Dangers of Defective Snow Throwers

When you buy a consumer good, you expect it to be a help to your daily life, something that adds a convenience or benefit to what you already do. This is certainly the case in lawn care products, including snow blowers or snow throwers. These devices are intended to relieve you of the often back-breaking and frigid work of shoveling snow. When operating properly, a snow blower can greatly increase your quality of life by keeping you out of the cold and making a safe, useable path to your door.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective snow blower, you need an experienced lawyer to fight for the compensation you deserve. Please contact a Rhinelander snow blower defect lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling 800-242-2874 today for a free case evaluation.

Snow Thrower Recalls

There have been two major recalls of snow throwers in recent years. The first affected 130,000 units distributed by MTD companies including models under the names of Troy-Bilt, Yard Machines, and Craftsman. These two-stage snow throwers have defective plastic rims that could explode if the tire is over-inflated. These products have resulted in numerous injuries, including lacerations to the face.

The most recent recall of snow throwers is of the Toro Power Clear 180 single-stage snow thrower. These snow throwers are reported to leak gasoline, leading to a serious threat of engine fire. Engine fires can result in dangerous burns and injuries to the operator.

Be sure to operate all snow throwers with care to avoid injury. These products, like all mechanical tools, can pose serious safety hazards if they are defective or operated improperly.
