RE: The tariff classification of parts of a transaxle from China

Dear Mr. Schau:

In your letter dated June 10, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client Hydro-Gear.

The articles in question are described as a bypass rod, product number 51098, and a bypass arm, product number 51099. You indicate the parts are used in the assembly of a transaxle for a riding lawn mower/ tractor and offer that the parts are provided for in subheading 8433.90.5040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other parts of mowers.

While the bypass rod and arm are, prima facie, parts of the lawn mower/tractor in which they will be used, they are more specifically provided for as parts of the transaxle and provided for in HTSUS heading 8483 as parts of gearing, gear boxes and other speed changers.

The applicable subheading for the bypass rod and arm will be 8483.90.5000, HTSUS, which provides for parts of gearing, gear boxes and other speed changers. The rate of duty will be 2.3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kenneth T. Brock at 646-733-3009.
