STIHL product recall
STIHL recalls a limited production range of cut-off machines
STIHL has learned that a limited number of TS 410 and TS 420 cut-off machines in the below noted serial number range were assembled with the flywheel-to-crankshaft connection over-tightened. Overtightening of this connection may damage the flywheel, which could cause the flywheel to fail and break apart while the engine is running.
A failure during the operation of the machine would pose a projectile hazard to the user or a bystander. A damaged flywheel is not apparent from a visual inspection.
Affected serial number range: 189442634 – 190001700
If you own a cut-off machine TS 410 or TS 420 in the given serial number range,
please discontinue using the machine immediately. Contact your local STIHL dealer, including any Jewson branch, for a flywheel replacement. This repair is free of charge for you.
