Toro Turn Mowers Too Hot to Handle, Result in Burn Injuries

Comments Off

Liquid-cooled models of Toro Z Master ZRT Mowers were recently recalled. There have been six burn reports thus far, caused by the coolant overflow container becoming over-pressurized and spraying hot coolant on the mower’s operator. About 4,100 defective mowers have been produced, including models Z580, Z580-D, Z593-D and Z595-D, all of which use fuel-injected, liquid-cooled Kawasaki gas or liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engines. Review a complete list of recalled models, via the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Stop using these mowers at once in order to avoid getting serious burns! Consumers may also contact Toro for a free repair kit.
