About 8,000 STIHL battery-powered hedge trimmers have been recalled by STIHL Inc., of Virginia Beach, Va. The hedge trimmer can operate faster than expected, continue running after the trigger is released or operate by depressing either the trigger or the front handle switch individually, posing a laceration hazard. This recall involves STIHL model HSA 65 battery-powered hedge trimmers. “STIHL” and “HSA 65” are printed on the side of the battery compartment between the trigger and the loop handle. The hedge trimmer is gray and orange, with a loop handle, removable battery and a 20 inch hedge trimming blade. STIHL Inc. has received seven reports of the trigger or front handle switch not operating properly. No injuries have been reported.
The trimmers were sold at authorized STIHL dealers nationwide from June 2010 through April 2016 for about $300. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled trimmer and return it to an authorized STIHL dealer for a free replacement battery-powered hedge trimmer. Contact STIHL Inc. at 800-610-6677 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email email@example.com or online at www.stihlusa.com and click on Information and then Product Recalls for more information.
