Mag Pro Power Tools Log Splitter Recall [EU]

 Click to enlarge image

Mag Pro Power Tools branded Log Splitters, self-contained portable power tools designed to split logs sold in a red and black color scheme with two rubberized wheels at one end of the device and black legs at the other end near the white “CE” rating sticker.

The recalled Log Splitters have a model designation of FLS-001, a power consumption rating of 1600 W and a pressure rating of 7T. No other identification including an article number, a production date/batch designation or an EAN/UPC/barcode is listed.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Log Splitting products include suspected malfunction of the two-handed safety switch in that its pressure plate moves very quickly. If this defect occurs, the operator of the Log Splitter could trigger the machine’s function with only one hand while having the second hand and/or arm in the trajectory of the pressure plate or close to the wedge, increasing the risk of injuries, including serious limb lacerations, amputation or other life-changing injuries.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Mag Pro Power Tools branded Log Splitters do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Machinery Directive and the relevant European Standard EN 609-1.

Consequently, a recall of these products from end users and a withdrawal of the product from the market withdrawn from the European marketplace has been ordered.
