What’s the Problem?

This recall affects Toro TimeCutter Mowers from model year 2015, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).

Our lawyers suspect that Toro Lawnmowers sold in late 2013 or anytime during 2014 may have the same problem, despite not being recalled. Documentation that came with your lawnmower should indicate the model year of your TimeCutter mower.

If you purchased a lawnmower that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact the Toro Company for information about how to obtain a free repair or replacement mower.

This recall began in November 2015.

Class Action Lawsuit Alleges Toro Lawnmower May Catch Fire

A class action lawsuit filed in August 2019 alleges that The Toro Company sold defective TimeCutter lawn mowers that can spontaneously catch on fire.

Plaintiff Scott Gruenwald, who purchased a new 2014 Toro TimeCutter riding lawn mower for approximately $3,500 in 2014, claims that on June 27, 2018, after normal, intended use of the mower, it unexpectedly caught fire while it was parked in his garage that was connected to his house. The fire spread from the garage and into his home, which engulfed his entire house and resulted in the loss of his home, according to the lawsuit. A subsequent independent investigation determined that the origin of the fire was the Toro mower.

The class action lawsuit alleges that Toro TimeCutter driving mowers pose a serious safety risk to users and properties because they were designed defectively in a manner that causes them to spontaneously catch fire. Additionally, Toro is aware of the fire problem but has not sufficiently handled the problem, according to the lawsuit.

Plaintiff claims that Toro recalled some affected mowers, made in 2015; however, this recall was insufficient because it did not include the 2014 mower, which Gruenwald purchased.

The Lawsuit is: Scott Gruenwald v. The Toro Company, et al., Case No. 0:19-cv-02294, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota.
