What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2017-2019 Toro model 22618 Log Splitter
- 2017-2020 Toro model 22618HD Log Splitter
The tow pole mounting plates on affected log splitters could bend after the log splitter is towed through rugged terrain, causing the tow pole bolts to break, NHTSA said. If the tow pole bolts break, the log splitter could tip over or detach, increasing the risk of a crash.
Toro is notifying owners and dealers will upgrade the attachment plate and add additional reinforcement bolts, free of charge.
This recall began on November 24, 2020.
