Deere & Company is recalling about 750 Frontier FM3012, GM1060, GM1072, GM1084, GM1190, GM3060, and GM3072 grooming mowers.

Incorrect assembly of the mower’s drivelines can prevent the safety shield from spinning independently, posing an entanglement injury hazard.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves John Deere’s Frontier-branded grooming mowers for use with compact utility tractors.

“Frontier” and model FM3012, GM1060, GM1072, GM1084, GM1190, GM3060 or GM3072 are printed on the mower.

A complete list of serial numbers included in this recall along with the location of the serial number is available at

The mowers, manufactured in the U.S, were sold at John Deere dealers nationwide from April 2018, through May 2019, for between $3,100 and $16,700.
