Harbor Freight Tools Recalling 1 Million Chainsaws

Reports from customers say the chainsaw will keep running even when turned off.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling more than one million chainsaws sold by Harbor Freight Tools because the chainsaws keep running even when turned off.

The recalled chainsaws are 14-inch electric chainsaws sold under these brand names:

  • Chicago Electric 
  • One Stop Gardens 
  • Portland

All three brands will have one of two model numbers: 67255 or 61592. 

The chainsaws were sold between May 2009 and February 2018 and cost about $50.

Harbor Freight has received at least 15 reports of malfunctioning chainsaws as of May 15, 2018.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, three people were cut by the malfunctioning chainsaws and a fourth person needed stitches for a serious arm injury.

Free replacements will be available starting May 21, 2018.
