NEW YORK (AP) – Deere is recalling more than 2,000 lawn tractors because the brake arm can fail and cause a crash. There have been no reports of injuries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday. The recall is for John Deere models D110, D125, D130, D140, D155, D160 and D170 with serial numbers beginning with 1GXD. They were sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s and other stores since May. They cost between $1,700 and $2,700. About 1,700 were sold in the U.S. and 370 in Canada.
Deere & Co., based in Moline, Illinois, said customers should stop using the tractors and contact the company for a free repair. Owners can call (800) 537-8233 or go to http://www.deere.com and select “Recall Information” from the Services & Support menu.
