LIBERTY Z Stop Usage: 6/2/2015
There have been five reports from the field of the gas tank leaking from the side seam of the Liberty’s tank. These leaks may or may not have been caused by impacts to the tank; we are working with our tank supplier to determine the exact cause of the leaks and to find a solution. While the number of reported failures is statistically very small when considering the number of Liberty’s manufactured, your safety is of utmost concern to us and we want to make you aware of this situation.
Please discontinue use of your Scag Liberty mower until a solution is determined and a repair of your mower is completed. You will be contacted with more details of this program as quickly as possible. We recognize that this is the mowing season and getting your mower back in service is our highest priority.
