If you bought a lawnmower that hasn't performed as expected, it may be that the horsepower listed by the manufacturer is false. A class action lawsuit has been filed against the makers and retailers of many popular lawnmowers for conspiring to falsify horsepower values. Some of the retailers and manufacturers named in the lawnmower horsepower fraud class action lawsuit include: Sears, Roebuck and Company; Deere & Company; Tecumseh Products Company; Briggs & Stratton Corporation; Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA.; MTD Products, Inc.; The Toro Company; American Honda Motor Company, Inc; Electrolux Home Products, Inc.; and The Kohler Company. Some lawn mowers are sold under trade names such as Craftsman, Cub Cadet, Troy Bilt, Yard-Man, Yard Machines, Bolens, White Outdoor, Lawn-Boy, Exmark, Poulan, Poulan PRO, Weed Eater and Husqvarna. These manufacturers have used fraudulent horsepower values to sell nearly 6 million lawnmowers a year in the United States.
