Pressure washers recalled by STILH due to injury hazard

STIHL Pressure Washer Recalled Due to Injury HazardSTIHL is recalling about 16,400 RE 90 pressure washers.

The pressure washer nozzle can disconnect from the spray wand when under pressure during use, posing an injury hazard.

STIHL has received seven reports of the nozzle detaching from the spray wand during use. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the spray wand supplied with STIHL RE 90 pressure washers. The pressure washer is gray and orange with “STIHL RE 90” printed on the front. The recalled spray wand is 15-inches long and attaches to the spray gun.  Interchangeable nozzles connect to the spray wand.

The pressure washers were sold at authorized STIHL dealers nationwide from May 2019 through October 2019 for about $180.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pressure washers and contact STIHL or an authorized STIHL servicing dealer to receive a free replacement spray wand, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

For more information, call STIHL at 844-978-1291 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.stihlusa.com and click on “Information” and then “Product Recalls” and then “RE-90-wand-service-action.”
