Many Wisconsin consumers use snow blowers, also known as show throwers, to clear snow-covered lawns throughout the winter. While these products can provide a convenient way to clear a path to the car each morning, they can also pose a serious risk if they are defective.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a document in 2006 warning about the dangers of certain defective snow throwers. Before long, MTD Manufacturing announced the recall of Troy-Bilt, Yard Machines, and Craftsman brand snow blowers. Although hundreds of thousands of the affected products have been pulled from shelves, many remain in circulation.
The CPSC warning concerned the plastic wheel rims on these machines, which can burst without warning while the machines are in use. Injuries have been reported from all over the country, including broken fingers and lacerations to the hands, face, and feet. Lacerations in these parts of the body can cause serious problems such as deformities, infections, and loss of function on the affected areas.
The recalled snow blowers were sold under the brand names Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, and Yard Machines between July 2004 and March 2006. They were available at Sears, Kmart, and many independent hardware stores. The average cost was between $500 and $800.
