Craftsman Chainsaws Recalled Due to Fire Hazards
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
MTD Southwest has recalled Craftsman brand
chainsaws due to potential fire hazards. The company is recalling around 19,500
chainsaws that can leak fuel and cause a fire. The chainsaws are powered
by two-cycle gasoline engines that range in different sizes from 42cc
to 46cc and have a 16, 18 or 20-inch bar. These chainsaws were manufactured
between November 15, 2015, and June 7, 2016, and sold at Sears, Ace Hardware,
Atwoods, and Orchard Supply Hardware and online at sears.com and OSH.com.
These were sold between February 2016 through July 2016 between $160 and
$280. The company recommends that consumers immediately suspend use of
the chainsaw and contact the company’s recall line for instructions
to receive a free replacement chainsaw.
