    If you are the owner of one or more Exmark Lazer HP commercial mowers as outlined above,
    your mower is affected by a MANDATORY SAFETY REWORK campaign to install a newly designed
    crossover tail pipe extension.

    In voluntary cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Exmark is recalling
    Lazer HP commercial mowers. Failure to update your unit could expose the operator and/or
    bystanders to the risk of fire and serious personal injury. Do not use your unit until this
    rework has been completed.

    ISSUE: In an ongoing effort to identify potential ignition sources of fuel vapors, we have determined
    that an "after bang" or "backfire" which might occur during operation or at shutdown of the engine
    can ignite fuel vapors.

    WHAT TO DO: Stop using your mower immediately. The rework will consist of replacing the existing
    spark arrester with a new crossover tail pipe. The dealer will also inspect and if necessary will
    replace any fuel tank grommets that shows signs of leakage, seepage or weather cracking. A free
    set of blades will be given to each registered customer upon completion of the rework.
    Warranty will cover the parts and labor cost associated with this campaign.

    Please note that pick-up and delivery allowances have been made for homeowners who cannot
    transport their unit to their local dealer. Please contact the dealer that you purchased your unit from
    to schedule an appointment to get your mower reworked. The necessary parts have most likely
    already been sent to the dealer where you purchased your unit.

    All of us here at Exmark appreciate your patronage and your use of our products. We apologize for
    any inconvenience that this rework may cause you. If you have any questions regarding this matter,
    please feel free to contact Exmark's customer service department at 1-800-479-8379.
