(WHTM) – John Deere is recalling two lawn tractor models due to crash and injury hazards.
This recall involves John Deere lawn tractors, models X380 and X390, sold nationwide at dealers and online from April 2022 through May 2022.
According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are three reports of the lawn tractor not braking properly. The CPSC says the wheel hubs were “not manufactured to specifications and can fail, causing the tractor to lose braking and propulsion.”
One minor injury resulting in bruises and abrasions was reported.
The tractors are green and yellow with John Deere and the model is printed on the side, as seen below.
The serial number is located on the frame on the front right side of the machine near the engine. Recalled serial number ranges are as follows:
|Model||Serial Number Range|
|X380 – No deck||1M0X380DXNM130065 through 1M0X380DXNM130068|
|X380 – 48 in. deck||1M0X380AXNM132496 through 1M0X380AXNM132575|
