Husqvarna Hedge Trimmer Recall Issued Due to Fire Hazard

About 26,000 Husqvarna hedge and grass trimmers have been recalled after reports suggest they may leak fuel, posing a fire and burn hazard for consumers.

The Husqvarna trimmer recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on April 4, after the manufacturer, Husqvarna Professional Products Inc., received at least seven reports of fuel leaks. There have been no injuries reported.

The CPSC has determined that the hedge and grass trimmer fuel leaks may occur because of a rubber spacer holding the fuel lines in the fuel tank.

The recall affects about 19,500 Husqvarna Grass Trimmers with a model number of 122C and serial numbers ranging from 2011 17 00001 to 2011 52 99999. The serial number is located on a black plate under the muffler side. The recall also affects about 6,500 Husqvarna hedge trimmers with model numbers 122HD60 and 122HD45 with serial numbers ranging from 2011 17 00001 to 2011 52 99999. The serial numbers are located on a black plate on the gear box. Both the grass trimmers and hedge trimmers have “Husqvarna” and the model number written on top of the trimmer.

The recalled trimmers were sold at Lowes, Sears and Husqvarna dealers nationwide from May 2011 through January 2012 for between $150 and $320.

The CPSC recommends that consumers who have the affected trimmers stop using them immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a free repair. Consumers with questions can call Husqvarna at (877) 257-6921, visit the company’s website at or e-mail the company at
