    Thanks for the heads up. I could not fail to notice that both recalls are related to the failure of plastic parts, too much plastic in our equipment now-a-days [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Thanks Bill, this is very timely. Last week we bought a used Murray lawn tractor from a family friend. I'll be sure to check the model number.
