John Deere Recalls Compact Utility Loaders Due to Injury Hazard

Information is missing from the operator’s manual about the proper ballast when the loader is attached to a John Deere model 2025R tractor. If improperly ballasted, the tractor can be unstable and create a risk of injury to the operator or bystanders.

John Deere has recalled about 12,800 units of its 120R compact utility tractor loaders, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday.

Information is missing from the operator’s manual about the proper ballast when the loader is attached to a John Deere model 2025R tractor. If improperly ballasted, the tractor can be unstable and create a risk of injury to the operator or bystanders.

The recall involves John Deere model 120R loaders that attach to 2025R tractors. The recalled loaders are mostly green with yellow accents, and the model number 120R is located on both sides of the loader. They were sold at John Deere dealers from May 2017 through September 2017.

No injuries have been reported but John Deere has directed consumers to immediately stop using the recalled loaders and contact an authorized John Deere dealer for a free correction of the operator’s manual.
