Troy-Bilt and Craftsman Chainsaws recalled due to defective front handle

Posted on January 7, 2015 4:52 pm under Product Liability

The MTD Southwest Inc. announced a recall of approximately 76,000 units of Troy-Bilt and Craftsman Brand Gasoline Chainsaws the company imported due to a front handle that may break, causing the user to lose control of the power tool and possibly become injured, according to an online press release by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC) in November 2006.

The company received two injury reports related to the issue, one reported bruising while the other reported burns after coming in contact with the device’s muffler. Craftsman chainsaws were sold at Sears and Kmart stores across the U.S. Troy-Bilt brand chainsaws, on the other hand, were sold at home improvement centers, hardware stores, and independent retailers nationwide. Both of the affected brands were sold between January 2004 and June 2006.
