Many people throughout Georgia love tending to their beautiful Southern properties and yards. Two tools often used to tidy up a home’s appearance are lawn mowers and pressure washers. Unfortunately, a recent recall from Honda might put your yard work on hold.
Honda’s recent recalls
Honda recently issued recalls for a few of its lawn mower and pressure washer product lines. So far, the injury-posing risk of these items has led to nearly 400,000 recalled units. Honda specifically recalled the following products:
- Honda HRN216 lawn mowers
- Honda HRX217K6 lawn mowers
- Honda CCV170 pressure washers
- Honda CCV200 pressure washers
Many businesses carried and sold the now-recalled products from Honda. According to recent reports, companies sold Honda’s affected lawn mowers and pressure washers from May 2022 to June 2023. Some of the largest stores that sold these items included:
- Honda Power Equipment
- Northern Tool
- Home Depot
- Ace Hardware
The reason for these recalls
American Honda Motor recalled its lawn mowers and pressure washers due to a manufacturing issue. This problem can lead to product defect injuries caused by starter ropes retracting during mower and pressure washer start-up processes. Additionally, recalled Honda products with electric motors may not start.
According to Honda, this company received 2,197 incident reports about its affected lawn mowers and pressure washers. Of these issued reports, seven resulted in minor injuries. Currently, Honda’s recalled products haven’t caused life-threatening injuries or deaths.
Honda recommends anyone with these defective products to stop using them immediately. This company is offering free inspections and repairs to resolve these engine and camshaft-related problems. But you’ll need to visit an authorized Honda Power Equipment dealer.
