STIHL Yard Power Tools Recalled

If you’re manicuring your yard with STIHL gas-powered machines with “toolless“ caps, put down the hedge trimmer and return it to an authorized dealer. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, STIHL is recalling 2.3 million yard power tools with toolless fuel caps. The caps, designed to be opened easily by hand, may not fit correctly and pose a fire risk.
