You Could Be Owed $55 From A Class Action Lawsuit In Canada, Here's How To Get It

A class-action lawsuit settled for $7.5 MLLION a few months ago. The lawsuit claims that lawnmower manufacturers did not accurately detail the power of the engines. This lawsuit involves many recognisable brands, such as Kawasaki, John Deere, Honda, and Toro.

If you purchased one of the lawnmower models described in the claim between 1994 and 2012, you could be eligible to claim between $15 and $55.

TL;DR If you bought one of these models of lawnmowers, you are eligible to file a claim and collect between $15 and $55.

The lawsuit claims that manufacturers overstated the power of their engines between 1992 and 2014. Specifically, the class action "claim[s] that the companies who manufactured the engines and the lawn mowers containing them mislabelled the products to show a higher horsepower rating than what was actually contained in the lawn mower."

Manufacturers involved include Kawasaki, John Deere, Honda, and Toro. It is important to note that this settlement is not an admission of guilt on the part of the manufacturers.

  • you purchased a gas-powered walk-behind or riding lawn mower designed, manufactured or labelled by one of the companies mentioned in the lawsuit and
  • you made this purchase in Canada between 1994 and 2012

You will be compensated betwen $15 and $55, depending on whether or not you have proof of purchase. You do not need to have proof of purchase to file this claim.
