Recall of the Week: Flaming Stihl Chain Saw

Although the recall for the Stihl MS 192 Chain Saw is not nearly as gory as we might have hoped, the fact that the chain saws can “leak fuel” and then spark to create a fire leads to some interesting mangling opportunities. It would, however, make the chopping down of trees for heat a more efficient process.

Stihl advises taking your pre-explosion chain saws to your authorized Shihl dealer for a free repair.
