Any compact tractors from September 1, 2016 – April 30, 2018 are at risk, as the canopies were not built to design specifications and exceed the weight that can be attached to the rollover protective structure (ROPS) of some tractors.

"This extra weight could have a long-term effect on the integrity of the ROPS," the ACCC says.

The canopies are sold in a range of colours including green, blue, orange, red and dark red. The ACCC is advising customers to stop using affected compact utility tractors or to remove the canopy and contact an authorised John Deere dealer.

John Deere dealers will repair for free on behalf of A&I Products.

Owners on record will be sent a letter to inform them of the recall and instruct them to contact an authorised John Deere dealer for a free repair. A Product Improvement Program is being developed that will replace the steel canopy top with one that meets specifications.
