Charlotte, NC — About 10,500 RedMax brushcutters/trimmers are being voluntarily recalled by Husqvarna Zenoah Co. Ltd., an affiliate of Husqvarna Professional Products Inc., and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for fire hazards the defective product poses to consumers.
The recall was announced after it was discovered that some fuel tanks permit leakage from the fuel cap, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
“The recalled brushcutter/trimmer is a RedMax model TR2350S. Recalled brushcutters have shaft serial numbers ranging from 10215377 to 10625892, and engine serial numbers ranging from 10115390 to 10425910. The product is powered by a 2-cycle gasoline engine and cuts grass or weeds through the use of a spinning black trimmer head containing a spool of filament line. Model number and shaft serial number are located on a label on the shaft halfway between the trimmer head and the engine. The engine serial number is located on the bottom of the engine between the two screws that secure fuel tank to the engine. See illustration below,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to return the defective brushcutter/trimmer to their local RedMax dealer for a repair.
For more information concerning the nationwide recall, consumers can contact Husqvarna toll-free between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday at (877) 257-6921 or e-mail [email protected]
