(Meredith) – SureFit is recalling their riding lawnmower blade spindle shafts after discovering they can break during use, turning the broken blade pieces into projectiles.

This poses a risk of an impact injury to bystanders or damage to property.

This recall involves the SureFit blade spindle shaft/assembly with model numbers:

  • 504-00341
  • 504-00346

The products were sold separately as replacement blade spindle shafts/assemblies in the aftermarket for John Deere riding lawnmowers.

Consumers should immediately stop using riding lawnmowers with SureFit blade spindle shaft and/or assemblies and contact SureFit for instructions on receiving a free replacement blade spindle shaft. The firm is contacting all known purchasers directly.

No injuries or property damage have been reported.

These products were sold at Ball Equipment, Dixie Sales, Marr Brothers and other lawn and garden stores nationwide from January 2017 through September 2017 for about $58 for the assembly and $20 for the shaft.

About 900 units have been affected.
