For our annual Great Outdoors issue, we’ve compiled a list of not-so-great outdoor tools and products. To read the rest, watch for the June/July issue, landing in mailbox and online in early June.
Keep Your Cool: Coolant tank caps for Kubota ride-on mowers, utility tractors, and zero-turn mowers.
Models affected: Various models of ride-on mowers, utility tractors, and zero-turn mowers. Visit the product recalls section on HealthyCanadians.ca for the complete list.
Potential problem: As described in the recall notice, “Under some overheat conditions, the cap of the radiator coolant reserve tank, if restricted, can come off and high-temperature coolant may spray out, posing a burn hazard.” Ouch.
Sold: Approximately 17,000 units of the affected products were sold in Canada from July 2014 to August 2018.
