BRP U.S. Inc. recalled some Ski-Doo snowmobiles last year. Now that we have a bunch of snow in Wisconsin it is time to check your snowmobile (or as Governor Sarah Palin says “Snow Machine”).
Ski-Doo is imported from Finland by the BRP U.S. Inc. company in Sturtevant, Wisconsin. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has the information and pictures on their website. The hazard is:
Friction between the fuel hose and the cylinder head cover can cause the hose to pierce. This can cause fuel to leak out, posing a fire hazard.
If you are driving snowmobiles this season be sure to stay safe. The Wisconsin Association of Snowmobile Clubs has a weekly safety tip. Check them out and drive safe.
