This recall involves STIHL model HSA 65 battery-powered hedge trimmers. “STIHL” and “HSA 65” are printed on the side of the battery compartment between the trigger and the loop handle. The hedge trimmer can operate faster than expected, continue running after the trigger is released or operate by depressing either the trigger or the front handle switch individually, posing a laceration hazard. The hedge trimmer is gray and orange, with a loop handle, removable battery and a 20 inch hedge trimming blade. STIHL Inc. has received seven reports of the trigger or front handle switch not operating properly. No injuries have been reported.
