Toro Log Splitter Recall

The Toro Company is recalling certain log splitters which were potentially defectively designed in a way which makes them prone to tipping over or detaching during use, increasing the risk of a crash and severe personal injuries. 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 splitters could bend after the 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.

This recall began on November 24, 2020.

Briggs & Stratton Recalled Log Splitters

In May 2021, Briggs & Stratton recalled nearly 20,000 YTL, Longli and TIYA Log Splitters with Briggs & Stratton 250cc engines over concerns that an incorrect engine ignition coil and flywheel can lead to hard starting and engine kick back, posing an injury hazard to the operator. "The company is aware of two incidents, which resulted in broken wrists," CPSC said.

Affected products are sold under the following brands: Black Diamond (model number BDBS32T - 32 ton and YTL-015-134 - 30 ton); Crimson (YTL-590-012 - 32 ton); Lumberjack (YTL-007-414); Performance Built (YTL-007-308 and YTL-016-476 – 30 ton); Brute (model numbers YTL-140-701 - 30 ton and YTL-140-473 - 35 ton); Country Pro (YTL-019-880); Boss (model number WD32T); and Oregon (model 3000 Series – 30 ton).

In March 2021, Briggs & Stratton recalled about 9,750 YTL Log Splitters after several reports of users who broke their wrists due to engine kickback.

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), this recall affects splitters powered by Briggs & Stratton 250cc engines, with engine model number 15T232-0011-F8 and serial numbers 1904085275251 through 1905085786452; 1906146333235 through 2004080670911; and 1912319442579 through 2012073736714.

"An incorrect engine ignition coil and flywheel can lead to hard starting and engine kick back, posing an injury hazard to the operator," CPSC said. "The company is aware of two incidents, which resulted in broken wrists."

The products are sold under the following brands:

  • Black Diamond log splitter (model number BDBS32T - 32 ton)
  • Crimson log splitter (model number YTL-590-012 - 32 ton)
  • Lumberjack log splitter (model number YTL-007-414)
  • Performance Built log splitter (model number YTL-007-308)
  • Brute log splitter (model numbers YTL-140-701 -30 ton and YTL-140-743 - 35 ton)

The engine’s model number is printed on the valve cover and the engine’s serial number is printed on the blower housing cover, CPSC said.

The recalled log splitters were sold at Atwood Distributing LP; Big Blue; D&B Supply Co.; Fleet Farm, L&M Supply Inc.; Lowe’s stores; Menards; Murdoch's Ranch & Home Supply; Norby Distributing Company; North 40 Outfitters; Quincy Farm Supply Co.; Running Supply Inc.; Rural King; Theisen Supply Inc.; and Western Big Inc. stores nationwide from April 2019 through February 2021 for about $1,400.
