Gardenx branded Pilarka Spalinowa Petrol Chain Saws packaged with a model designation of YD-KW05-52. This recall alert was submitted by Poland to the EU Safety Gateway.

These Gardenx branded Pilarka Spalinowa Petrol Chain Saws products are marketed, sold and delivered as consumer-grade cordless chain saws, suitable for home use. Each of the recalled Chain Saws is predominantly orange in colour with a black Control Handle, weighs approximately 5.99 kilograms, has a blade length of 45 centimetres, has 64 links in the Cutting Chain and is packaged in multicoloured cardboard box, marked with various technical specifications on the end flap.

No EANs/barcodes, UPCs, item numbers, model numbers, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Gardenx branded Pilarka Spalinowa Petrol Chain Saw products include the reported finding that the strength of the Control Handle is inappropriate and may break while the product is in use. If this defect occurs, the Saw’s operator might not be able to properly hold and/or firmly grip the product while it is in use, increasing the risk of serious lacerations, broken bones and/or amputations. Additionally, in the event that the Drive Chain breaks, the Chain Catcher could fail, further increasing the risk of serious injury to the Saw operator and/or to those nearby.

Due to these defects, the recalled Chain Saws do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Machinery Directive and the relevant European standard EN 11681.
