THE UNITED STATES – A news report published on mix957gr.com states that the U.S. Consumer Product & Safety Commission has published a Class I safety recall announcement regarding a nationwide recall of a snowblower that has a defect that could cause an amputation. The Toro 2021 Power Max 826 OHAE Snowthrowers are affected by the recall, and the CPSC is warning purchasers not to use the snowblower.
The Toro 2021 Power Max 826 OHAE Snowthrowers were sold throughout the United States at Toro Authorized Dealers, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware nationwide and online. The units were sold from November 2020 until January 2021 for approximately $1,200.
According to the reports, Toro has received at least five reports of the snowblower’s auger failing to disengage after the safety control lever was released. A snowblower’s auger works like a twist drill that picks up the snow. When the auger “fails to disengage,” it continues to spin, which could cause serious injuries such as an amputation. Fortunately, there have not been any reports of amputations. However, many victims may not understand how to file a report or file a compensation claim.
If you own this recalled snowblower, you can contact a local Toro authorized dealer to receive your free auger system repair.
