Hazard identified

The operator presence bail can fail causing the engine to remain on and the blades to continue to rotate. An individual who is not aware that the blades continue to run after the bail is released, may reach under the mower deck to clear a clog or other debris and come in contact with the rotating blades.  This creates a risk of laceration or amputation of digits or limbs.

Neither Health Canada nor Husqvarna has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use these mowers.
