For recalls of Troy-Bilt mowers, check the the Troy-Bilt website at www.troybilt.com or the website of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission at www.cpsc.gov.

If you believe your mower is malfunctioning due to a manufacturer's defect, it's a good idea to visit these sites before taking the machine to a mechanic or attempting to fix it yourself. This is for safety reasons, as well as to protect your investment.

Recalled Troy-Bilt Lawn Mowers

In 2001, the CPSC issued a product recall for 2,800 trimmers-mowers sold under the Troy-Bilt and Garden Way By Troy Bilt brand names. The recalled models are the 52063 and 52064 Troy-Bilt brand and the 52067 Garden Way by Troy-Bilt brand.

Defective Trimmer Heads

The trimmer heads of the recalled models, which control the cutting cords, may split and detach, posing a serious injury risk to anyone using the machines, or standing nearby. Garden Way received 38 reports of trimmer heads splitting or detaching. There were two reports of toe fractures and five reports of bruised feet.
