According to the CPSC, the steering control arm component can break under normal use, causing driver to lose control and crash.

Twenty-two incidents reported control arm failure, including failure during use and initial set-up. There have been no reports of injuries. The Mower should be returned to the dealer where purchased for free repair with a newly designed control arm component. Consumers who completed the warranty registration card were contacted directly by Schiller Grounds Care, Inc, with instructions for obtaining the repair.
