Settlement Website


  1. On 11/04/2009 I purchased a 21hp 46 Mower Electric Start Auto. Transmisson Model No. 917.289240 which is one of the models listed in your class action.

  2. In 2009 i purchased a Lawn Tractor 17.5 HP 42″ mower electric start 6 speed transaxle model no. 917.2899031… I have replace the motor and several other parts. Not just the belts and blades. I need help.

  3. I purchased a Craftman riding mower Model YT3000 in 2012. Two years ago the fuel tank was leaking from a cracked seam. Had to purchase a new one. Is this included in the settlement?

  4. I purchased a Crafts man 42″ 24 hp v-Twin BRIGGS Yard Tractor, Model#288756.
    The whole machine erupted in flames, as i was riding it. It was totally desroyed and SEARS did nothing to compensate me, after numerous calls to them. I’m sure it was the “Fuel Line Connection or Fuel Leak”
    that your proposed settlement cites. How can I get compensated for the full price, that I paid for this leaker?
