: model SZL48-22KT with serial numbers K7100001 through K7102353 and model SZL52-24KT with serial numbers K7200001 through K7202020, after receiving five reports of gas tank leaks with these models, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Aug. 25. No injuries have been reported according to the agency.

The recall involves about 4,400 units that were manufactured in the United States. Consumers who bought them (authorized dealers sold them nationwide from October 2014 through May 2015 for about $4,500) should contact the company at 844-491-4859 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CDT weekdays or visit www.scag.com and click on Recall Information at the bottom of the page for more information.

The model and serial numbers are printed on a vertical plate under the mower's seat. "Scag" in red letters, "Liberty Z" in white letters, and a blue "Z" is printed on a plate below the front of the seat. The mowers have an orange base with two orange and black steering handles. The mowers have two large, black with orange rim wheels in the back of the mower and two smaller black with orange rim wheels in front.

CPSC's announcement said consumers "should immediately stop using these recalled lawn mowers and contact Scag Power Equipment or an authorized dealer for a free repair," adding, "Scag Power Equipment authorized dealers have contacted all known owners."
