Certain STIHL TS 440 Cut-Off Machines

In some cases, the belts that drive the rotating cutting wheel and also stop the wheel during a kickback of sufficient force may have been installed without proper alignment. This can present an increased risk of injury (as compared to a fully functioning TS 440 machine) in the event of a kickback of sufficient magnitude, particularly when the wheel guard is pulled back exposing the top of the wheel.

All STIHL TS 440 cut-off machines with serial numbers prior to 184922292 are potentially affected. Authorized STIHL dealers will inspect and repair machines at no charge to the customer.

Only the TS 440, shown below, is included in the recall.

All affected machines are being recalled. If you or your business has a STIHL TS 440 cut-off machine with a serial number prior to 184922292, please stop using the machine and return it to your authorized STIHL dealer for a free repair.

If you have any questions, please contact STIHL Incorporated at 1-800-610-6677 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. eastern time Monday through Friday or email [email protected].
