----------------------------------------

In 2010, class actions were initiated in Ontario by Harrison Pensa LLP and in Quebec by Consumer Law Group Inc. against all of the manufacturers of lawn mowers in Canada, including: Sears, John Deere, Tecumseh, Platinum Equity, Briggs & Stratton, Kawasaki, MTD, Toro, Honda, Electrolux, Husqvarna, and Kohler.

It is alleged that these companies participated in an unlawful conspiracy to raise, fix, maintain or stabilize the price of lawn mowers in Canada, lessen unduly competition in the production, manufacture, sale and/or supply of lawn mowers and lawn mower engines, and/or to conduct business contrary to the Competition Act and the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act.

The following lawn mowers are the subject of the litigation:

Lawn Mowers purchased in Canada between January 1, 1994 and December 31, 2012 containing a gas combustible engine labeled at 30 horsepower or less.

Two settlement agreements have been reached in the Lawn Mowers Class Action. Under the first agreement, MTD has agreed to pay $300,000.00 for the benefit of Settlement Class Members and to provide evidence and co-operation to the Plaintiffs in pursuing their claims against the remaining Non-Settling Defendants. The MTD Settlement also resolves the allegations and litigation against Sears. Under the second agreement, Briggs, Electrolux, John Deere, Husqvarna, Kohler and Toro have agreed to pay $4,200,000.00 for the benefit of Settlement Class Members. A copy of the Settlement Agreements are available here:
