Masport has recalled some of its lawnmowers fitted with the MSV® blade disc cutting system. If the disc blade system is damaged or incorrectly maintained, it can become imbalanced and create excessive vibration. This can cause the blade disc to crack and detach from the engine, causing injury.
Mowers with serial numbers 7545492 to 7791051 are affected.
Affected mowers were sold at Masport stockists nationwide from July 2012 to March 2014.
What to do
While the lawnmower is turned off, check the blade disc and cutting tips for cracks around the centre hole of the blade disc, uneven blade wear or damaged blade tips.
If the mower has any of the above issues, is experiencing excessive handle vibration or making an unusual noise, take it to a Masport service dealer.
