Identifying features

What are the defects?

The brushcutter's spark arrestor may not be correctly fastened.

What are the hazards?

If the spark arrestor is not correctly fastened, it may come loose or detach, which can cause the emission of sparks from the muffler. There is an increased risk of fire, which may result in serious injury and property damage.

Consumers should check to see if they have an affected brushcutter. Consumers with affected brushcutters should stop using the product and return it to their nearest STIHL servicing dealer to be checked and repaired.
