About 120 ECHO Bear Cat log splitters have been recalled by Crary Industries Inc. of West Fargo, N.D. The end cap of the log splitter’s hydraulic cylinder can break away from the body of the log splitter, posing an impact hazard to the user or bystander. Crary Industries has received three reports of the hydraulic cylinder end caps detaching resulting in one injury from a cylinder reportedly striking a consumer in the head. This recall involves ECHO Bear Cat brand hydraulic log splitter with model numbers LS27270 and LS27270T, with a date code of 012908 stamped on the hydraulic cylinder. The model number is printed on the main beam of the log splitters. The date code is stamped on the hydraulic cylinder near the capped end. The log splitters are black and orange with ECHO Bear Cat printed on the hydraulic cylinder. The log splitters were sold at ECHO Bear Cat dealers nationwide from October 2007 through March 2012 for about $2,600. Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact the nearest dealer for instruction on receiving a free replacement cylinder installed by an authorized dealer.
