Oshkosh Recalls Snow Blowers

February 10, 2010

WASHINGTON - Oshkosh is recalling 133 MY 2008-2010 H-Series snow blowers operated on public roads. An electrical problem with the snow blowers poses a fire risk. 

The recall affects snow blowers manufactured between August 20, 2008 and January 22, 2010, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

An electrical power cable may come in contact with a hydraulic hose. Rubbing may wear away the electrical power cable insulation and the hose body. Eventually, the power cable interference may cause sparks and arcing. This poses an electrical fire risk. 

Oshkosh will notify owners and repair the vehicles free of charge. To reach Oshkosh, call (800) 222-6635.
