What’s the Problem?
If you purchased one of the recalled chainsaws, you should stop using it immediately and return it to the point of purchase for a refund, CPSC said. Replacement saws were distributed to Harbor Freight locations on May 21, 2018.
The recall affects 2 models of Chinese-made 14-inch chainsaws sold under the following brand names “Portland,” “One Stop Garden,” and “Chicago Electric.” The Portland and One Stop Garden saws are green and black with the word “Portland” printed on the blades. The Chicago Electric is red and black and has the words “Chicago Electric” on the handle.
The recalled chainsaws were sold at Harbor Freight stores nationwide and online between May 2009 and Feb. 208 for about $50 each, CPSC said.
Harbor Freight has also recently issued a recall of a popular defective jack stand that can collapse without warning on a user causing serious injury or death. Please see this article: Harbor Freight Pittsburgh Jack Stand Recall Lawsuit
