Kubota is recalling 121,000 mowers and compact tractors due to burn hazard.

According to the recall alert from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, "Hot coolant can spray out onto consumers from the overheated and pressurized coolant reservoir tank, posing a burn hazard."

So far, three reports were made of burn injuries from "coolant ejecting." 

The recalled models are from 2014 to 2018 and include the following model numbers: BX, GR, ZD and ZG, diesel and gasoline-powered zero turn mowers, compact tractors, and ride-on mowers.

All recalled units are orange and black, according to the CPSC recall alert.

If your machine was recalled, stop using it immediately and contact Kubota for a free replacement cap for the coolant reservoir tank.
