Lowe’s Riding Mower Recall Issued Over Blade Problems
More than 100 reports of detached mower blades and fuel line leaks has led to a recall of about 11,000 multi-purpose lawn mowers sold exclusively at Lowe’s, because they may pose a risk of injury for bystanders and operators.
The Lowe’s riding mower recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on December 4, impacting Denver Global multi-purpose yard vehicles, which are gas-powered four-wheel drive mowers that can also be used as a garden tractor or portable generator.
At least 82 reports have been received of the mower blades detaching detaching, 34 reports of the fuel lines leaking and six reports of the vehicles and deck blades starting without the operator activating them. At least one bystander has been injured by the recalled riding lawn mowers, suffering a laceration and bruising to the leg from a detached deck blade.

The riding mowers have a 46-inch cutting deck and a cargo bed for storage. They are black with red grab rails on both sides of the cargo bed and have red center panels on the seat, hood, and suspension.
Customers may identify the recalled vehicles date by locating the serial number displayed in MM/DD/YY format on the identification plate. “Denver Global” Products Inc.”, “Model #MPV710-001”, “1-888-321-5700”, and www.denverglobal.com can also be found on the identification plate.
The affected vehicles were manufactured in the United States under Denver Global Products of Lincolnton, North Carolina where they were sold exclusively at Lowe’s stores nationwide between January 2013 and May 2013 for roughly $3,000.
The CPSC recommends that customers with affected vehicles stop using them immediately, remove the key, apply the parking brake, and remove the green and yellow fuses from the white plastic fuse holders on the right hand side under the seat.
