About Sears’ Craftsman Riding Lawn Mowers and Lawn Tractors
A class action complaint was filed on May 21, 2015 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging that Sears’ Craftsman riding lawnmowers and lawn tractors contain a serious and dangerous defect. The complaint lists the riding lawnmowers and tractors sold by Sears that contain the defect are, but not limited to, Craftsman Models 917.20383, 917.288515, YTS 3500 Model No. 917.27660, GT 5000 Model No. 917.289453. It is alleged that these lawnmowers have a fuel line that is not adequately secured and can often dislodge from the gas tank during use. The fuel line and electrical components are near the lawnmowers’ drive belts and pulleys so that when the fuel line breaks away from the fuel tank or is worn down from the friction of the moving parts and/or if the electrical components are worn down from the friction of the moving parts, fuel drips onto the mowing bed and catches fire. The fire caused by the fuel leak can occur while using the lawnmower or just after they are stored after use. The complaint alleges Sears knew or should have known about the defect and concealed it from and failed to warn consumers.
