John Deere is recalling about 160 X380 and X390 lawn tractors due to crash and injury hazards.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the wheel hubs were not manufactured to specifications and can fail, causing the tractor to lose braking and propulsion, posing crash and injury hazards.
The tractors are green and yellow. John Deere and the model are printed on the side. The serial number is located on the frame on the front right side of the machine near the engine.
