    I received 2 Walker recall bulletins I will bring to your attention.

    1. Recall bulletin #01134 -Replace Deck counterweight springs.-

    Models affected: All Decks affected s/n 2203 thru 62874

    Purpose: Hook breaking possibly injuring operator.

    A new spring design has swivel hook on one end to increase durability and reduce failure.

    New spring attaches swivel end to deck, rigid end to tractor body.

    Parts required: order (1) Replacement spring kit p/n 5743-5

    Warranty covered.


    2. Recall bulletin #01142 -Remount PTO Safety Switch -

    Models affected: Model MC/MD/MT S/N 01-49578 thru 01-54787

    Purpose: Orientation of pto safety switch has allowed debris to accumulate in the actuation arm hinge, stopping switch funtion. Both the operator seat safety function and the Powerfil (if GHS equipped) are disabled when this switch does not operate.

    A design change remounts the switch "upside down" to prevent this problem.

    Parts required: (1) P/N 5942-7 Switch relocation upgrade kit

    Warranty covered

    Sorry, my scanner crapped out, or i would have made as an attachment.


    Good luck!!

    Thanks Dave. Any "inside" info is always appreciated. This stuff should be posted at the dealer.

    Glad to help!!

    You would think dealers would notify their customers, now you can inform your dealer.

    I guess not all dealers are the same.

    I also received a few service bulletins i will post soon, gotta go to Wally world for a new scanner.

    Old thread, but I wonder if this switch issue could explain my Walker cutting out and nearly stalling on hills today. Powerfill alarm didn't work either. Had worked before.

    Would Walker still honor recall?
