STIHL recalls cordless Li-Ion hedge trimmers HSA 65 and HSA 85
STIHL is recalling cordless Li-Ion hedge trimmers of the types HSA 65 and HSA 85. In rare cases, an electronic malfunction can occur in these products. As a result, the malfunction can lead in certain circumstances to a situation where the tool starts with only pressing one of the switch devices - the switch on the operating handle, or on the loop handle. In addition, the malfunction can, in rare instances, cause that the blades continuing to move after the trigger is released. These conditions create a risk of injury. Owners of Li-Ion hedge trimmers of the types HSA 65 and HSA 85 are requested no longer to operate the tools and to consult their STIHL dealer. STIHL will, via the STIHL dealers, exchange all operable hedge trimmers of the above types for new successor models of these tools (HSA 66 and HSA 86) free of charge. Batteries and battery chargers, however, will not be exchanged, as these can be used with the new tools. This is a precautionary measure taken by STIHL as a responsible manufacturer.
