STIHL recalls HSA 65 and HSA 85 Cordless Hedge Trimmers

June 22, 2016

The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer.

HSA 65 and HAS 85 Cordless Lithium-Ion Hedge Trimmers:

STIHL HSA 65 and HSA 85 Cordless Hedge Trimmers

STIHL is recalling the HSA 65 and HSA 85 cordless Lithium-Ion hedge trimmers. In rare cases, an electronic malfunction can occur in these products. As a result, under certain circumstances, the malfunction can lead to a situation where the tool starts by 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 the blades to continue to move after the trigger is released. These conditions create a risk of injury.

What to do

Owners of HSA 56 and HSA 85 Li-Ion hedge trimmers are requested stop using the tools and to consult the STIHL distributor in Ireland, which is Origo Limited.

STIHL will, via Origo, exchange all operable HSA 65 and HSA 85 hedge trimmers 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.

If you have any further queries you can contact Origo on 01 4666 700.
