Anyone who owns a 2014 Toro Time Cutter riding lawnmower.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of people who have these lawnmowers. The 2015 model has been recalled over a fire risk – and attorneys suspect the 2014 model has the very same issue.
How Could a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
In addition to providing money back to consumers, a successful class action could force the manufacturer to recall and/or repair the mowers.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org would like to speak to anyone who owns a 2014 Toro TimeCutter riding lawnmower.
They believe these lawnmowers present a fire risk and that a class action lawsuit could be filed. Before they can even consider filing a lawsuit, however, they need to speak with people who own the 2014 TimeCutter to inspect the lawnmower and determine whether it has the same issue that led to the recall of the 2015 model.
What’s the Problem?
It is suspected that the 2014 Toro TimeCutter riding lawnmower may have defective fuel filters. Specifically, it’s believed that the filters can become brittle and fracture, which can cause fuel to leak and potentially pose a fire hazard.
In November 2015, the manufacturer of the riding lawnmowers announced that it was recalling the 2015 model of the Toro TimeCutter because of a fuel filter issue and related fire hazard. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org suspect that the 2014 model has the very same problem – but has not been recalled or repaired by Toro.
How Could a Class Action Help?
A class action lawsuit could help people with the 2014 TimeCutter get back some of the money they spent on their lawnmowers, regardless of whether they actually had a fire. It’s believed that the value of the $2500 lawnmowers has been diminished because of the fuel filter problem – and that Toro customers would not have spent as much as they did had they known about the issue.
Further, a successful class action lawsuit could force Toro to recall the 2014 models or otherwise properly notify people with the lawnmowers and offer a repair.
How Would I Know If My Lawnmower Is the 2014 Model?
It’s probable that you have the 2014 model if you purchased your lawnmower in late 2013 or anytime during 2014. If you still have the documentation that came with your lawnmower, this may also reveal the model year of your TimeCutter mower.
