We have become aware that some Hitachi Brush Cutters have a manufacturing defect. This defect may cause the exhaust to become very hot so that there is a risk of suffering a burn in the event of accidental contact with the exhaust cover or in extreme cases a risk that the machine could catch fire.

If you own a Hitachi Brush Cutter, please check the model number located as in Figures 1 and 2 to see whether it is on the list of affected models.

If you have an affected Brush Cutter please stop using it immediately.
