Stihl 361C Chainsaw Recall

Any one who owns a Stihl 361C (C-Q version) chainsaw should stop using it immediately and contact their local Stihl authorized dealer for a safety recall. The recall involves repair of the trigger which can stick and cause failure to decelerate after the operator releases the trigger. The recall is for 5,000 361C chainsaws sold in the United States and Canada. The number sold in Canada is reported to be 340.

This is considered a serious recall since a chainsaw with a stuck trigger while running can present a risk of a laceration injury.

This recall follows not long after the December 2010 recall of Stihl FS310 bike handled trimmers which involved the ignition module.
