Toro is recalling approximately 18,000 snowblowers and 6,000 mowers that were sold throughout the U.S. and Canada from September 2009 to March 2011. The carburetors on both products develop fuel leaks and can ignite when exposed to an ignition source, posing a fire or burn hazard. There have been about 500 reports of carburetor leaks. There were no reports of fire or injury.
The affected models are:
Toro PC-421Q Snowblower
The model/serial numbers are found on a decal on the underside of the rear of the unit.
Toro 20" Recycler Mower
The model and serial numbers are found on a decal on the left rear of the mower.
