Lawsuit Reimbursement: It’s Like Getting Paid to Cut Your Own Lawn

April 27, 2010

Have you bought a lawn mower in the last 16 years? Well, that mower might net you some green.

The manufacturer of your mower might owe you money.

A settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit that accuses several companies of misrepresenting and inflating horsepower figures on lawn mower engines.

What that means to you is that if you purchased a gas-powered lawn mower … between January 1, 1994 and April 12, 2010 … containing an engine with up to 30 horsepower … from one of the manufacturers named in the suit, you may receive up to $35 for each walk-behind mower and up to $75 for each riding mower. Your mower might also be eligible for an extended warranty.

The suit has nothing to do with the safety of the equipment, and the companies involved claimed no wrongdoing, yet it still can benefit you.

Your lawn mower is included in the suit if its engine was manufactured by:

Briggs & Stratton






Your lawn mower is included if the mower itself was manufactured by:








Claims must be submitted by August 31 to receive compensation. To get more information, or to file a claim, check out www.lawnmowerclass.com.

Then, come to my house. I bought my mower 17 years ago, and it no longer works.
