According to a series of articles recently published through the nation, ECHO Bear Car log splitters are being recalled over possible impact hazards.
The official recall statement was recently published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and according to the information released by the agency, the recall was deemed necessary following discoveries the end cap present in the log splitter’s hydraulic cylinders could fracture and become detached from the device. According to the firm, the loose component could fall and hit a consumer in the head.
The recall announcement also stated that the company Crary Industries has received at least three reports of end caps becoming detached from cylinders, including one report of a head injury. Consumers can identify the product by the model numbers LS27270T and LS27270 and the black and orange ECHO Bear Cat printed on the product’s cylinder.
Recalled units have been sold across the country between October of 2007 and March of 2012.
At this moment, the federal agency has urged consumers to stop using these log splitters immediately and to contact the nearest Crary Industries dealer for instructions on getting a replacement cylinder installed for free.
Hopefully, this recall announcement is successful and all recalled log splitters are fixed before anybody is seriously injured in any way. I urge you to act fast whenever you learn about a recall announcement that is related to a product you own. Stay safe and keep others safe by staying on top of all recall alerts.
