MTD Consumer Group Inc, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and for those products certified for sale in the state of
California, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) are pleased to explain the evaporative emission control system (ECS) warranty on your
2014-2015 small off-road equipment (outdoor equipment). In California, new outdoor equipment must be designed, built and equipped to
meet the State's stringent anti-smog standards (in other states, outdoor equipment must be designed, built, and equipped to meet the U.S. EPA
small off-road spark ignition engine regulations). MTD Consumer Group Inc must warrant the ECS on your outdoor equipment for the period of
time listed below, provided there has been no abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance of the outdoor equipment.
Your ECS may include parts such as fuel tanks, fuel lines, fuel caps, valves, canisters, filters, vapor hoses, clamps, connectors, and other
associated emission-related components.
Where a warrantable condition exists, MTD Consumer Group Inc will repair your outdoor equipment at no cost to you including diagnosis,
parts, and labor.
This emission control system is warranted for two years. If any emission-related part on your outdoor equipment is defective, the part will be
repaired or replaced by MTD Consumer Group Inc.
As the outdoor equipment owner, you are responsible for performance of the required maintenance listed in your owner's manual. MTD
Consumer Group Inc recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your outdoor equipment, but MTD Consumer Group Inc
cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts.
As the outdoor equipment owner, you should however be aware that MTD Consumer Group Inc may deny you warranty coverage if your
outdoor equipment or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your outdoor equipment to MTD Consumer Group Inc's distribution center or service center as soon as
the problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days. If you have a question
regarding your warranty coverage, you should contact the MTD Consumer Group Inc Service Department at 1-800-800-7310 or at
MTD Consumer Group Inc warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that the outdoor equipment is: (1) designed,
built, and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations; and (2) free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the
failure of a warranted part for a period of two years.
The warranty period begins on the date the outdoor equipment is delivered to an ultimate purchaser or first placed into service.
Subject to certain conditions and exclusions as stated below, the warranty on emission-related parts is as follows:
Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written instructions supplied is warranted for
the warranty period stated above. If the part fails during the period of warranty coverage, the part will be repaired or replaced by MTD
Consumer Group Inc according to subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the
remainder of the period.
Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular inspection in the written instructions supplied is warranted for the warranty period
stated above. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the remaining warranty period.
Any warranted part that is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written instructions supplied is warranted for the
period of time before the first scheduled replacement date for that part. If the part fails before the first scheduled replacement, the part
will be repaired or replaced by MTD Consumer Group Inc according to subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under
warranty will be warranted for the remainder of the period prior to the first scheduled replacement point for the part.
Repair or replacement of any warranted part under the warranty provisions herein must be performed at a warranty station at no charge
to the owner.
Notwithstanding the provisions herein, warranty services or repairs will be provided at all of our distribution centers that are franchised to
service the subject engines or equipment.
The outdoor equipment owner will not be charged for diagnostic labor that is directly associated with diagnosis of a defective, emission-
related warranted part, provided that such diagnostic work is performed at a warranty station.
MTD Consumer Group Inc is liable for damages to other engine or equipment components proximately caused by a failure under
warranty of any warranted part.
Throughout the off-road engine and equipment warranty period stated above, MTD Consumer Group Inc will maintain a supply of
warranted parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for such parts.
Any replacement part may be used in the performance of any warranty maintenance or repairs and must be provided without charge to
the owner. Such use will not reduce the warranty obligations of MTD Consumer Group Inc.
Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the Air Resources Board may not be used. The use of any non-exempted add-on or
modified parts by the ultimate purchaser will be grounds for disallowing a warranty claim. MTD Consumer Group Inc will not be liable to
warrant failures of warranted parts caused by the use of a non-exempted add-on or modified part.
