Yard Tools Cause Burns, Fires

As you get your yard ready for summer take a look to see if you are using any STIHL power tools. The company recently issued a recall of around 2.3 million trimmers, brushcutters, KombiMotors, hedge trimmers, edgers, clearing saws, pole pruners, and backpack blowers that utilize a toolless fuel cap.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of gas powered STIHL trimmers, brushcutters, KombiMotors, hedge trimmers, edgers, clearing saws, pole pruners, and backpack blowers that utilize a toolless fuel cap.

The level of ethanol and other fuel additives can distort the toolless fuel cap, allowing fuel to spill, posing a fire and burn hazard.
