John Deere Recalls Compact Utility Tractors

1 comment

John Deere, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of John Deere Compact Utility Tractors.

According to a news release by the CPSC, "An incorrectly sized differential was installed in the tractor transaxle affecting the engagement of the differential lock and causing the tractor to turn to the left when braking. This causes the vehicle to veer left when the brake is applied, posing a risk of collision and injury to the operator and bystanders."

To this date, there have been no reports of injuries associated with the recalled tractors.

Tractors with model numbers 3032E and 3038E are included in the recall. View a list of model numbers and serial numbers included in the recall. The serial number plate is on the tractor frame above the front wheel.

Consumers should contact a John Deere dealer to schedule a free repair. In the meantime the tractors should not be used to avoid risk of injury.

Consumer Information: Contact Deere & Company at (800) 537-8233 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET or visit the company’s Web site at www.johndeere.com
