I came across an advertisement in the USA Weekend section of our Sunday newspaper regarding a class-action lawsuit. This lawsuit involves gas engine powered lawnmowers with 30 horsepower or more. The lawsuit claims that the manufacturer's misrepresented and overstated the horsepower of their lawnmowers. This is a big date range! We definitely purchased a lawnmower in this time period when we purchased our home. I will definitely be looking into the model number of our machine. If your lawnmower is on the list (it appears that several are included), you may be eligible for a $35 cash settlement for a walk-behind mower, or $75 for a riding lawnmower.
It's worth taking a look at!
