Update: Briggs & Stratton Log Splitters Recalled Over Injury Hazard

Briggs & Stratton is recalling nearly 10,000 YTL 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 at least 2 incidents which resulted in broken wrists, according to the CPSC. This recall began on March 18, 2021.

What's the Problem?

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 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.
