Recall in November

Anyone get anything about this. I called the number and it said get in touch with your local Hustler dealer, and I did, and like most everything with them, I have heard Nothing from them.

Would like to know what is involved in it, and if it can be done at home, (without having to take my machine in) like the Kawasaki fuel filter recall was in the Summer.

Below is what I found on it.

Recall Date: November 1, 2012
Recall Number: 13-704
