Craftsman and Remington Chainsaws recalled: Outdoor tools were a popular Christmas gift, but these chainsaws just don’t cut it. Right now there are two separate brand recalls that have been issued. The first is by Craftsman. These chainsaws have been shown to leak fuel, which makes them a fire hazard. Luckily, the recall only impacts around 19,500 devices. Contact Craftsman at 1-866-864-2949 if you have already purchased one of these models.
The second recall is smaller, and by the Remington brand. However, it’s for the same issue as the Craftsman recall. The recall only impacts around 8,000 machines with the following model numbers: RM4214, RM4218 and RM4620 and serial numbers 1K155XQ0198 through 1F076XQ0200.
