IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE Murray 30" Ride-on Mowers

Murray Inc. is recalling certain 30" rear engine and mid engine ride-on mowers purchased since 1995 and sold in the UK in varying specifications under the brand names: Murray, Sentinel, Yard King or Hayter.

In a small number of instances there has been evidence that the petrol tank may leak, posing a potential fire hazard. Our records show no incidence of the problem with rear engine ride-ons in the U.K. and only isolated instances relating to last year's model of the mid engine ride-on.

Nevertheless, as a responsible company with consumer safety always in mind, we believe it is prudent that all practical steps be taken to minimise any potential risk.
