Ariens is recalling its Sno-Tek Snow Throwers and All-Season Power Brushes due to amputation and laceration risks associated with the machines.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a drive pulley has displayed a tendency to crack while in use, which causes the auger/impeller or brush to continue to rotate after the clutch is disengaged.

The recall affects approximately 5,700 units, though no incidents or injuries have been reported.

Affected models include Ariens and Sno-Tek brand snow throwers and Ariens and Graveley brand power brushes.
