Harbor Freight has issued a recall on about one million electric chainsaws, due to malfunctioning power switches.

There have been about fifteen cases of the chainsaws continuing to operate after being shut off.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

This recall involves two models of 14-inch chainsaws sold under three different brand names. The Portland and One Stop Gardens brand chainsaws have a green and black color scheme and  “Portland” printed on the blades. The Chicago Electric brand chainsaw has a red and black color scheme and “Chicago Electric” printed on the chainsaw handle. All recalled chainsaws were sold with a black blade guard. The model number is printed on a label on the bottom of the chainsaw.

  • Portland Model: #67255 or 61592
  • One Stop Gardens Model: #67255 or 61592
  • Chicago Electric Model: #67255 or 61592
Chicago Electric Model

These chainsaws would have purchased from May 2009 through February 2018 for about $50, and if you have purchased one, you should immediately stop using the recalled chainsaws and return the product to their local Harbor Freight Tools store for a free replacement chainsaw.
